Facia colours?

Hi all, In building a new layout this will be the first one that I've actually gone to the trouble of putting a MDF fascia on. Now what colour to use? Green seems to be the standard but I'm not 100% sure I want to go that way. What colours have others used and can the post photos for me to compare? ...

Re: SG Brake Vans

I wasn't happy with the Auscision A class second run headlights and marker light colour so I replaced and upgraded them with more realistic coloured ones and while I was at it I added so...

Re: Powerline AS & BS Cars

I'm not sure about the lettering on the VR blue second car, it has the word SECOND right in the middl...

Re: Underway in the Workshops

Well it is finally finished, I think this has been possibly the longest project I've done. I kept putting it off and into the too hard basket but it is finally done. I'm happy with the results. A little weathering will make it look better as will modifying the sound file to get it to notch up amd do...

Re: Underway in the Workshops

It's been quite a while but here's something I've been working on over the last couple of days. I wasn't happy with the lighting in the Auscision X classes so I have completely gutted mine and gone for broke on it. I have etched new circuit boards and repositioned the speaker from the body to the fu...
