Chris Hopper – Weathering

Chris HopperChris has had a life-long fascination with railways both model and prototype.  

He has a wide range of modelling interests and has built a number of exhibition layouts which have featured in the model press including Pixash Lane (4mm BR); Bakewell Street  (7mm BR); Gilbert Junction (3.5mm US) and Gare de Brindille (16mm WDLR). Chris’s most recent exhibition layout “Penmaenbach” is featured on the covers of the December 2021 Railway Modeller magazine and the December 2022 BRM, see his description of how he worked on it at the Missenden Summer Retreat.

Chris has been a participant in the Weathering Course at Missenden for a number of years and has benefitted enormously from the knowledge and expertise of Tutors Tim Shackleton and Mick Bonwick.  

He recently described his experience in a short article for the Missenden 2020 Virtual Autumn weekend and has a Flickr album of his work, click here to view
