Karl Crowther will return to once again lead the semaphore signalling course.
This ‘hands on’ course is aimed both at modellers with previous experience of model signal construction as well as those wishing to start out on the road to constructing working semaphore signals. All levels of ability will be welcome, from those wishing to start with the basics through to more advanced subjects such as bracket and ground signals.
A new course for 2023 led by a new tutor to the Missenden Weekends, Giles Favell.
Giles will be focusing on the techniques he has used to produce scale radio controlled road vehicles in both 7mm and 4mm scale. The course will guide you through building a chassis and how to add the drive and radio control.
Christopher Langdon will be running an electronics course aimed at those modellers with little or any knowledge or experience of electronics. This is a weekend of theory and practical work which will provide a foundation for using modern electronics to enhance the realistic working of your model railway.
The course focuses on building some of the MERG CBUS layout control bus boards, these kits will be available for purchase from the tutor.
Chris Hopper will once again be taking the weathering course. Chris will cover a variety of methods for achieving realistic weathered effects on your models, using both air brushing and non-air brushing techniques.
A limited number of air brushing stations will be available for those that do not have their own.
