Back Issue: June 2014 AMRM

The June 2014 issue of AMRM is now available as a back issue.

The June issue cover has a very fine shot from the camera of Ray Pilgrim, illustrating an evocative NSW locomotive shed scene on David Allan's Belltrees depot, which is featured inside the magazine.

The contents of the June issue.

Our cover feature is a description of David Allen's HO scale 1970s era NSW
locomotive depot with words and pictures from Ray Pilgrim. 

Also featured is the conclusion to Iain Hunter's description of his dual gauge, UK based,
HO scale exhibition layout based on Broadford in Victoria. 

AMRM's past editor, Ross Hurley, describes his methods of creating gum trees which results in a scale model of a tree, rather than just something that reminds one of a tree!

Peter Burman comprehensively describes how to make working diaphragms for passenger cars, a method that works in any scale and for any prototype and also has the great advantage of eliminating the unsightly gap between carriages.

Peter Ennis returns with another of his very useful series on building models of the more obscure VR rolling stock that are very unlikely to ever be offered as kits, let alone r-t-r.

Andrew George describes some simple detailing tricks that will improve any
scene in any scale.

Craig Veitch continues his interesting layout building series with a treatise on the
importance of getting things running properly!

Ron Cunningham returns with another Branchline Ramblings, this time describing
the simple safeworking system he is building on his layout to keep
drivers on this large layout under control!

We don't normally cover specific exhibitions anymore, but the recent Aus7 Expo at Casula had some very interesting examples of fine modelling in O scale that we thought were worth sharing with our readers.

The recent all-Australian Hobson's Bay club exhibition over Easter in Melbourne has bumped up the number of new items to report in the well-filled pages of the Recent Releases and News sections. Reviews featured in this issue include the books, Iron Work Horses, Peninsula Pioneer Revisited and The Phoenix Foundry - Locomotive Builders of Ballarat, plus the kit for an HO scale NSWGR 18' louvred van from IDR Railway Castings and the r-t-r N scale NSWGR 'American' end-platform cars from Gopher Models.

Forget those blurry thumbnails on the net, if you want to see top quality images of what has been released and what is coming, take a look in AMRM!
