how to make post and wire fencing

hi YouTube this is Pam Weber's all I do a little how-to video made up this gate and all this fencing up through abrogate their the defense went up over the hill and surround the top coming back down through and over the slope and they are low on railway lines and quite cheap and easy to do and what we want to show you what we actually do here's a little worm piece I'd done just to give you an idea basically just drill one half mill diameter holes through a matchstick and obviously then Fred some wire through so we use them florist wire and that roll there I don't think is like a third of the way through and I've done all that that you can see up through there both sides up through arraign they're writing the track there and then over this side gun away right the way along to there put the little braces in to study it up a bit little bit time-consuming but quite good fun so basically what I did have a link for timber focus in the minute and I drilled holes dictums of 8 3 mil diameter holes every 25 mil apart and then obviously I use that as a drilling template so I just literally drop that on the layout drill down through and then obviously the matchsticks push they down into the holes and the holes are about 8 mil apart and it represents like a just over a bag of meter high fence with the post space of 2 meter intervals if you do a jig like that with all the holes in it's quite easy I had like a big bag of matches but I find a lot of the ends would split when he was drilling so I went to Swan Buster matches and I think it was like 35 P a box and the section this size was just taken just over a box of matches box and a half perhaps and the gate I made a little jig up just here well overly clear but obviously just our electrical wire cut some slots in the timber just to rest the wire in and made a jig up for solder in the gates up quite quite cheap it's quite good fun to make and then something else I've tried obviously I painted the posts with some real match paint and then I like done a little bit of rust effect just here there little bit light colour dark colour let some of the / shine through and obviously with the video I wouldn't say it's brilliant and give the whole effect but looks quite good and then add a bit of rail scenic sir or woodland Scenic's foliage which i think is a little bit like the hockey floor but murder nothing doesn't look as good but just put a little bit of that up over which rubber and just being able to see right through it here's one with a anything on it yeah and I'll see there's one with it few little Tufts there the 12 mil static grass just dabs ends over it with some paint unless the colors I used on the movie – here on the wires it's typical demonic focus so we had my trust break dust and I used the frame dirt for the posts so well all I think being eaten by there I think the wheels cats are right for full time if I time for enough to do about a meter I think that cost cost me a fair bit of time wouldn't say it's quick quick job but quite enjoyable tell us your fault so hopefully it's been helpful we'll see comments are pretty shaded as I say by flag

  1. Hello Kevin, just come across this video, your work on the fencing is excellent, did you build the fencing in sections or did you put each fence post separately on your layout then feed the wire through?
    Well done!

  2. Nice movie I think. However you can make it yourself. Just google 'woodprix' and learn how to do it very easy.

  3. Hi Kevin, i am new to this railway modelling, approx 6 months now and often watch your uploads. I would love to see all that scenery again but with you moving the camera a lot lower please as i have just built the Metcalfe farm buildings and i am looking for ideas.

  4. Hi Kevin, Alfredo in Macau. Thanks very much for sharing. Your generosity has touched one more soul, this one, in the South of China. Very inspiring.

  5. Great job, lovely layout and useful video……….however, I am sure I am not alone in finding your camera-work a bit distracting. You frequently pan from place to place, which is fine and perfectly understandable, but then pause for only a fraction of a second before panning elsewhere. We can see no details when you are panning, just form a general impression.

    PLEASE don't take this as any form of attack, I am simply TRYING to be helpful. As a beginner, I found your video and similar videos very useful. Thank you.

  6. Nice one kev,  don't do railway,modelling,watched your vid on static grass applicator,long time ago and subbed up, just popped in to see what your up to,hell lay out look's great,best regards Allan

  7. Hi Kevin, what gauge florist wire did you use?
    Will make the fencing for the diorama I'm doing for dad and you're idea is perfect, good man you.

  8. although i have watch this video many times, i am having problems with the matches splitting as i drill through them. and i have used swan

  9. You're a genius Keven, that is amazing bit of wire fencing, and I suppose you could use the same florist wire for telegraph poles as well…

  10. Cheers Kevin ,,,, it must have just been the lighting /shadow that made it look like rail in the other video,,, pretty nifty job ,,,, I like it,,,,  Thanks Alan  

  11. hey Kevin great idea for the fence & gate. i'd have to do every thing 1/2 the size a little too tedious for me. thanks for sharing 🙂
    i'm sorry to ask this question are you Brit or Aussie… just like to know where my vids are being watched
    BTW.. thanks for the sub… i have subbed back

  12. hi Les thanks for the comments really enjoyed doing the fences like looking around and trying to make out how to make things rather than buy them like you say they then fit what you are making thanks again

  13. hi thanks for the comments got drill bits at hobbycraft shop bought a set from 1/4 mm ut to 3mm with small sizes in between i think abou t£4 or £5

  14. hi sim thanks for the comments did not do it all in one go could do about 35matchsticks in an hour and thread the wires and paint so did an hour now and again but quite rewarding when it was done kevin

  15. Great ideas and nicely expressed on the video, thank you for sharing them! It must have taken a fair while to do all those lengths of fencing but sounds like you enjoyed it and it looks great 🙂 – Sim

  16. hi Richard thanks for the comments i used that template on the curved section at the top just drilled 2 or 3 hole then move the template around to take it around the corner then did another 2 or 3 etc etc etc , all right on the outside of curve !! am going to do a bit more undergrowth around fence and see what that looks like ,once again thanks

  17. Looks Great !, another handy tip for all of us within the model railway community online. Speaking as a former Railway employee of 20 years on the railway, your fencing is very accurate in terms of ''stock fencing '' complete with vegetation, as somebody who used to maintain ths type of rural fencing, it s very well modelled, the support bars are done well, template is a good idea also

    I imagine you would maybe need to make up a curved jig for fenceline's on curved track ?

  18. Very informative. I like the fences and the gate. They came out great. I always like seeing some farm scenes.

  19. Very effective gates & fencing, all sits rather well on the layout, great work. Cheers Mike.
