Re: A bit of progress.

John, it's a Townstreet plaster cast kit thing. At least if it isn't the name is something similar. Very expensive but very good.

And flattery will get you most things. :)

Re: A bit of progress.

Returning to the forum has at least got a little spark of interest going. Got a vague idea that perhaps the best thing would be to start on a very small scale, no pun intended. By that let's forget finishing off the boat end of the layout and concentrate on a detail, the layout is sadly lacking a po...

Re: A bit of progress.

You are a nice lot. Actually I knew that because when I was heavily into the layout I received one hell of a lot of encouragement from this forum. Yes, losing a loved one is very very, difficult, I don't think anyone else can fully understand, we are all individuals. But let me try and explain the s...

Re: A bit of progress.

I did get as far as running a rubber over the track, all seems to work alright. The problem is since my wife, died a lack of motivation. I have tried several times but it all comes to nothing. Actually I am beginning to think I should face reality and consign the whole lot to the wheelie bin, and st...

Re: A bit of progress.

Been absent rather a long time Haven't done any modelling for ages and beginning to doubt if I ever shall. Everytime I look in the playroom O get a guilty conscience does it happen to us all? Anyway here's a snap to prove I am still around. Brian. http://i684.photobucket.com/albums/vv203/Brian1940_2...

Re: A bit of progress.

Incidentally the 'Chalkie' finger works on stock. B.....r spending money on weathering. Two minutes waving the finger and there you go.

Re: Clifton 009 Layout

I am permanently confused Ken, it come's from being a Brightonian. :shock: I do think particularly those who buy building kits of larger structures etc should think about the discrepancy. As I say especially for someone thinking to run a dual gauge layout. 00 gauge 4mm and narrow gauge built to 3.5m...

Re: Clifton 009 Layout

This question of 009 scale has a pitfall if one is contemplating a dual gauge layout. Mixing Continental stock is fine i.e 009 is n gauge rail built to HO gauge scale. So it works. Whereas 009 narrow gauge running with 00 gauge doesn't, HO is roughly 10% smaller. Most adult Preiser figures for examp...
