Re: NRM 2017 00 'Tour' STARTED

Put me down to be #15 please Geoff, I have convinced myself that I have sufficient time to make a presentable scene.

Re: NRM 2017 00 'Tour' STARTED

Hmmm, sounds like this could be fun, I shalln't add my name to the list just yet, but if I have success planting some bushes this week, i'll jump in to the fray. Could do with something to distract me after the phone call I've had regarding my most recent MRI.

Re: Goathland Station

Scale model scenery are very good from what I have seen, the owner Justin is very communicative as well, so any issues or questions, communcation wuoldn't be a problem

That's insane, I may grab a replacement shell for my Nellie if these things are worth so much. The chassis is fine and happy to race along.

Re: More eBay nonsense...........

Yep, the funny thing is, she does sell a lot of items at very reasonable prices, it's just the odd items that you look at and go "Huh?". I suspect that she looked around, saw some of the other high prices being asked for the Triang 0-4-0s and it's very much a case of the stupid leading the...

Re: Photobucket 3rd Party Hosting

I have used photobucket for years, never had any problems until recently, so never saw the need to look at flikr or anywhere else.

Re: Look out Flickr here we come.

i'll look into flikr at some point, for now I have used the google drive workaround for here, (although RMweb doesn't like it). Those guys will have to put up with links for now, although it doesn't look like I have lost my old links yet, even ones I was uploading and linking to over the weekend, wh...

Re: Photobucket 3rd Party Hosting

But Geoff and Nickbrad, why the gloom? Sure, PB have shown themselves to be nothing more than tuppenny-ha'penny ransom-ware peddlers but: - PB was becoming hopelessly clunky and those dreadful adverts..... - I will now use my photo-editing software to size pictures for posting, having forced myself...

Re: Gantsville - Building an HO Inglenook

Picked up a couple of items today from an ebay seller 3 miles away, rather than pay postage, I just go collect. She does have unrealistic expectations on a Triang Connie, (which you can read about shortly in the relevant ebay madness thread,) but overall, some bargains to be had. Take a look at http...

Re: Photobucket 3rd Party Hosting

I agree with you Geoff, if a solution cannot be found whereby I can keep posting free picture links online, then I will be done. I'm not going to rely on facebook hosting, it's very sloppy and considering my varied interests, I can see me losing many connections on there if I was forced to post all ...

Re: Gantsville - Building an HO Inglenook

Finally found some filler and experiments are undergoing...... I thought the mix would be too stiff with just PVA and powder, so added some water, but that seems to have made it too runny, so the next tree will get an attempt with just pva/powder mix. Another tree i tried putting a masking tape wrap...

Re: Modern image 6ft x 20 inch depot kinda layout :)

A great start and much faster progress than me. My only slight critisism is the gritting bins, I'm not too sure councils will be bothered about a dirt track getting frozen in winter. I do really like the track though, very well modelled.

Re: Gantsville - Building an HO Inglenook

Tree production is being delayed, but not for a reason I'd have expected..... all my usual places to go to for filler powder do not have any in stock, (or only have branded pollyfilla for almost £4 a small box). Once I locate somewhere that actually has some, my trees will hopefully start coming to ...
