Re: Backscene blending

I think your best bet is to upload copies to one of the picture hosting sites, choose one that has a resize facility. Resize down to somewhere around 1000 pixels wide, the height is immaterial as the renderer scans from side to side, top to bottom like a TV image. Most cameras these days can far out...

Re: Backscene blending

Firstly what are you posting from, PC, Mac, Android or IOS device? It makes advice more meaningful if we know what we are aiming at. The renderer should resize automatically but it could have an upper limit, picture files seem to get bigger by the day. If you have the facility to edit and resize, tr...

Re: Kato track - DCC?

Track is ok you just need to know what sort of points they are. If you use droppers and insulated rail joiners on the points it won't matter..

Re: Removing decals from a Hornby 0-4-0 steam loco

I'd rub down 'till you can't feel the edges, mask around the panel and apply grey primer, then a new coat of matt black.

Re: Removing decals from a Hornby 0-4-0 steam loco

Is that orirginal Hornby? I thought they used Tampo printing, which would mean it was a layer of paint.

Re: McLaren Models Falkirk

It's a consolation that these shops do remain as on-line traders, but I've often wondered if there's a way that they can still provide a degree of hands on trading. I assume that going on-line is indicative of too little footfall to support the shop rental. What you lose when they go online is the a...

Re: Backscene blending

Hi Ewood, welcome to the forum. Pretty good job on the perspective. A great way to hide joins on roads is a reinstatement scar, where they've put a cable or pipe in. The new infill is usually a touch darker than the original surface. The other thing you can use is a zebra crossing, the white patches...

Re: Bill's New Extension. ----Update.

There's an easy way if you have a decent sized desktop and can see to edit in your browser and look for files on the desktop at the same time, but placement can be a bit hairy. Just drag a picture file from the desktop into the editing space and its name should appear in the attachments then do the ...

Re: Dapol 122 4D-015-008 No Accessories!

Dapol has always had minor parts supply problems. They aren't the only ones but possibly the worst, I've had variations in the contents of supposedly identical items bought at the same time, annoying!

Re: Very simple question,

I have a brass "metrestick" it came off a well worn dressmaking table thrown out from the college where I worked, hence being metric. It comes in when you want to cut an A1 sized sheet of card, so hang on to your yardstick.

Re: Beamish Museum

The second coach in that last short train looks like a good candidate on which to base a modified Hornby 4 wheeler.
