Re: Edgware GN,

G'Day Gents Hi Jim, I try to, but not always, as there's nothing available, the J3 and 4. I took the dimensions from the 'K's' J3, the D2, O1, C1&2 those came from the 'Railway Modeller' some are from drawings off of the net that I have managed to scale to my needs, The J17, is all guesswork, as...

G'day Gents

don't know about Mallard, but years ago, people complained that the B12 and the Hall, could run at a scale 200 MPH. ??

Re: Edgware GN,

G'Day Gents Busy, Busy, Busy, on almost everything except model railways :o so not a lot has happened on the Atlantic, although I've managed to make the splasher. The J17 has had a bit of time spent on it, chimney replaced with a chimney from 'Thomas' who is now running around 'Topless' !! the front...

Re: Edgware GN,

Have stopped work on the J17, waiting parts from the UK. So back to the Atlantic, cab, boiler and running plate are now all glued together and the firebox, I think it's a fraction high, I might be able to lower it a bit, but not much, or I'll leave the top of the boiler to thin.

Re: Edgware GN,

G'Day Gents Hi Ex Pat, I think I'll have to slim the bow pen down, leaves a line on the loco more like the white lines down the middle of the road !! I dug in the cupboard for the C1 large Atlantic, time to restart it, after a bit of work, I made a comment about the old Tri-Ang 3F, say that about 50...

Re: Edgware GN,

G'Day Gents

Hi Coops, To tell the truth, I've never fully lined a loco, so there's got to be a first, I bought a lining (bow) pen a couple of weeks ago, so I'll give it a go, don't know if I'm any good :D

I'll give the coaches (mainline only) a primrose line in due course.

Re: Edgware GN,

G'Day Gents

Busy days continue, fitted class numbers to coach doors, and have started to line the Ivatt Single, the transfers are very old, 35 years + and that's how long it is since I've lined a loco. Enjoy.
