Re: What sort of couplers are these?

Hi Chops, closer examination of the loco would suggest that the coupling has not been fitted, all the pipework has been applied instead suggesting that it has been someones display model, you would probably have to remove much of the gubbins from the bufferbeam to fit the coupling as it gets in the ...

Re: Gateside and Northbridge (Incorporating the Allanshaw Inglenook)

Cracking job Jim, the paintwork finish is second to none, you must be very pleased with the outcome, 'I would be'. Jim. Thanks Jim, yes I am very pleased with that one, and it is spurring me on to do more, next small project underway tonight is to take the small Metcalf office that you can see in s...

Re: Motorised Carriage

I have an incomplete beavertail observation car kit that would have addressed that, it is made entirely from clear plastic, it was meant to be painted with the windows left clear, never go round to building it though

Re: Need help with a plan-OO gauge

You have also re-introduced that clearance issue at the entrance to the yard - beware of this especially when using small radius curves. If you have something parked on the main line and then run a loco into the yard it will probably side swipe

Hi Lamplighter - welcome to the forum, I am also working on a shunting plank (see link on signature - go to the last few posts), A plank can be made into a really interesting layout, :)

Re: Tinwald workbench

Excellent weathering, I too would love to invest in an airbrush and compressor, but I continually put it off, have you tried the Matt Aerosols available form Halfords, they do a Dark (camouflage) brown and a khaki which are excellent for dusting to give a general dirty appearance, also the pound sho...

Re: Dad-1 - Workbench - West Bay Wagon Works

Hi Geoff - would it not be better to add a square of plasticard then drill through, this would allow the shoulder to sit tight against a flat surface rather than protruding.

Re: Sales query

Just to add a couple of potential selling methods if you do not like Ebay, try Gumtree or Facebook's market place section at that stage, as you can avoid the fees and other red tape that has been known to cause grief.

Re: Gateside and Northbridge (Incorporating the Allanshaw Inglenook)

And the fuel tank is completed at last!! It has been a true kitbash, with Dapol (main support), Ratio (Tanks and some pipework), Knightwing (other bits of pipework), Slaters (plasticard), Wills (pump hut), Plastrut and Evergreen (girders). Last job was to fit the intake pipe between the pump shed (W...

Re: Giraffe's workbench

I seem to recall that the solution for things like that is a two part glue. I can't recall the glue at the moment. It is a popular glue. Mind has gone blank. Araldite? (Two part Epoxy Resin) a devil to work with, stinks to high heavens but you cannot beat it as a way of sticking two things together...
