Re: Michaela’s workbench

Ooh, very nice! That 4MT is particularly stunning. Nice work with the teak effect too, a technique I have yet to attempt, but would like to accomplish (not that I have any particular need to, but that's not the point). Keep it coming!

Re: Edgware GN, Back to the Atlantic.

Looking very neat Manna. The smokebox lining for the Gresley front end is a bugger, with no reference points, I've seen it written that no 2 A4s had it quite the same! Could you point me towards that thread on filing lining pens please? Although I have one simple one that I bought pre-honed from gol...

Re: A question about domes

They're actually the safety valves, Salter Spring safety valves, and early type that fell out of favour after about 1880 or so. Hopefully this should explain.

Re: A new start in Finescale OO: NSR Stone junction station

Apologies for confusing Ex-Pat the other week, but to explain I posted a picture of my model of the station building on a North Staffordshire Railway Facebook group and was blown away by the comments and likes, especially gratifying were those from people who actually lived in Stone. I even had an o...

Re: Small 00 carriages

4 wheel coaches are unlikely to have survived towards the end of steam, even on some backwater line they didn't last much beyond the 1930s. However: There are the ratio GWR 4-wheel coaches https://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/1541/1303/products/613.jpg?v=1535719802 These are plastic kits, they go toget...

Re: ticket platforms

I had never even heard of them before this post, but a quick google revealed this: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ticket_platform which hopefully explains them sufficiently. Fascinating, I've learnt something new! :)

Re: First build

That's a pretty good first scratch-build, nice one! I should think it was probably pine wood of some description rather than balsa. Good stuff, and welcome to the forum. :) Thank you. Pine makes sense, I want to know as the veg box was a lucky find so I will need to buy off eBay or some such next t...

Re: Network south east paint.

Here you go: https://www.phoenix-paints.co.uk/products/precisionrailway/sectorisation/nse

If you want to know exactly what colour goes where, ask someone else, I haven't a clue! :lol: NSE is way outside my sphere of knowledge. But I do know Phoenix paints are the best.

Re: source of buffers?

Hi, welcome to the forum. Do you mean buffers or buffer stops? My first stop for the actual buffers is usually https://www.wizardmodels.ltd/ all sorts of different buffers there covering the entirety of the steam era, loads of different pre-grouping (1923) designs of buffers along with more common o...

Re: Hawick via Grantham, Inverness and SIAM (00 gauge DC)

Very neat and tidy. Mercifully the building at Stone didn't involve too many gutters thanks to the way the roofs are constructed but the few that there are are becoming unavoidable jobs now!
