Re: Linka

Home printers can not print pure white!
I will look over the weekend and see if I can find my acetate sheets.

Re: Linka

You should check out www.linkaonline.co.uk, it is Scalecast's original site and has lots of history/info/builds to look at.

Re: Linka

I also have an almost complete collection of LINK ROOMS

I am not sure whether I should use them or keep for prosperity?

Re: Linka

I bought a kit cheap off Ebay as I had never seen it before and seemed rare, it has standard moulds but comes with some weird special bits, including cardboard, printed signage, plastic windows and as shown, cast metal and pre-cast components! I have documented it all and sent the files to Scalecast...

Re: Car Boot

E2E, I was just guessing, I simply assumed it was stronger. The key, is the quoted values of N/mm2 (Newtons per millimetre squared) compressive strength Scroll to the bottom of the Maragon site and also quoted by Scalecast Herculite No2 - 31 N/mm2 Tuffcast - 40 N/mm2 Crystacast = Tuffcast Extra - 55...

Re: Soldering Iron

I doubt any 15w soldering iron would be of any use for most jobs except if you're building white metal "low melt solder" kits. End2end The above sentence is slightly confusing, I think what E2E is saying is that 15W is good for electronics but may be under powered for white metal , correc...

Re: Control panel build issue

If you can't take the aspect signals apart and swap the polarity of the LED's, then you would have to swap all your LED's around in your panel and change to switched negative and common positive like the Aspects! The two systems are used 50/50, usually dictated by transistors/chips being NPN or PNP,...

Re: Lumsdonia R&D Dept Workbench - Airbrush woes

I went to do my first ever rolling stock repaint with my airbrush and hit a problem. My airbrush has always been a bit problematic, attributed to using very old Humbrol enamels. Since moving to acrylic and getting a quality airbrush, most problems have gone away. I know I am pushing the limits by us...

Re: Lumsdonia Website and YouTube Updates

I could do with spending some time reading your site. There is a lot on there to read. It must have taken ages to write. It is certainly getting to be a site with more substance and content! :) It does take quite some time, several hours to create each new page. A lot comes from text I have written...

Re: Lumsdonia Website and YouTube Updates

Due to frequent questions on forums and facebook, the mysterious subject and strong debate on Cork vs Nothing vs Foam has resulted in me making a webpage guide to direct questioner's to!

Re: Is a final coat of Acrylic clear needed?

I don't think it is necessary for non rolling stock, that are not handled regularly, as static items if not touched will not get the surface disturbed or rubbed.
