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

When I wanted some chain, the price of hobby stuff was scary, so after a lot of research, I discovered that jewellery suppliers are a lot cheaper! For fine stuff (crane chain, hold downs etc), the cheapest are silver (yes real silver) necklace chains, come in packs of 10 for just £4 and even have a ...

Re: Layout sounds

How about something like this: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Mini-Portable-Digital-MP3-Player-Clip-USB-Music-Media-Play-Fit-Micro-SD-TF-Card/352809170897?hash=item522510b7d1:g:FMgAAOSwgrBdkagM It's basically an autonomous music player like an iPod Shuffle but at a fraction of the price.

Re: St. Blazey's - My first layout - Stage 3 Building

I can't argue with PnP's previous post, but if all 2 on the left and all 4 white lines are fed, then you should not need to feed the points at all.

Re: Micro layout in O-16.5

You are creating a real scene on the platform, very artistic! Might I suggest you move the motorbike to be further on to the bridge, it will make it more photographic as it will not draw the eye to the edge of the layout.

Re: Lumsdonia

That stained glass is rather novel, and very impressive. Ironically, I have been collecting pictures of stained glass for many years, the intent being to print them on acetate when required for my church build. After finally taking the plunge and buying the Petite Properties kit, partly because it ...

Re: Lumsdonia

My Petite Properties church diorama is progressing well, if only very slowly (detail takes time!) I will eventually make a video showing both the features and the build, but for now, here are some teasers . . . . .

Re: Lumsdonia

Continuing my Petite Properties church build, I was not happy with the buttresses as supplied, so decided to make my own, as I am using SMS quoins, I made a master, glued a wooden former together and cast it in silicon, so I can now crank out lots of the same in plaster. Buttress 1037.jpg Buttress 1...

Re: St. Blazey's - My first layout - Stage 3 Building

Another idea is to use a terminal strip (choccy block) with the plastic stripped off as a screwed connector and use a dog leg crank similar to what is proposed above just using 0.6 or 1mm wire connected to existing. Hard to describe but could russel up a drawing if your interested

Only 18 months to answer! :lol:
I would like to see some more activity on this forum, the rate of postings seems to have gone down drastically in the last year or two! (also guilty of not posting much but that will change now that I have my modelling mojo back!

Re: The story of PETERSDALE my OO gauge Branch Line layout

I don't really have a long enough runable layout, as yet, but collect wagons toward fixed rakes, so far 1,200 and counting! Is that an addiction too? :lol:
P.S. I dare not ever count the number of Loco's I have, as it may scare me! :o

Re: Lumsdonia

I also bought the Petite Properties St Thomas Church and have started the build. It will feature built in sound, full lighting (two circuits) and an exiting, never been seen before, mystery feature. Here is a sneak peak of the lighting. I have yet to discern a covering for it that pleases me, doing ...
