Re: Birmingham New Street and Brettell Road in P4

You simply "stretched" a wagon! lol, talk about understatement! Terrific work as usual! I have always had a hankering to make the traditional BR fluorescent Tee lamps and have them lit. There is one supplier, but theirs is rather thick and dumpy! To that end, I designed one in 3D and print...

Re: m.levin's layout thread

I advocate aluminium sheet for strength, with a printed sheet on top and covered with perspex. It just means that you can disasemble later and replaced the paper print if it changes or fades. https://www.newrailwaymodellers.co.uk/Forums/viewtopic.php?f=22&t=44849&start=195

Re: PNP's O-16.5 Workbench

That's terrific, I love animated stuff, the build looks great too! I have played with Arduino's, but connecting with phones is beyond me! (busy learning 3D printing, so Arduino projects are on hold)
