Re: Gateside and Northbridge (Incorporating the Allanshaw Inglenook)

Re: RC CONTROLLED LIMA DELTIC

Nice to see you back! What is the hold up with reversing, just not got round to it or is it technical ?(doubt it is as most RC controllers have at lest two channels). Why did you have to butcher the body?

Re: 5volt to 12volt converter

Abutments look great, I am in the no paper brigade as well, next project is a multi arch stone bridge, I am currently messing about with embossing clay, but if it does not work out, I may resort back to linka and if that don't work, will end up with plastic! :lol:

Re: Code for Arduino - flashing lights

JFYI, the other Timb and I started a thread on arduino's here that makes interesting reading and Rudy has just started one here

There is a dozen ways to program what you want! A lot boils down to personally preferred methods!

Re: Code for Arduino - flashing lights

You can also replace the fixed times with randomised times, but control the range that they can be randNumber = random(100,500); // generate random number between 100 & 500 Sometimes the random in Arduino is less so, but can be better if this is used: https://www.arduino.cc/reference/en/language...
