Re: Building smoke?

I suspect it's like using real water, it doesn't scale down very well. Hmm very interesting b308. :idea: I've never heard that before, but I'm far from being a long time modellor so maybe just not come across it. What about representations of smoke perhaps?

Re: Soldering

I have to agree with the last 2 posts My droppers are soldered to the sides of the tracks but are not seen as I've painted the track with RailMatch's SLEEPER GRIME. I saw the presoldered fishplates and thought..... they look a bit naff and would cost a bomb for my layout... I'll do it myself . :mrgr...

Re: Bi-directional lighting on HSTs

Sorry. My last post was meant to be a quote on RAFHAAA96's post. Anyway, the values will be different for red and green. Start with 1K and probably go higher from there. It's really a matter of personal preference as to how bright you want the lights to be. Er... don't you mean red and WHITE. :? :l...

Re: Few newbie questions

Just an idea.
What about fixing multiple (4-6) castors in a row, horizontally to one end. That way when you stand it up on it's end you can freely move it about on the castors.
Thanks

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

I'm almost ready to start adding the windows. I have a large cut up milk bottle for the frosted windows and have had an idea but not sure it will work. I have an idea to place some clear acetate like plastic over the milk bottle peice I will use, to make it seem glass-like / shiny on the outside. Wh...

Re: HST 43046 - 43080 Loco + Dummy. 3 or 5 pole?

Is there anywhere I can find information on all the swallow liveried HST's that Hornby have released upto now? I know there's a DCC one coming at £299.99 not yet released but I mean previous to that one. Perhaps including details like which motor is inside / pure Hornby or ex-lima / working head and...
