Re: Doing some research

I can only answer from a personal perspective. I may build an airfix model and buy a diecast car if it will fit in with my scale/look of my layout. My other hobbies are far removed from modelling but skills I've gained in other areas like work etc. have crossed over. Soldering Audio/Sound Wiring Pla...

Re: Doing some research

How did you get into railway modelling? I had an Intercity train set with a double loop layout as a child and then got reinspired as an adult. Why do you buy online vs in store? I buy from both but online is easier to price match to find the best price. I try not to make random purchases in a model ...

Re: Doing some research

OK those I can do now. :) Do railway modellers consider themselves as collectors or hobbyists? - Neither. I consider myself a lowly modeller. Do you purchase railway models online? If not why not? Yes Do you visit model shops, if so what for? Community / Socialising / Shopping? Yes for shopping and ...

Re: Hornby Rail-freight wagons

monty2420, you might have some luck at a train fair. The prices would definatly be more reasonable than those 2nd hand ones at £19.
Hope it helps
Thanks

Re: The Little Big Eight

As I need one "British style" train, I ordered (Hatton's) a steam loco, a wagon and a coach. I've only just seen this post and your short 4 wheel coach. Have you had a look at this? - Improving the Hornby 4 Wheel Coach https://www.newrailwaymodellers.co.uk/Forums/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=5...

Re: A Real Big Eight

Is it not because this isn't lined up properly? BIG DOUBLE EIGHT E2E.jpg It might be an idea to place the start of the curves so they are properly horizontally lined up rather than starting "around the bend" as it were. And as its A Real Big Eight ...shouldn't there be some more straights?...

Re: Financial Woes Continue

I do hope the new direction will still have a branch concentrating on train sets. I think it's definatly a route into the hobby for some with everything included to get you up and running. And easy to buy too from the likes of Argos. Although making sure to cover both the DCC and DC bases. Not negle...

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

I had another idea for the ridge tiles. Instead of using the tiny convex Linka tiles I thought it might be easier to use a long length of convex plastic and just mark it for the tile gaps. Unfortunatly a visit to my local model shop left me bereft as they didn't have what I needed. Lots of beams and...

Re: Financial Woes Continue

I'm not sure if that's Hornby's RRP or my model shop just being bleedingly expensive. :?
Definatly "priced NOT to sell" though. :lol:
