Re: 00 gauge micro layout

I think it was you who taught me that. I have bulbs ready to use with my controller. Not yet fit the bulbs. Things are not wired up yet.

Re: Soldering Iron

Others may advise more as though I have done quite some soldering I am still learning. I tend to overdo my soldering joints! Now first the question is what type of things do you want to solder? A 25 watt iron is good for electrical work as you can solder wires to rails, wires to wires etc. I would s...

Impressive Berryman. Does it have a form of overload protection?

Re: Is a final coat of Acrylic clear needed?

Most of my experience with an overcoat of varnish has been with bicycles. I have to say that I am not so fussy in regards to prestine paintwork. I mean.... To me as long as it isn't too bad I am happy as it is the mechanical ability to prevent rust or corrosion that is important, so on my bicycles I...

Re: Removing decals from a Hornby 0-4-0 steam loco

Put a new decal on top? Mind you, I do find that black is an easy colour to paint over as long as one has suitable paint. Both my black paints are glossy, and the tiny tin for model railway use I have takes about four days to dry! The other paint I have is quicker, but you need a matt paint for that.

Re: Backscene blending

It is likely to be the individual picture that you are sending is a little large. I have a smaller older tablet and as it is smaller, it takes smaller photos. I take pictures on that tablet even though the quality is not so good, and then either put them on using that tablet, or I send the photos to...

I could do with spending some time reading your site. There is a lot on there to read. It must have taken ages to write.

Re: Steam Trains to Sovereign Street

My first little Hornby 0-4-0 was my second locomotive. A GWR 101 from when they first were made by Hornby. I had it pull ten bogie coaches at speed. However, stopping it with those ten coaches before it hit the buffers...

Re: Unmarked Hornby vans

The vans are a very dark brown. The strange thing was that I was goingto repaint them but didn't get round to it. Then when I found how saught after they were, and a modeller wanted to do a swop for two 0-4-0 locos, both of us were happy as the 0-4-0 locos were passed their best in regards to their ...

Re: Getting started

Yes. To simplify things, 0 gauge, which is 7mm scale so is larger (7mm to every foot) usually has a track width of 32mm. The narrow gauge of 0 gauge uses the same width as 00 gauge track (16.5mm) for convenience, though some modellers may use a different width like 14mm depending on the prototype th...

Re: Unmarked Hornby vans

Yes. Dark brown vans were found in the Thomas range and at one time went quite cheap, hence why a few of us bought them. It is likely that someone has carefully removed the eyes. They were quite saught after by Thomas collectors. I swapped mine to a member on here.
