Re: Class 08

You have lots of room with 7mm scale. I mean... Room in the chassis etc. I know that some parts of the kit are resin and I know your model is intended for display, but is there some sort of ballast needed if one is building the kit to be a functional working model? My only real inroad into 7mm scale...

Re: Mystery clockwork loco, help with I.D

I am wondering if you can remedy this with some superglue and resin powder or super glue and baking soda etc. See Youtube about the superglue and baking soda trick. It sets hard. Is ideal for small repairs.

Re: Dublo Three Rail Layout

Wow! You know the only alteration I would be tempted to do is to see if I could open up an old Hornby Dublo controller and put a modern cased controller inside it so it looks like the old controllers but inside it isn't. (Can this be done?) It will complete the 3 rail look! I have loads of HD 3 rail...

Re: Mystery clockwork loco, help with I.D

I believe I have one but it is green. It runs better then thw Triang or Hornby examples. Trying to remember who made it. It was a toy manufacturer.

(I maybe wrong in what I am thinking but I believe it is the same as the lovely light green one that I have).

Re: Custom Glazing

I have seen somewhere a liquid that can be used like a glue which forms a bubble across a window opening. Popular with model car enthusiasts I believe. I can't remember what it is called.

Re: Help with Romford type wagon wheel bushings

I am thinking along the same lines but in making my own wheels. I do recall the old ways where they used to wrap paper and use araldyte or a similar glue. An early way of insulating drive wheels of 0 gauge models to adapt them to 2 rail running was to get a mini grinding wheel or a cutting disc, and...

Re: Shortening plastic chassis

Before you start, have you considered retaining the Triang chassis and mounting the parts from the modern Hornby chassis onto them? I have done this on one of my locos and I used a cable tie or two to hold the motor in place, and I had to custom make a double sided pickup assembly from a PCB board.....

Re: Wheels for J15

What materials can 3D printers print? I know that resins can add metalic particles if one is resin casting. Can 3 D printers use a similar mix?
Failing that metal tyres on 3D printed wheels might work.
Making wheels is interesting.

Re: it Rained Today But I Managed To Take Some Pictures!

Rebuilding my freewheel in the rain! Haha. Well. I had customized it in the past but the third gear was slipping due to a slight spacing issue. I am hoping the indexing will be ok when I re-assemble it (If not I have a little lever thing to change it to friction instead of indexed gears). I have har...
