Re: Crisis point

I knew a gentleman (If he is still alive as it has been a few years since we last met, and he was an elderly man then) who has aa large Victorian town house and he said it was so jam packed with 0 gauge models that he was collecting, that he could hardly have room to get into his house. He was a sin...

Re: m.levin's layout thread

Yes. That's it. Leeds. I know someone who lives in Bramley. I've never been there though. Just the name rang a bell. I dont know many people from the Far East though so it is why that name stood out.

Re: Shall I swap scale/gauge to 0-16.5?

@Mountain, it was a very good styrene kit - the parts went together very precisely and there was nice under-carriage detail. Some little brackets were provided for Kadee couplings, but I modified them to make 'sort-of' NEM pockets for some tension lock couplings I had. Next on my list is the Slim R...

Re: phoenix precision superstrip

Is there a time limit as to how long it should be left with the stuff on the plastic body? Do you need to wash the model after in something like soapy water? Would it be safe for other materials like resin without dissolving superglue?

I think you've done well. The letter B is tiny, so I wouldn't be too concerned. It looks straight to me!

Re: Crisis point

In the past I have had large clear outs and sold a lot of items. In my late teens I put the lot of what I had for sale (Except the 3-rail items) and nearly everything GWR sold and so did green B.R. but hardly anything B.R. blue sold, so I modelled in B.R. blue instead. :)

Re: Now who should get one of these for Christmas

How many speakers can be wired into the sound card? Is there a limit? Do you need to buy a microphone to plug into it or do sound cards have microphones built in?

Re: Now who should get one of these for Christmas

I find gadgets like this to be nice but a bit unnecessary. One can simply take ones tape recorder and fill the tape with background sounds and play them under the layout. Job done!

Re: Shall I swap scale/gauge to 0-16.5?

I have never tried a Slimrails kit. What are they like to build? Are they resin? It does look good.

Re: Sir Nigel Gressley

It may need a bit of freeing up. Even when new, they took a bit of running in to free the drive wheels up a bit. I had both a Hornby and a Lima king class and as both were tender drive, they both occasionally had the loco drive wheels stop turning which looked a bit odd when going down the track. Th...

Re: First attempt with a proper layout

Things are progressing well by the look of it. :) Is a good idea to put insulated railjoiners in between both sets of crossover points. It makes sure there are no issues between the two controllers. Three sidings are a good idea. On the prototype the crossovers and the sidings would be trailing rat...
