Re: Ken's workbench Bagnall meets hacksaw

That looks the part. Not come across the ones with the light. A novel feature for the kiddies! :D Your Fleishmann loco looks the part. What do they run like as according to Fleishmanns adverts they claimed to have superiour products that run smooth and quietly. Do they live up to their reputation? N...

Re: Llwyndrissi Halt.

Here is a comparisson between "Ruthy" and the new loco which were both built up from the same Smallbrook Studio 'Clio' body kit. "Ruthy" has had a pair of small coal bunkers added, along with home made name and number plates, and home made couplings. The handrails on Ruthy came a...

Re: Llwyndrissi Halt.

Now the chassis I want it to fit is this one so I will need to make adjustments for everything to fit. IMG_20240717_201913_kindlephoto-60746399.jpg I also have bought or been given (Depending on which item it was) a number of other items, some of which are from the well know manufacturers such as Sm...

Re: Llwyndrissi Halt.

And after much filing and fettling of parts and a test to check things fit correctly we have this... IMG_20240716_174008_kindlephoto-3352807.jpg Nothing is glued into position and the shortened Hornby chassis is yet to be tested for fit (As cab floor needs to be worked on), things will be adjusted a...

Re: Llwyndrissi Halt.

In with things I had bought from another modeller who had changed scale as he found himself stretched between too many scales and modelling projects, he included as an extra some offcuts and the occasional not so perfect casting which I looked at and thought "I can do something with that!"...

Re: Wykeham - Somewhere in the South.

Looks are odd like that. Some cars from 70 years ago look futuristic as if they have not come out yet if one didn't know what they were.

Re: Mimic panels, what's your preference?

Whatever type of panel you decide, if one can design and build a panel that a complete stranger can understand it and instantly operate the layout you have succeeded.

Re: Steam Railcars/Railmotors of the UK

You mean like this one Ro-railers-Ahead-Of-Their-Time.jpg It operated into Stratford-upon-Avon on the old cross country route, drove into the station goods yard, dropped its road wheels and carried on through the town to one of the big hotels. The arrangement of the rear passenger door looks odd, e...

Re: Figures/Personnel

Resin casting? Or white metal casting? Plastic? I would say the easiest is casting in resin, but one does need to learn a few prods with a cocktail stick to prevent bubbles. Mind you, bubbles can easily be filled. O scale is easier for making things ready for casting, but smaller scales can be done....
