Re: Wordsworth Card Kits - FREE downloads

Thanks Doghouse.

I had an idea that was the way it was assembled, Mike confirmed it for me with his latest build video. My version has some minor alterations with the windows cut out - albeit not very neat - to take clear glazing for interior lighting. Even if I say so myself, it looks good.

Re: Wordsworth Card Kits - FREE downloads

Hi Mike, I've nearly completed the low relief house from a few years ago. I am doing the one with the bay windows option, but I am confused with one part. The part of the bay windows where it says "Bay window area". Where does that fit into the overall kit? You did post some photos but bac...

Re: Wordsworth Card Kits - FREE downloads

Hi Bufferstop, thanks for reply. The last couple of kits, I have used the 1.9mm card. I checked the thickness of a Metcalfe kit and it was about 1.45mm. So it likes like I'll stick with what I have.

Your answer was similar to what I got in an email from Mike.

Thanks again.

Re: Wordsworth Card Kits - FREE downloads

Hi Mike, Further to the email I sent you a few days ago. Ooops :oops: I can't remember some of the things in the email as my email program crashed and the sent mail box is empty! I'm asking if you have photos of the Grey Stone Arched Retaining Wall construction, or even of the finished wall itself. ...

Re: Wordsworth Card Kits - FREE downloads

Hi Mike, Interesting kit. Will have to consider this one sometime down the track. Quick question re St Cuthberts Church. The wall pattern on the Lychgate walls, is it one of your regular brick papers or a special one. The reason I'm asking this is that I want to complete a wall around the church, an...

Re: Wordsworth Card Kits - FREE downloads

The GSM weight of a sheet material tells you very little about its thickness or stiffness. It's useful to know that 16 sheets of A4 is a square metre. So putting 16 A4 sheets on the post scales will tell you the GSM for a sample. 300gsm greyboard (the stuff cornflake packets are made of) is going t...

Re: Wordsworth Card Kits - FREE downloads

Hi Michael, I'm having trouble discerning the thickness of the 300 gsm cardstock in mm. I have googled it but that has multiple answers that don't all agree, so I am none the wiser. Also this applies in reverse, what is the gsm for 1mm & 2mm card. What is the thickness you use for the 300gsm car...

As I'm in Australia, I was thinking KFC, Maccas, Burger King (Happy Jacks in Australia), Pizza Hut. We don't have Wimpy in Australia.

Re: Wordsworth Card Kits - FREE downloads

I've also taken on board about addding a print ruler so you can check to ensure your printer has printed the full scale 00 size, basically its a line marked at 25mm / 50mm & 100mm That is a good idea Mike. Would it be possible to do a print ruler for H0, 87% of scale for 00 (3.5mm to the foot)....

Re: Wordsworth Card Kits - FREE downloads

Hi Mike, Sometime ago I sent you an email regarding a fast food/restaurant kit. Would it be possible to collaborate with your friend Brian on this kit. I apologise if this seems to be a bit pushy. It doesn't need to be huge in size. (I am running on HO scale) As I mentioned in my email, if copyright...

Re: Wordsworth Card Kits - FREE downloads

Hi Mike, As you may have noticed in a comment on one of your videos, I was having trouble interpreting the assembly of The Old Oak Pub. I googled "how to assemble old oak pub kit from wordsworth model railway" and it led to the this forum - :) - and I found what I, hopefully, need in the p...
