Re: Simple DC controller

Seems to work really well even though I’m not into making or knowing anything about building a controller. :D

Re: Kev,s occasional offerings

Come on then Footplate, Time to have finished by now ..... The small diorama is supposed to be a quick job. I love small scenes, the place to try ideas and here we all live off everybody's ideas. O.K sometimes they go wrong and never get finished, but it's always interesting to hear why, in the hop...

Re: Trackshack

It’s really sad, I have used trackshack numerous times. Excellent service every time they will be a big miss.

Geoff I agree, it’s best to take the time needed to complete the kits to a high standard of modelling.

Re: Kev,s occasional offerings

The existing diorama was scrapped off as it did not look right. The new one is taking shape, more to follow.

Kev,s occasional offerings

Hi with me being interested in steam locomotives and the era of coal, I thought I would model a small diorama called Trainspotter.
The base is an oak plinth 136mm x 86mm ideal for little model dioramas. The scene is set along a stretch of track with countryside along its path.

Morning my name is Kevin and I have been interested in model railways for a long time now. My preferred gauge of modelling is OO gauge but I have been tempted to try out other gauges.
I am looking forward to being part of the forum and to partake in some of the discussions..
