Here is a brief picture of a Mitsubishi Colt, A little Mercades, a Volvo 940 and a Toyota Estima.


I’ve obviously missed the point here. What is this picture for?

Re: JAMES MAY'S BIG TROUBLE IN MODEL BRITAIN 06/03/19

After the first episode I wasn’t going to bother watching the second. A friend suggested I did however and it was a far better effort, much more interesting and less silly commentary. I don’t dislike James May but he really does need to say less at times: he got the balance just about right in episo...

Re: Do the increasing prices of model railways effect how much you spend?

Not in the slightest. I rarely buy new, or even r-t-r for that matter. I decided a long time ago that there was absolutely no point in buying stock that would never even come out of the box let alone be run. It’s just collecting for collecting’s sake. The pleasure that I get comes out of building or...

Re: One Of My Favourite Books.

I have recently rationalised my railway book collection down to two and a half shelves, just shy of six feet. The rubbish that I had acquired one way or another over the years was extraordinary and focus was long overdue: piles went to Oxfam, the club library or the bin. I have now what I believe I ...

Re: One Of My Favourite Books.

You are absolutely correct there Bigmet. It is worth attempting approximation in OO however because of the impact of scale on colour. It’s usually easy enough to get 5 degrees either side. The problems start (for me anyway) when old butter-yellow Hornby and Farish GWR coaches are inserted in more mo...

Re: Acrylic v. Enamel Paints – your uses/preferences.

I’m beginning to feel that for me, for certain jobs, good quality acrylics are the way forward. The emphasis has definitely got to be on good quality though.

Re: Acrylic v. Enamel Paints – your uses/preferences.

I am currently building a kit for a large LMS tank. The body colour is sprayed crimson lake but there is also a lot of matt black to apply. Because of the intricacies of the build, and the body shape, masking off to spray matt black isn't an option, consequently I am having to brush paint the black....

Recycling Triang Clerestories has long been a habit of mine. Always good to see what others do with their’s. Some your building shots are really atmospheric, too.
