Re: 3D Printing: Coach tops, LCDR / SECR

That SER carriage looks extremely good, a very fine finish indeed. And the blue glass finishes off the Oldburys nicely! Thanks yes I'll get round to finishing it one day, who knows maybe it will fit one of those hattons chassis. Used to be a 6 wheeler but probably use a 4 wheeler as that's what wou...

0.05 not super fine, but good results... Yes the printer has a rather robust Z rail.

Re: OO Terrier from Rails of Sheffield

I wouldn't trust Jenny's video, pretty much glossed over everything that wasn't right, coal rails, cab, pipework, smokebox number plate, after all.... she is a friend of Rails of Sheffield and well you don't want to hurt that friendship now with a bad review do we.... They come factory fitted with a...

Re: Is Cooper-Craft dead?

There is a very long topic on Cooper craft... and sadly it's not a good one... Can find that on RM web. Taking money and not delivering goods, no email or postal responses, takes money and doesn't return it. A company to avoid. We keep hearing oh I will have the machine running ... never does... som...

Re: Oxford Rail - Adams Radial.

If Dapol put the same effort into this model as they did for the NBL type 2 DE (class 21) then all will be well. Having just received Rails and Dapols terrier, it certainly worries, me... the SECR D of course is a start from scratch model, I know who the project manager is... he's good, but he's ne...

Re: Oxford Rail - Adams Radial.

Was supposed to arrive about now, on the last schedule update made before the Covid outbreak. Now, anyone's guess, the disruption could have thrown any number of obstacles in its path. Or, it may have been smartly shipped as the factory reopened, and will be on sale in the UK shortly. We simply don...

The might have been air smoothed Schools looks great, it is an example of the generation of steam locos we never got to see. The American streamlined 4-4-0s of the thirties and fourties were great looking locos that set a style statement that the first generation diesels had to live up to. Thanks y...

Re: BMR Workbench.

That is exquisite Matt. I think the barely visible print lines really enhance the wood effect. Likewise the oldburys. I presume the lining is with a bowpen? Extremely neat anyhow. Thanks, the Oldburys were lined with a bow pen... The GNR Directors Saloon I actually can't remember... Lol 8t was done...

Re: RT Models

He's a very busy chap, your orders safe don't worry I have waited longer in the past he works away quite often or sometimes delays are due to being out of an item. He's more active on RM web, I have ordered recently he's still going.
