Re: Re numbering locos OO gauge

Fox do smokebox numbers either transfer or etched, for cab I use HMRS as I just find them easier to use, and present better as theres no backing film.

Re: Horsted Keynes OO, - Captain Baxter Kit available.

I made the longish journey back to Buckinghamshire, first to attend Railex 2018 at Stoke Mandeville Stadium, which was ok, wasn't the best one I have been to in recent years... but was better than the one we have on the island... Secondly of course was to check on the layout... and seeing as it was ...

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

Progress has been going well on painting the 3D print kit, I managed to get enough out my Phoenix paint to paint the coach, and I have now lined out the body as well, and ready for a bit of Varnish. I still have to finish the inside of the coach and paint every single seat and fit them inside, along...

Re: BMR Workbench.

Hi Steve, thank you, yes I have a dvd of I think it's Tony Wright's right track series where he's basically building and painting and has a bit with Ian demonstrating what he does, he has a lot more experience than I and I have only used it a couple of times the bow pen... I know what you mean by us...

Re: BMR Workbench.

The LBSC Directors saloon is now looking a bit more like a coach, sadly much lining now lies ahead... so depressing... so this is either transfers or Bow pen, not quite decided yet, it must be lined out in Gold... and a lot of it. The LNWR observation car has also entered paint, and now awaiting the...

Re: Mainly 3D Printed LNER Locomotives in N gauge

Wonderful CAD work there Steve, I picked up a magazine (BRM) a couple of days ago, and there was an article of some similar looking wagons, loco's by a guy called Steve.... a know there are many people called Steve, but would I be right in assuming it could possibly be yourself?

I hope you can get all sorted.


Not for a couple of years at least, Parts for things are expensive, like chassis ect... so not something I will probably be doing for sometime.

Re: BMR Workbench.

I see, for us its very much the other way around... we tried skills evenings, so weathering, loco kits, buildings scenery... but it just died out an no one bothered, it was very much older generation not wanting to do any how too's Sadly for me over 30 now, and the younger generation are just not in...

Re: BMR Workbench.

Thanks for the comment, yes patients is key but also doing some but not too much in a day, I spend an hour or 2 per day on this and the LNWR coach also, both at the painting and priming stage. Balance is really key not to get fed up with it or you spend so long in it that something will go wrong whe...

Finishing well its just reached that point, first part is clean it, then a ...

Re: Horsted Keynes OO, - Captain Baxter Kit available.

It's been a little while, but some new arrivals on the layout have finally made it to the layout. Firstly the Birdcage set from Bachmann, although the Bluebell only has 1x 60ft Brake Lav I thought I would go for a complete set in the SECR livery which will look good behind any SECR model locomotive....
