Hi Gents, Here's a good one. I'm after a Hornby A1/3 where the dcc socket is housed in the tender & the motor inside the locomotive main body. So far I'm aware of the following models which match what I'm looking for. R2953, R2966, R3073, R3013, R3081, R3099, R3080, R3100, R3202, R3132, R3250 Ju...

Re: Wordsworth Card Kits - FREE downloads

Hi Troopers, I've some goods news for those waiting for some different type PortaCabins, two new versions are to joint the range. I've used some artistic licence in the designs but I'm sure they'll work. Below are screen shots from the Corel Draw design. I've not built the proto types but they are b...

Re: Wordsworth - 00 Loft Layout

Hi Gents, Well I'm still doing my dilly dallying along with my layout & I've not done as much as I would like but I take progress as progress no matter how much it is. So I'm still working on the diesel shed concrete base area, most of it now completed with two more final sections between the tr...

Re: Wordsworth Card Kits - FREE downloads

I have the Epson eco tank & I must say I'm over the moon with the printer. I'm still using my first full set of bottled ink & a full set comes in at around £35. My only advice would be make sure you get a model with individual ink cartridges. Those with multi tank in one a total waste of mon...

Re: Wordsworth - 00 Loft Layout

Yes the hole in the road. It's a little cameo I came up with. The hole is for some water pipe repair, I'll print off some sign like "Wordsworth water wish to apologise for....blah blah blah...." then have two men each end of the works with STOP & GO signs, maybe some road barriers to c...

Re: Wordsworth - 00 Loft Layout

Hi Troopers, I've added a few more houses & shops to the scene being created outside North Fangore TMD. I'm now ready to start work on the TMD wall behind the house & add a small delivery store keeping buildings in the form of garages / outbuildings. Ok I know it's not a load of work but jus...

Re: Wordsworth Card Kits - FREE downloads

Hi Gents, Just a very quick update, I've uploaded 2 new kits & 1 faded end wall advert kit. Both new kits use the proved & tested Country Railway cottage design so they'll fit right in with any new town scene, build as semi buildings or keep adding to form long terrace rows. The faded end wa...

Re: Wordsworth - 00 Loft Layout

Happy New Year to all. I thought I'd start the New Year off with a post showing some work I've been doing around North Fangore TMD (The Diesel shed part). I've been busy laying my packing card sheets which brings the level just right for the top covering layer of concrete paper so it just sits lovel...

Re: Wordsworth Card Kits - FREE downloads

Hi End2end, Thank you for those wagon sizes, I'll use these to formulate a processs for the triangle shaped china clay tarps. What I've done for now is a test sample of some flat English China Tarp sheets I can across whilst browsing the internet, screen shoot below. https://preview.ibb.co/eFij7G/Ch...

Re: Wordsworth Card Kits - FREE downloads

Hi End2end, The Tarps in GW should be very quick & staright forward as it's just a case of stripping back the NE Tarps I have, so will have these very soon. As for the China Clay Hoods I did some ages ago thinking like an idiot all Hornby / Bachmann wagons would be the same dimensions, but why w...

Re: Wordsworth Card Kits - FREE downloads

Some nice work with the kit building. Hope you enjoyed the build as much as I do designing them. I'm surprised how popular the older kits are as I still receive lots of emails Regards these, I have to assume it's because the are nice and quick to build. So I was thinking about a revisit to these ear...

Hi Dave,

Those photos look amazing, love how you've managed to capture that local rural look. You've managed to capture the depth with your scenery & backscene.

Keep that top work going, and thank you very much for sharing your lovely hard work.

Cheers Mike.

Re: Wordsworth Card Kits - FREE downloads

Great use of the kits there, I love the use where you've taken a basic kit then used it for something you need. All goes to show that with some individual thinking & a few simple tweaks you can obtain a look your after. Hope these photos inspire more to show & tell, they may then inspire oth...

Re: Wordsworth Card Kits - FREE downloads

Hi Gordon So glad you decided to share your versions of how you've adapted some of the Wordsworth kits. Truly top work & I hope they'll inspire others to post some of their builds. I've just finished a new railwaymans cottage with rear extensions. Made this version for my own layout to sit oppos...
