Re: Hattons Pre-owned - whats your experience?

No. Now, thanks to our never elected back stabbing ex-PM - since disposed of the same way by an equally traitorous party collegue, AU GST is currently levied on all goods & services (which of course includes P&P as a service in the total) irrespective of value. It applies to personal or priv...

Re: Hattons Pre-owned - whats your experience?

Internationally, I avoid. Different if resident in the UK, but from AU airmail return costs are prohibitive & are not covered under (Hattons) return T&C. Price of most described "as new" in the case of wagons or coaches is too high for second hand. e.g. Bachmann brake van £15, now ...

Re: Brick road bridge, Superquick or Metcalfe?

Thanks, I hadn't considered Scale Scenes, I'll have a look. I do prefer plastic kits as they have more "depth" and texture, but the only plastic kit I can find is from Peco and is stone rather than brick. Scratch building one would be good but I'm struggling for time (and patience) on tha...

Re: Hornby 2019 Range Speculation Thread

This appears to be the closest thing to a Hornby 2019 thread even though its no longer only speculative now the catalogue is published and future releases illustrated in Hornby Magazine. Just wanted to express my excitement at the revelation that Hornby is releasing two new mould Bulleid coach types...

Re: Class 101

Is the venerable Hornby Class 101 is even currently available for sale new any more? Undoubtedly be some still "never run, as new in box" floating around up for sale through the usual outlets. I have a couple of them, one of which falls within in the category expressed in the preceding sen...

Re: Legality or moral ethics

At one time we were a community, however, now we are all individuals fighting to get our pound of flesh.

Re: Class 101

Are you aware that you're responding to a stale thread Mountain? Arguably archival. Last post prior to yours was January of 2010.

Re: class T9 chassis rot

Yes, but you have to admit Tim, not everyone is willing to trawl Hattons "pre-loved" listings day and night to strike the instant their price is reduced to absolute BARGAIN! :lol: That activity is something you actually enjoy. :roll: :lol: I think plenty would be willing to pay that price ...

Re: BR blue popularity

I think it's because the hobby here is populated by home grown baby boomers and retired Brits of similar age. Boomers grew up with Hornby and then Triang Trains, reading Look & Learn, Enid Blyon & W.E. Johns when steam and green were still part of life in Britain. Then we came of a certain a...

Re: Improving 'teak' finish

Yes. CA anywhere near anything after final finishing is risking aesthetic blemish to a ruined part and PITA repair. The right fresh CA, applicator, experience and exercising care can help, but ...I still detest using the stuff generally, and with the exception of etch, particularly in plastics model...
