Awesome Jim!



I think there is a bit of the Blue Peter going on here - "Now here is one that I made earlier" :wink:

Re: BARGAINS!

I've just bought one of the Heljan Class 128 parcel DMUs from Hattons, a well made smooth running bit of kit. Very happy with it and the price. A giveaway for the money, I have one under adaption to power a Hornby Gresley full brake body shell. (This is going to be used as a 'booster' to enable a c...

Re: Gateside and Northbridge

Re: Paint Stripping

Another liquid that removes paint is Surgical Spirit - I had been using it to remove spider poo (yes that does exist) from a Lima coach roof and loo and behold the grey paint came off and had to be resprayed :D

Re: Gateside and Northbridge

Hi all, getting back to normal now, thanks to all who passed on their best wishes. So back in the loft where spring cleaning and patching have been the order of the day. There were a couple of areas where I made minor improvements as I didn't feel it was looking great. One the Northbridge Road Bridg...

Re: And The Next Photo Will Have

I am sure that this qualifies, the excellent Burntisland Layout by the East of Scotland 4mm Group, as exhibited at Model Rail Scotland 2017 https://farm3.staticflickr.com/2022/33094196055_49eb358c08_c.jpg The model is based on Burntisland before the Forth Bridge was built, and passengers transferred...

Re: Millsend Layout - OO Gauge Sixties Midland

TimberSurf; The coal facility is on the right of the penultimate picture above, but I've never really been happy with it for a large'ish depot, you may just have me thinking about two structures to scratchbuild, it's just squeezing them into the spaces I have available. I like a challenge :lol: Mor...
