Re: Scratchbuilding of assorted structures

just out of curiosity, how long on average does it take you to complete a scratch built structure, obviously I know this will vary wildly depending on size and complexity, as I'm nearing completion of my latest attempt and it seems to have taken an absolute age to get a relatively simple building co...

Re: JAMES MAY'S BIG TROUBLE IN MODEL BRITAIN 06/03/19

here's one think I've wondered about for a while, when they get the first test models, they appear to arrive in essentially a kit form, which makes me think, I'd quite like it if these companies would also sell their RTR locos in kit form (ideally cheaper) there's probably loads of reasons why this ...

Re: Michaela’s workbench, building buildings

yes that area, plus the ELR, is my main inspiration for buildings, not sure why, just like the look of them, and layouts full of them here's where I'm up to now, with sore fingers just a test fit before I finish painting and put all the windows in https://farm8.staticflickr.com/7896/47438688171_c3ec...

Re: overly complicated point work in old photos

another example this one from lincoln central, can't find a clear real life shot, but this modeled example appears to be accurate, why is that crossing needed? https://www.rmweb.co.uk/community/uploads/monthly_09_2010/post-4624-091620500%201284653073.jpg https://www.rmweb.co.uk/community/index.php?/...

overly complicated point work in old photos

was wondering if anyone could give me an answer or reason for this, I've noticed in a lot of old photos and layouts that accurately replicate a prototype there are a lot of points where I just can't work out their reason for being there, at first I thought maybe the avoidance of facing points, but t...

Re: JAMES MAY'S BIG TROUBLE IN MODEL BRITAIN 06/03/19

We certainly didn't anticipate such a problem, the first post programme posting wasn't until 02:06 if that can be relied on. I'm glad you folk are less volatile, - or just too tired, 02:06? It beats my latest posting by at least an hour, and from the comments about it's unavailability beyond our sh...

I have never managed to achieve working semaphores, All my semaphores were Ratio kits, I would think that a simp... the semaphores on your layout look really good, and I assumed they worked, I probably wouldn't have been bothered but getting one dapol semaphore and seeing it working makes me want t...

Re: JAMES MAY'S BIG TROUBLE IN MODEL BRITAIN 06/03/19

was anyone else confused about that "professional" layout? are the builders limited to only using hornby products for those? or was its purpose to look like the kind of thing literally anyone can build? and more specifically why were they using a massive screwdriver to apply that awful loo...

00 gauge semaphores, whats best?

on my layout I'd like working semaphore signals, however I'm unsure which route to take here, so who's worked with what and whats best? I currently have a dapol LMS home and a decoder unit for it, however the cost of kitting my whole layout with these would be insane, not to mention the lack of vari...

Re: New Peco track

yes, I read it was possible on RMweb, I'd go there for more detailed advice, and I've since "curved" one point into a Y, was fairly painless, bit stressful and needs to be held in place until permanently fixed
