Re: Static Grass Problems

colour matching paints

it has occurred that you get quite a few requesting what paint will be suitable for certain liveries , so I decided I'd post a helpful little asset that could perhaps be pinned by mods for everyones use

Re: New bi-weekly magazine with OO models steam loco's.

select establishments they aren't though and there is no north or south , there is good and bad in both locations , I live out of the bad areas but don't pretend the south is pure because that couldn't be further from the truth !!

Re: What is a new product?

For me 'new' implies something, be it an item of rolling stock or a locomotive, which has not been available before. Different liveries/numbers don't count in my book.
