Re: Accurascale to announce UK OO loco at Warley

Thanks Jim! We're certain that when you see 'our' Class 55, there will not be anything 'fractional' about it. We're always delighted to get suggestions too, so if you would love some of those gaps filled, just let us know! Actually the only diesel I like was the class 28 because they were pretty us...

Re: Accurascale to announce UK OO loco at Warley

For years we were happy with the Hornby-Dublo model, Were we??! From what I remember of that era many people were getting hold of the Kitmaster Deltic prototype and converting it using Triang EE Type 3 bogies! The HD Deltic was an awful model, especially when compared with some of the others they m...

Re: Front pony on castle class steam loco

Sounds like you've put a three rail front bogie on a two rail loco. You need a two rail version or failing that a Wrenn one unless you want to try and put modern wheels on it.

Re: Legality or moral ethics

Some while ago I received an order which had one too many of an item. I had a little fight with my conscience before calling and telling them that I had the strangest complaint they were going to get this month :lol: The lady I spoke to thought it was funny though she didn't laugh quite so much when...

Re: More eBay nonsense...........

Fag or soldering iron? Brave but foolhardy attempt to make it seem deliberate. I continue to be amazed at the apparent complete incompetence of some modellers. Examples received are not confined to inexpensive models but also to very expensive coaches that exhibit burn marks and paint splatter from...

Re: layout plan

Paste tables are the car boot staple and without fail they are sagging and fall apart very quickly. You'd do far better with party tables like these; https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Heavy-Duty-Commercial-6FT-Table-Trestle-Camping-Picnic-Banquet-Party-Garden-New/232926423142?hash=item363b7f2866:g:4coAAOSw...

Re: Bachmann Press Statement

They all need to quit copying each other and start looking outside the box for long lived prototypes. LNWR 2-4-2T's ran well into the fifties along with some other LNWR classes. Tilbury tanks would sell too seeing as one survives plus NLR tank. There is an almost complete lack of non passenger stock...

Re: Impressive Locos Thread (For All Your Impressively Reliable Locos).

Years ago when I worked in a model shop within a job lot of very nice 2 rail H-D was an early 8f. It out performed everything else including new models at slow speed running so slow you could watch and count each revolution of the armature.

Quite frankly he's nuts. Some of the wagons he has I've bought from other sellers for sub £10 each . Openly admit he has some that'd I'd like but I'm NOT buying something at a high price that could be remade. There is a Ltd Edition Stevens of Oxford wagon which one seller wants £25 for yet another s...
