Re: Bamboozled

End2end, thank you. I tried your "tin everything first / blob of solder on the iron technique," and it worked a treat. Up until now, when soldering I've always wished I'd been blessed with an extra hand, but now I just need the two I've got: one hand for the work, one hand for the iron. S...

Re: Hermione Isle- an overlooked principality

Hi ALex, at one time I would automatically have said "buy an Antex iron if you want quality" these days they seem to be just a different badge as "no name" ones from the same factory in China. If quality is your path, you can't go wrong with WELLER ... mine has been used constsa...

Re: Hermione Isle- an overlooked principality

Be careful with cheap soldering irons. Some are not hot enough and some, the nib disintegrates.

Re: St. Blazey's - My first layout

Thanks for your kind comments carnehan. Yes it can be somewhat frustrating but the reality is, If I could run trains at the moment I don't think so much work would get done for the layout :lol: , so in a way it is actually helping the end product although there are somethings I cannot tackle at the ...

Re: St. Blazey's - My first layout

I have now finished the wagon loads. I had to touch up a little here and there using neat PVA and a couple of small bits of coal / gravel etc. Stupidly before they were dry I turned over one of the coal wagons and the PVA/water mix came running out in a grey colour and spilt over the lime and one of...

Re: Spray Matt Varnish - alternatives to Humbrol

I've found with rattle cans it's best to hold them upside down and spray until it is clear once you have finished using it each time.
Hope it helps.

Re: DCC or DC? What to do, what to do.

Marcus do they have to be the £20 decoders? Just that i've seen Lenz New Standard + 8 Pin NEM 652 DCC Decoders for £17.25 + p&p (cheapest I have found so far), not a great saving , but a saving none the less for a good 8 pin decoder, especially if you buy more than 1 at a time saving on the p&am...

Re: Station access tickets

Well let's hope other companies take heed of some of the model railway compaines and bring manufacturing back to Britain so we can have some JOBS. Remember those? :shock: :D

Re: DCC or DC? What to do, what to do.

I will point out the obvious here.... If you own 36 loco's :shock: :mrgreen: , I think you'd know how to install decoders yourself reducing a little of the cost, and of course, not all decoders cost £34. Still a large outlay though and if there's one thing that most hobbies require, it is the large ...
