Re: laying track

From what I understand, one of the ideas of DCC is NOT having to have block sections. Use a pin or ball-pein/ball-peen hammer along with a pin vice, rather than a large or claw hammer and cover each rail either side of where your hammering with some plastic or thick card. Hope it helps Thanks End2end

Re: St. Blazey's - My first layout

A month has flown by so time for a small update as nothing much has happened apart from a lot of gathering of more information before committing to laying track. I have been working on my Linka buildings still, trying different techniques but found the brick dust to not be very effective in the end....

Re: GWR vintage 4-wheelers

Re: Noch ballast glue

One quick question to all about your mix, have you/did you change the mix if you changed scale?
Only reason I ask is that with N I would imagine a more watered down mix would be more suitable than for OO.
I will be modelling OO scale.

Old catalogues for interiors idea

I have been waiting on Mike Wordsworth's new furniture pack for dealing with my interior decorating of my model houses but as yet they are not available. The other day I picked up an argos catalogue I have, looking for something else when I came across the homeware and furniture pages. On a couple o...

Re: Noch ballast glue

tried varying the ratio of PVA to water and the amount of Fairy liquid but still the glue seemed not to permeate far through the ballast From what I have come to understand is that you should use a mix of 50% PVA to 50% water with a few drops of washing up liquid. If the PVA is too thick it will no...

Re: Noch ballast glue

Welcome to the forum bodger :) To be honest this sounds like a lot of products ... once you add "scale" "gauge" "N" "OO" or "modelling" the price goes through the roof for what is essential the same product. Would it be possible that the method you u...

Re: Running in a motor?

I reckon any "SPRAY" will leave far too much lubricant on the model. From what I understand (not that much tbh), you'll need a certain oil added to the model via a "1-drop on a pin" method. I'll leave it to those that know to advise you (and me) on which oil is to be used. Thanks...
