Re: Car Boot

Thanks for the in depth information Timbersurf. :) So I'll probably buy the Herculite 2 from maragon next time I need some powder rather than the more expensive Tuffcast from scalecast. It worked out at only 16 pence more for 5kgs of powder + pnp on the maragon site compared to only 2kgs of powder +...

Re: Car Boot

I buy herculite 2 (probably what tuffcast is) Can I just ask a question on this as I am a bit confused. :? I've just been looking on both the scalecast site and the maragon site. The scalecast site sells Herculite 2 but also sells Tuffcast. - https://www.scalecast.co.uk/store/c17/Casting_Products.h...

Re: Soldering Iron

The above sentence is slightly confusing, I think what E2E is saying is that 15W is good for electronics but may be under powered for white metal , correct me if I am wrong E2E. Sort of. More along the lines of.. to get in and out quick enough not to do damage Which a higher powered soldering iron ...

Re: Soldering Iron

Antex irons outperform Weller irons of the same wattage due to the shaft of the Weller ones losing heat to the surrounding air while the Antex haft has the metalwork of the tip fitted outside it so meaning better heating of the tip compared to the Weller tip fitted inside the shaft. I had a 15W Wel...

Re: Getting started

I have to agree with Mountain. £250 is too much.
It's here for £225 https://www.petersspares.com/hornby-r11 ... o-gauge.ir
I'd make an offer at £200 then see what the seller comes back to you with.
Thanks

Re: Backscene blending

I like Dublo's suggestion. A level / zebra crossing. :)
The two contrasting colours of black and white would distract the eye away from the join as well as hide it.

Re: Backscene blending

Hi Ewood and welcome to the forum. :)
I think that perspective looks really good. Once the white lines are lined up properly it'll make a difference.
You might need a reason for the cars to be stationary. Perhaps traffic lights permantently on red. :idea:

Re: St. Blazey's - My first layout - Stage 3 Building

I managed to pick up a hole cutting set from the boot sale this weekend for £4 so set about cutting the new holes for the wiring run this evening. I have only cut new holes in the original baseboard, leaving the rest until they have all been connected so I know where the holes can go, unlike the ori...
