Re: Very simple question,

Agree the above- a thin smear of PVA works very well. It dries quickly but not so quickly that small adjustments cannot be made. Obviously though, other adhesives will work. Incidentally, PVA dries clear. You’ll also need a scalpel and a supply of sharp blades (or an equivalent sharp modelling knife...

Re: New Member from Guernsey

Just a small correction Mountain, whilst the Triang American-outline locos and rolling stock were exported to the US (after having been launched here as the ‘Transcontinental’ range), they were manufactured to a OO rather than an HO scale.

Re: Dad-1 - Workbench - West Bay Wagon Works

It’s a general club issue I’m afraid Geoff. Never any offers to help on several layouts under construction, small teams slaving away against a general clamour of ‘when can we run our stock?’.

Re: Latest kit build

Thanks both for your comments - appreciated

I did think about a low coal load Mountain but the detailing within the bunker is quite poor and a full load will cover it cosmetically. It's drying out now and will probably be safe to pick up in about 12-15 hours.

Latest kit build

This is a very old Wills Finecast kit for an ex-Midland 2000 Class 0-6-4 tank, perhaps better known as a 'Flat Iron'. The kit consisted of body parts [in white-metal] only and the chassis I built up quite traditionally from brass plates and spacers [made up from the front and rear half-inch of an ol...

Re: Michaela’s workbench, building buildings

Your buildings are really rather good. I like the Black Five finish too, good to see a tender that hasn’t just had its interior sprayed matt back. The rusty in-use effect works well.

Re: Ex-Cambrian Railways Composite coach

Thanks for the VCT link. I had read - somewhere - that it had actually run routinely on the ex-Cambrian Railways in passenger revenue after the grouping. Looks as though that information was incorrect.

Re: Ex-Cambrian Railways Composite coach

Difficult to assess the heritage of that coach Geoff, clearly much altered and cut about. Even has a TPO look Geoff, but it clearly isn’t. Bufferstop, I had rejected those four wheelers out of hand, but they might be worth a second look having seen that conversion. An absolute pile of stuff to atten...

Here is a brief picture of a Mitsubishi Colt, A little Mercades, a Volvo 940 and a Toyota Estima.


I’ve obviously missed the point here. What is this picture for?

Re: JAMES MAY'S BIG TROUBLE IN MODEL BRITAIN 06/03/19

After the first episode I wasn’t going to bother watching the second. A friend suggested I did however and it was a far better effort, much more interesting and less silly commentary. I don’t dislike James May but he really does need to say less at times: he got the balance just about right in episo...

Re: Do the increasing prices of model railways effect how much you spend?

Not in the slightest. I rarely buy new, or even r-t-r for that matter. I decided a long time ago that there was absolutely no point in buying stock that would never even come out of the box let alone be run. It’s just collecting for collecting’s sake. The pleasure that I get comes out of building or...
