Re: Southern Valley Railway- Going Underground

The class 20 is the Lima model of "Sir John Betjeman" in a steam on the met metropolitan livery, the model was released in this livery and all I have done is DCC it. I do have other underground stuff not on the layout, ironically stored in a box beneath the layout. I have a ever ready 4 ca...

Re: SVR Workbench-3D Printed Metropolitan BTH Loco

Matt I do not know the timescale of when it will be released as a kit but I will be handing it over to Phil Radley at the Acton open day and however long it takes to get the kit sorted after that will affect how long before the kit is available. Also I would like to add that though I will get parts ...

Re: SVR Workbench-3D Printed Metropolitan BTH Loco

The sketchup file type is not immediately compatible you need to export it as a COALLDA file (*.dae) and then this can be uploaded directly into shapeways.
Dont worry about asking questions its good to know someone is interested.

Re: SVR Workbench-3D Printed Metropolitan BTH Loco

The cost I would prefer not to mention though the Radley Models resin body should cost about a third of the cost of a printed one hence why it is being made as a kit. The material was Frosted ultra detail(useful for the vents and details but for a steam loco could be a more basic material especially...

Re: SVR Workbench-3D Printed Metropolitan BTH Loco

As can be seen on my layout thread I have had a change of theme and so the type of project on my workbench must also change, here is my most recent project. After seeing other people having a go at 3D printing I decided I wanted to try. I wanted to Try something fairly simple shaped to start with so...

Re: Southern Valley Railway- Going Underground

I know its been a long time since the last layout update but the layout has changed quite a bit in terms of design and of the rolling stock. I have always liked London Underground but due to lack of availability of models have never been able to pursue this. Recently I have been fortunate enough to ...

Decoder For Black Beetle

I need to DCC fit a Black beetle motor, I can see the wires connecting from pickups to the motor which I need to intercept but I was wondering what type of decoder is recommended for these motor bogies.

Re: Dean Sidings kits list ?

I have a copy of his spring 2012 catalogue, picked from and exhibition, which I could scan and email to you if you want (let me know via PM). Unfortunately he doesn't have a website and the catalogue only has his address and no phone number as otherwise you could find out that way.

Sorry for not mentioning, they are for an electric loco(I would like to keep the locos identity a mystery for now if thats ok, though I will post an explanation at a later date).

touching up paintwork

I have some old second hand kit built models. They have been painted well(much better than I would have) but have at some point during their lifetime had some chips to the paintwork and is down the the base metal. Is there any way for me to touch up the paintwork?

Re: BR/SR Steam Loco Noddy Workbench

Looking good, I have considered that kit myself but I am too much of a cheapskate and I have a big que of projects to work through anyway. Despite not being a perfect model it is pretty close and to most will look like the the H Class. And I would think it is easier to make than a brass kit and is c...

Re: SVR Workbench-Bluebell P Class Finished, hopefully

I always think I should have taken more photos as it would have made it easier to describe the chipping process to you, oh well. From the sound of things you have lots of really nice trains lined up and so I for one would be interested in seeing you make a thread. I look forward to seeing your progr...

Re: SVR Workbench-Bluebell P Class Finished, hopefully

As far as I am aware the socket is specific to the decoder with different ones for each size decoder. I would assume that Gaugemaster sell the replacement NEM 8 pin socket to plastic decoder socket. This was the only time I have not used the standard hornby or bachmann decoders so it may be worth yo...
