Linkaonline / scalecast black friday event started AN HOUR AGO! :D
https://www.scalecast.co.uk/store/c1/Fe ... ducts.html

Sadly out of the items on sale only the timber platform set is included not the brick or stone moulds for me.
Although the site does state "MORE PRODUCTS ONLINE FRIDAY, Satuday and Sunday"
Thanks

The Linka stone platform kits are now on sale too although priced higher at £17 versus £14 for the wooden set
The brick sets will I assume, join the sale either Saturday or Sunday for those that want them.
Also more items have joined the sale today as advertised.
Thanks

One for European modellers today. Some of these are huge savings on RRP.

If you happen to already have a Model Power donor locomotive suitable for one of these two kits, take a look at these....

http://www.smallbrookstudio.co.uk/commu ... 797700.jpg

http://www.smallbrookstudio.co.uk/commu ... 805595.jpg

At the time of writing they are £20 each kit. Most similar kits in the range are £25 and up.
I apologise I can't seem to copy the whole page as for some reason my tablet does not seem to do it and instead just copies the photo of the product, so to find more details the website address is

http://www.smallbrookstudio.co.uk

Click on the kits and parts section and then on the 0e 7mm narrow gauge section.

Another place to look is eBay as on eBay I've seen whole built locos for cheaper or similar prices of the donor locomotives never mind the price of the body kit they are built with. Even if one needs to give them a strip down and repaint this has to be amazing value when one comes up for sale.

I was told about this site today - https://www.aliexpress.com
We we're talking about Lego today and the someone said that they buy sets from aliexpress. They are the same models in the range albeit made by a different company but fit with proper Lego unlike some other available blocks.

I had a look and there are quite a few model railway bits and pieces although the track seems mostly 1:87 (HO?)
LaisDcc also has a shop on there.
https://www.aliexpress.com/store/297703 ... 4010b3C4nJ

Lot of electircal bits and peices including motors, LEDs, switches etc.
Thanks
