The Hobby Shop Faversham are having their March Madness event, sort of a sale but rather than listing everything at once they only list nine items at a time. The current OO offering is Hornby R3439 LNER A1 2554 "Woolwinder" at £90. The only other railway items presently listed are continental; N gauge Fleischmann 717404 TEAG 01 1102 at £125,and HO Brekina 64302 DBAG 626 982 at £75.

Cheap(er) Source of Matt Lacquer.

While nosing around "The Range" (source of large sheets of Rowney Board - cheap) I found this stuff in their motoring accessories section.

https://www.therange.co.uk/motoring/cleaning-and-restoring/hycote-matt-lacquer/#170615

It is a good quality Matt Lacquer, I tried it on the Locomotive shed to take the gloss off the paper and it gave a very good finish. At £4.99 for a big tin it works out cheaper than the equivalent Humbrol offering.

I think the OO LMS vent vans are Airfix tooling but at £5.50 or £6 weathered cheap enough!

The class 73 is very tempting at £85.

Have not sold well due to colours being the wrong shade, and their are issues with poor pick-ups and circuit boards being erroneous for a dcc decoder. Bit odd how they have supplied replacement 68 bodies for the blunder on the first batch of DRS ones yet have nothing to correct the appalling colours on most of the 73s.

They made a muck up of the BR blue class 22s as well. They look awful. Green ones were spot on though in comparison.

I also see there are a few bargains here, https://www.ebay.co.uk/sch/i.html?_from ... 0&_sacat=0

In a way i am miffed, because i purchased a couple recently at a lot more £ ! But still a good buy for 0-16-5 locos, Including dcc and so on.

Another Ebay special

"Swivel Head Pin Drill Vice Hand Drill-Vise 0-2.8mm Reversible Collets DIY Craft"

Ideal for drilling holes for handrails, fixing screws etc.. This is one of the better ones with a swivelling top, so it doesn't dig into your hand and come unscrewed.

eBay item number: 152876652064

sold by "toolstechuk" for £1.49 inc. postage!
