Uhhh, Deutsch, bitte :roll:

I have ruined the wagons trying to do some more soldering, despite getting new tips. Me and soldering just don't get on :(

I was mightily annoying so I spent 10 quid of my Christmas money on 8 fluid ounces of Gorilla Glue off eBay - if I can't solder the damn thing then I'll glue it with the strongest substance known to man :P

I might buy a pillar drill too, as it should come in handy soon :idea:

It does, but ever German technician I've ever met uses 'Solder', though pronounced more like 'Zoldur', same as we do. Seems to be one of those English words that has migrated into German and stuck there.

The one I really hate is that section of American society that insists on saying 'Soder' and 'Sodering', even though there's a bloody 'L' in it. The number of training videos I had to sit through during RAF training with that pronunciation almost drove me mad.
What's that switch do? Oh! Is it supposed to smoke like that?

Its because they are ignorant asshoes :wink: We coudn't, woudn't and therefore, shoudn't have words with silent 'l's as this will only cause them more confusion. Have you heard the sow's ear they make of simple London destinations, like Leicester Square (Lee-eye-sester),Grosvenor Road (Gross-veenor) not forgetting the people who evidently keep their money at the "glau-sester" and "Wer-chester" Building Society.

I'm making a new point today.

I spent a couple of hours drawing a point out to scale first (minus check rails), and I've copied it several times. Then I'll stick it to the baseboard, using a grinder to get the rails right and then spike them all down.

Fingers crossed :)

Well it's either this or schoolwork... :)

I've got the out rails laid and filed (I cheated and used a grinder :oops: ), it's going okay 8)

I think it takes as much time and patience to scratch build as it does to kit build, you also can build it to suit your layout.

Like your ideas George keep it up, you have a good bit of inspiration for myself and others.

I only knocked the wagon down the hatch as I needed it to check the guard rail :roll:

Now one axle is bent :( Still, gives me an excuse if the point doesn't work :lol:
