Hi Mark,

For the SEM etched primers thin with metho, and for the enamels I've good results thinning with a general purpose enamel thinner, the name of which escapes me, which i got from Bunnings.  ...

Hayden,

BGB used to do pre-painted aluminium tarps, but they may be hard to source nowadays.

I've found it's better to make my own. I use that almost translucent white paper that new shoes or cl ...

Does anyone know of a paint match for the wagons? I want to paint out the white shunters steps, etc, and unless I'm mistaken you can't brush the SEM red.

Driving past Moorooduc last Thursday morning I noticed a couple of large cranes and what appeared to be K191 in bits - certainly the boiler was out of the frames. Does anyone know if this loco being r ...

I didn't get a pic good enough to post but I had a good look at the Y that was running on Elphingstone. The model was unpainted but seemed to run well, and looked to be well detailed. The bogies appea ...

Can the kit be pre-ordered before the Box Hill exhibition or do I have to get there early o ...

Check the motor and the gearbox. I had a similar problem - the chassis would run smoothly without the loco body - as soon as I put the body on and connected the tender it ran terribly.

Here's a few photos of my layout in the early days of construction:

Has anyone had a crack at fitting Kadees to their T in lieu of the oversized knuckles they came with? If you've done it I'd be interested to know how.

Cheers

There is a decal sheet with the kit, which is where most of the decals came from. However, when I compared what was on the sheet with photos of the real thing there were a couple of things that were m ...

I got a couple of VLCX vans earlier this year from them. There was talk of these being followed by the VLEX van but i haven't heard anything since.
