What you said catchpoint, was going to say the same.

I’ve got one of each and saturated weighed 145g v 149 for superheated on my scales. Both have weight in the smoke box but I’ve put 3063 away ...

Well done nuggles! I've always wanted to try out casting but doubt I'll ever put the effort into it. Good job.

Hi Roachie. No idea about the decals but with regards to Humbrol I've tried a few which I've included below to compare.  

I admit I'm at a loss to remember what brown was applied to what and when.  ...

I experimented with 1mm balsa sheeting on my temporary layout a few years ago. The baseboard was MDF, not ideal I know, but the curves were pinned down on the inner rail directly to the baseboard then ...

I'm going to go against the trend here and say Gaugemaster.  There's a lot of models but my experience has been with a panel mount model UDS which is twin track with simulation and has been great.


...

I've tried 3 but that doesn't include Anyrail unfortunately. There was an Atlas one which isn't available anymore. I tried it but wasn't fond of it though I can't remember why.

Templot is a powerf ...

Thanks for that.  I thought it was interesting that the two receipts I got were out of step to the way the locos were ordered and thought it might have meant some movement. Catching up with accounting ...

Yep. I've been cautious to preorder for years but put my first lot in over the past month or so. Around the time of the Liverpool online sale and the 48 announcement I ordered four of them, two 45s, a ...

I noticed too that the wheels seem a bit bright but production models should be blackened as per description. The samples look great and I'm looking forward to grabbing a couple. But I've spent way to ...

Scrubber units were long horizontal boxes attached to some 48s' exhaust to filter/clean exhausts so they could run through city tunnels, I believe.  Just trying to remember what was said in an AMRM ar ...

You raise good points aussiealco. I'm doing some camco FO's at the moment and depending on the detail required, could be a false economy against the RTR equivalent.  Whilst I like building kits I was  ...

LOL, fair enough. So any day now hehe. I shouldn't laugh though as I'm kind of in the same boat. Rolling Eyes

What setup are you using Indefatigable?

FWIW I had no probs viewing the site on iPad, wp8 or IE8.

Further to the is he still in business question, does anyone know if he finished the Peak Hill lay ...



One new key feature is the ability to set user-defined joining tolerances and global minimum radius for all flex-tracks –
"Mixy"

That's great news mixy. I recently finished a pl ...

After : Still not totally impressed with it, needs improvement.

I'm not sure I'd do anything else to it.  It looks like you've dusted the running gear of the loco and tender ...

I'm no expert on the airbrush so only use it purely for painting kits. But I agree that a combination of methods is the best particularly as each produces different desirable effects.

Regarding cle ...

Thanks Raymond.

Geez it seems pretty obvious now. I got it out of the packaging again and noticed the pipes coming down and the four boxes correlate to the four wheels each side. I didn't have a cl ...

I finally threw some credit card details Auscision's way for the first time and I'm more than impressed. Although I've been keen to grab hold of a 73 and 422 when they were first announced I let the i ...

Well first, congrats on finishing it.  If I built it I don't think I could part with it to be honest, but good luck anyway with the sale. I've followed the build and have found your scenery especially ...

What about the butane type irons, are they a suitable alternative for kit building?

A few years back I used to have a small stubby Weller butane iron that was so handy on wiring and electronics and ...



And anyone know what happened to the 2 YouTube vids of the 73 shunting darling island ?
"anzac1959"

No idea why but the YT user "DC 4916" took them off a fair while back. A copyrig ...

Hi guys, wish I could remember to write down questions as there's a ton I could ask. Anyway here's three topics I've wondered about.
Q1 Communication between bankers and train engines during steam era ...

260g is encouraging, better than I thought it would be.

Regarding tractive effort and weight I've wondered how the newer rtr 48s (PL and TOR) would stack up owing to their size. AMRM Feb 05 review of the Bergs whitemetal kit says that kit is 450g. Whilst t ...

Roachie, you're a machine!  8) That's impressive.

I've only done a C30 tank (ex Lloyds) a few years back but from what Lloyd said, they were similar to construct to the DJH range, so I thought I'd  ...
