Re: Scratchbuilding a 'Rye & Camber' style coach

Hi Tom, This is how most of us do the scribing on Plasticard mate. 1. Mark 10mm lines spaced equally apart. Don't worry too much if the last one is smaller in width. Just place the smaller width at the bottom of your build all around. Also there is no need to buy expensive tools to mark the grain. J...

Re: 3 D Printing 16mm models

Thanks Trevor, that's brilliant advice. I am trying Tinkercad and I have had a go at Sketchup on my MacBook Pro, but a little bit on Sketchup. I need to start to understand all the terms for trying to draw something on both systems, then it's a case of looking at printers. Though I have been looking...

It's not for one day, I started getting them 2 weeks ago....If I unsubscribe from them, I would miss out...

Re: eBay madness

Hey, come on chaps, that price does include postage ....... The previous item mentioned on here had a postal charge of £120 so this must be a bargain..... Isn't it????? 🤔 Rik Well I'm thinking of buying this one AND Tony's. And then breaking the chimney off Tony's one so I've got matching pair... M...

Re: eBay madness

A case of ebay madness from another perspective..... I recently offered an item for auction, which 'sold' to a prospective buyer with a feedback score of 7 at 100%. However, when he failed to complete the transaction I looked at his feedback reports and 4 of them said he is not trustworthy, should ...

Re: 3 D Printing 16mm models

That horse is very impressive and really looks the part. :thumbright: Horses that usually pulled carts did have rough hair on their bodies Trevor. My Dad always kept it longer on their bodies, he said it helped to reduce the rubbing of the tack on the horse. His horses never had any trouble that cam...
