Re: IP Coach Kits

I have recently made a Timpdon coach and can say that the kit quality is excellent. The real glass for the windows is a nice touch. And they are well designed too. All in all I can't fault their kit. Same for Brandbright. Although I have only made one of each. I have made a few IP Engineering ones, ...

mixed parcels and passengers

I have decided to make a passenger momentum wagon (there is a thread on here about freight ones I and others have made). And so need a prototype of a carriage that is mixed parcels or similar and passengers. In other words, it needs to be a compartment carriage kit, with some windows replaced by non...

Enamel signs

Back 2 Bay 6 used to sell nice and large enamel signs on a metal backing. Does anyone know where to get them from now please? All I can find are plastic ones that fade rapidly outside.

At the risk of seeming like I know what I am talking about (a dangerous idea!!) I work as a long haul pilot flying trans atlantic.

lamps

Does anyone know of somewhere in the UK that supply UK style loco lamps. I am not fussed if they work or not, but scale to a Roundhouse Silver Lady and reasonably detailed. Preferably not a kit either. Many thanks.

bromley craft products

I have just found Bromley Craft Products realistic brick compound. It looks great, does anyone have any experience of this product, and especialy whether it can be weatherproofed? Thanks
