I'd be more inclined to contact Dean Goods for a worm with the correct bore.

SEPTEMBER 2020 Photo Gallery entries here

Rik's suggestion for the theme of the next Gallery is: Railway idyll" Looking out of the window as I'm typing, all I can see is heavy grey cloud and trees bending in the stiff wind, far from idyllic but I live in hope....! :lol: So rules as before, but with one change. It hasn't really been an issue...

Re: NEW FWLR LINE

Thanks Phil. I could take the board out again and take the tunnel off and paint all of it, but it's one heck of a pig doing that. You could probably get away with just painting both ends inside as far as an arm can reach (make sure you start painting inside and work back to the tunnel mouth!!). The...

Re: 3D double diesel

Not sure how to do that. I will investigate... I think all you need to do is go to the original Thingiverse file pages and click the "Post a make" link on the RHS to upload still pics. ( I guess you'd need to do it on both the original and 'Remake' pages?) Screenshot 2020-07-03 06.06.23.png Not sur...

Re: Need some direction on a first project

Hi Jim and welcome to the forum.

I don't personally have the knowledge to answer your questions but we do have some very skilled engineers amongst the membership who I'm sure will be able to help.

Thanks for the update Mark. I must admit that I was beginning to wonder if he was on a ventilator in intensive care somewhere! :D

Re: First time scratchbuild project - Bagnall steam loco

Are the paints just not as good anymore, or not suitable for Plasticard? What are other people using? Tom, To answer this point, it isn't 'you', it's Humbrol. The early stuff we all knew and loved, stopped being made back in about 2006 when the company went bust and was bought by Hornby. They shift...

Re: Viaduct batter

As you've got it, that looks OK to me although if it were mine I think I'd make the foot slightly narrower. As Andrew says, I'm not sure there is a right or wrong, it would depend on materials i.e. brick or stone, plus the ground type and possibly the qualities of the building stone itself. The ston...

Actually Peter, I was thinking that perhaps you would have entered a shot of your dockside/harbour, which I think could have given Rik a run for his money. :D
