Re: New arrival on the GWLR

I quite like the look of this too. Think I might do something similar on one of my chassis and see how it turns out, always like a good challenge, lol. Looking forward to seeing it when you have finished your detailing. :thumbup:

Re: A bit of time in the shed

Is that how you are sending the chassis out Steve, or have I been :withstupid:..... :lol: :lol: The chassis will go out without buffer beams or foot plates, those ones will go out as full locos with radio gear and everything. There is a good picture of an 0-6-0 earlier in this thread that shows as ...

Re: A bit of time in the shed

Well yet some more time in the shed, these things are definitely breeding. A couple more people from our club are after a fully built loco and I thought it's about time that I built myself one. I will post some more pictures as time goes on :thumbup: http://www.pictures.strickson.com:8080/_data/i/up...

Danny brass spectacles

I made a couple of brass spectacles for my Danny as it did not have any when I got it. I made them from an off cut of brass which could not make much else and ended up making eight of them. Well, I don't need eight I only need two, so if anyone wants to buy a pair for their Danny, then I can do them...

I also use Vallejo acrylics and get on very very well with them for airbrushing. :thumbup:

Re: A bit of time in the shed

That's great Steve, if you could put me on your waiting list for an 0-6-0. I've sent you a PM with my personal details. Sorry, I read my PM before this, lol. Is that an 0-6-0 with Jack shaft? They come in a fixed length if it's an 0-6-0 with the jack shaft, otherwise without I have some scope to ch...

Re: A bit of time in the shed

I must admit my recovery loco I built used 2 GRS based chassis (before I started making my own) and I added a heap of steel underneath it. From memory I think it came out over 12lbs! (5.6KG) :shock: 12lbs, I'd have to strenghten my track beds, the Comfrey and Geranium only has a Light Railway licen...

That can happen if you like and quite soon. Would you prefer an 0-4-0 or an 0-6-0 with Jack shaft to start with?

Re: A bit of time in the shed

Hi Steve there would of course be no advantage in driving from the jack shaft it was just a thought. On one of the threads someone is asking for recommendations on a battery loco to use to rescue stranded steamers (pprobably with train). Would your locos be up to that sort of job, obviously with su...
