Re: Double sided sticky pads which actually work?!

A lot of the thin stuff from pound shops is, as you say, neither super nor glue .... I remember when SG first appeared. Early 1970s, I think. It was great. It would stick anything to anything and let off smoke as it dried. When I worked in London we glued a 50p coin to the pavement outside the offi...

Note, if looking for this, Sellotape label it as 'Sellotape Hooks & Loops' here in Oz. I'd assume it would be the same in the UK.
Ah yes, "Sellotape Sticky Hook & Loop Strips" here.

Re: Double sided sticky pads which actually work?!

I had the same problem and gave up with sticky pads years ago. I now use Sellotape brand velcro. Works well, and it pulls apart and sticks back together!

Re: Dual Gauge Peco SM32 Track

Why don't companies make 3 rail more common... A Peco G45 point costs about £65. Adding the third rail would add to that cost, so they would probably be nudging £100 each. Also, instead of having only two options (left and right) there would have to be four: Left-hand third rail on left, left-hand ...

The full-size loco wears BR Loco Green (dark) and Sherwood Green (light).

Re: All Hail!

Not New Zealand but near Bill in the Powder River Basic in Wymoing, USA (between Douglas and Gilette) my wife and I were enjoying (well, I was) a warm (30degsC) and sunny June afternoon photographing the many 15,000 ton coal trains. Heading back to our hotel I mentioned "It looks a bit black over th...

And then there was this: Image

The doors lift off their hinges and can easily be swapped around. Quite why somebody thought the fuel tank needed a vented door is a mystery to me.

I've now fitted the side panels to the locomotive.
Something odd with those doors. The two with vents at the right hand end should be in positions 5 and 6, not 5 and 7.

The little vent on door 4 is for the exhaust from the cab heater.

The two sides are not mirror images of each other.

Re: Yatton Models - Vale of Ffestiniog

I absolutely agree with everything Tingewickmax wrote. Mistakes and errors happen, and the measure of the supplier concerned is not that it happened but how they deal with it. I asked above if you had contacted Yatton to at least give them a chance to correct the problems before being rubbished publ...

The loco could have been steamed at this point, but I now wait until a model is painted before steaming it, as it it difficult to remove oil residues, especially steam oil, before painting.
That is the same way that I do it.

A lovely piece of work, well done.

Well, I think many, if not most, on here would suggest that you look seriously at the Deltang range....
Many, many locomotives have been across my workbench in the last 19 years, and I have yet to encounter my first Deltang installation.
