Re: Time to build a railway...but where?

Thanks for that information Steve, I wasn't aware of the changes. To get the ball rolling I can add pictures of my most recent build of one of Dave's (Sixteen Mills) kits. I previously mentioned purchase of two and began with details of the Horse Box, although whilst waiting for paints I have alread...

Re: Southwold stock

Hi Stephen and welcome to the Forum. As previously mentioned I did enjoy the video and love your line. I'm sorry about the reference to the loud music but I can see it was Mark who added that. On my laptop I frequently experience loud music on TV video productions, so perhaps that explains it? When ...

Re: Time to build a railway...but where?

Hi Dave and welcome to the Forum. The kit will be made to 32mm gauge and has been fitted with slightly smaller diameter wheels in steel. I like to add weight low down and felt the overall height of the wagon would fit better with my existing stock. It doesn't matter to me whether they are correct fo...

Re: Primer for 3D printed kit

Halford's Filler Primer is what I use on both wood and 3D printed surfaces. It can take a couple of coats but is brilliant stuff.

Re: Time to build a railway...but where?

That's a lovely horsebox Peter... With all your livestock wagons you could have a "County Show" themed running day in the summer, with a train for the animals and an extensive passenger service... Oh, if only!..... I remember the times we attended such show regularly throughout the year, displaying...

Re: Time to build a railway...but where?

George, the primer is just Halford's rattle can grey which I use on all of my models. Plastic primer on HIP.
There has been much discussion about Humbrol paints and not much has been favourable. All of the Citadel paints are good quality and brush extremely well.

Re: Time to build a railway...but where?

Rod, this is a link to the paints which I prefer. The 'Base' colours are ideal for brush paint as there is more pigment but can be thinned with water if required. https://www.goblingaming.co.uk/collections/paints-citadel-base The metal wheels are from my stock-box but almost certainly bought from I....

Re: Time to build a railway...but where?

The horse box is progressing nicely, all of the sections fit perfectly and form a strong basic box on which to add the panel detail and additional bolt heads if you wish. I have, and there are 246 in total! IMG_7996.JPG This shows the body with a first primer coat awaiting finish colour. I usually p...

Re: Peckforton Light Railway - Video Library

I'm a Peckforton-oholic too, and thankfully there is no cure! Careful, Rik's getting you hooked, next thing you'll be having to buy special edition DVDs with bonus footage and directors cuts! Rik has already been kind enough to use his skills with his camera to create a video of my railway....... h...

Re: The Charnwood Forest Light Railway

It's surprising how much stuff moves around, however well tamped, once water gets involved. I suspect that because your Filcris is a rigid construction ( Without expansion gaps, presumably?), once one section moves, it puts undesigned strains on everything else, and that then continues to "wriggle"...

Re: Time to build a railway...but where?

Well, it's kit time again. I'm supposed to be decorating the kitchen, but there are more important things to do! Two laser-cut MDF kits arrived this morning from David at M.Prints, http://www.sixteenmills.co.uk/ I have made his kits previously and can highly recommend them...... IMG_7988.JPG IMG_798...

Re: Peckforton Light Railway - Video Library

An absolute pleasure to watch Rik, a real treat for the eyes. Beautifully presented with perfect photography, and the loco sound is some of the best I have heard.
Thanks for that.
