Re: Gauge One Rolling Stock in 1:32 scale

Those are very impressive! I don't know much about the detail of SR carriages, but those look spot on. I like 'em all, but especially the vans, which are so distinctively Southern...

All the best,

Re: The Potters Orchid Railway

What an amazing transformation compared to pictures of the site from a year or so ago! How does it compare to the vision you had in your mind's eye back when you started - a close match, or has it changed as it's gone along? # I'm very much looking forward to seeing some trains in that wonderful lan...

Re: 3 D Printing 16mm models

That is good to know, but I would like to try and get my own printer because that's the whole point of doing 3D printing isn't, to get what you want cheaper than you can buy online or on the high street. Maybe not the whole point - personally I'm interested in learning this stuff because it should ...

Re: Glass glazing for rolling stock kits

I go for 1.5mm acrylic too, but that's largely because I make droplights from three layers of 0.5mm ply, so the glazing of the rest of the carriage has to match. The droplights have to have 0.5mm acrylic for glazing of course, but are small and well braced, so I don't think flexing's a problem. Inte...

Hi all, It looks like we're pretty unanimous in our gratitude to Steve and desire to see him keep up Tom's good work. In the interest of transparency and fairness, but bearing in mind the need to keep things moving, let's say that the poll will close today at 7pm GMT. Speak now, or forever hold your...

Re: Even I wouldn't choose this paint scheme

Mind you, when it's that size you could paint it matt Battleship Grey and it still wouldn't blend unobtrusively into the background!

I enjoyed the captions - particularly the very apt description of the loco as a "steam beast"...

Re: TVT - Mihirung, the Demon Duck

That really does look the business with those carriages, a lovely model. It reminds me of the RH&DR diesels, which I've always thought were rather handsome.

All the best,

What I would like to see is THIS forum continue, with the site and domain name transferred, along with any other administration to a new owner, and nothing being lost.
I think that's what we'd all prefer, and an option is being explored - we just need to keep our fingers crossed...

Re: The G&DLR begins.

Hello. There's some lovely modelling going on here! Having recently made a signal box and interior myself I know how much work is involved - yours is fantastic! Love the water tower too. Sorry to hear you've had such a difficult time lately - I hope the modelling and spending time with your son are ...

Japanese logging line with great railcar...

Another random Youtube find (blame lockdown), this time a 2'6" Japanese logging line, that looks like a massive garden railway and features a VERY modellable railcar. I've got a Peppa Pig school bus somewhere that's almost exactly the right shape, just needs a coat of green paint and some yellow str...

This is quite fun, if anyone fancies a seven minute diversion - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Bq0aA9RZ1ls. Lots of nice vintage footage, even if relatively little actually seems to be of slip coaches... I know most of us are NG modellers, and this is an SG thing, but I'm sure I read somewhere abou...

Re: 3 D Printing 16mm models

There's some very impressive work going on here. Love the chimney stack and accurately-shaped tiles on the station building, and the tipper really captures the (pleasingly quirky) look of the real thing. Nice that they're on the same thread too - the tippers are currently at Beamish, I believe, but ...
