Re: Coronavirus projects

Hi Tim et al. Got my plasticard gunpowder van body up to first primer stage. My first inclination is to now fill any gaps and sand smooth. But, would it be more prototypical to leave gaps as it wasn't a welded body as surely gaps would have been present between the riveted panels and strength bands....

Re: Coronavirus projects

Spent my Peterborough show money on a rivet press from Midland Railway Centre. Fantastic piece of kit. It produces excellent rivet detail and all equal size. There is a depth stop and an edge gauge (to get them all the same distance from the edge). All I have to do is get them all equidistant apart....

Re: Coronavirus projects

Hi all. Ffestiniog gunpowder van using Nigel Town's plans from the 16mm Ass'n website. Stuck the first part of the plan onto 5mm plasticard though I have cut the plan up to make it in a slightly different way.

Re: Roundhouse Fowler

Hi Jimmy. On my Roundhouse loco, the oil in the displacement lubricator gets replaced by water during a run therefore the lubricator is still relatively full at the end, but mostly of water. This needs to be removed at the end of the run by opening the plug at the base of the lubricator, or as i do,...

Hi all.
Not wanting to hijack this thread of Andrew's, if you look at the last post in my ' Slaters 2 ton slate wagon' thread there is a short Utube clip of my Baldwin running this morning.

Hi guys. My Baldwin and train so far with magnetic couplings. https://youtu.be/qvaU1HbW6eM It was tested on my local model engineers outdoor track earlier today.
