Re: Paint Colours

Hi Guys, looking for some help with finding the right colour match for Talyllyn coaching stock red/tan. The closest I can get for the tan is Revell SM382 and I'm quite happy with that, but I can't seem to find what is, to my eyes, the right red. Any suggestions? Don't mind if it is brush or spray pa...

So, what are people going to do without Brandbright?

Centre buffer couplings, quality wheels, axle guards etc... where do future supplies come from? I, personally, don't like the IP or Accucraft solutions....

Brandbright will be a big miss.

Nice loco but I'm disappointed that once again the Basic Series has been overlooked. Seems like a competition for the biggest loco between RH and Accucraft at the moment.

In the current climate more affordable locos would be appreciated.

These are quite superb. Was there any decision on making them commercially available?

Well, I contacted Peter Angus today regarding a Corris No. 3 but the likelihood of getting one seems to be quite remote :( I can be added to his list of orders but the wait is at least three years! I had thought that as these would be using more standard parts that they might be batch built but that...

I did wonder about them which is why I haven't placed an order before now. There was something that I couldn't quite put my finger on. The other thing is that you rarely if ever see Wrightscale locos running - certainly not the pre-cursor of No 4, the Tattoo. I'm going to contact Peter Angus to see ...

I saw the Edward Thomas and really wanted one but again limited availability! That was built 'with' Geoff Munday, wasn't it? Well, you've put me off the Wrightscale No 4 which is disappointing but I trust fully your judgement. So if you do manage to persuade your dad, and there's one available, I'll...

Yes, hi Matt. My Sir Haydn still runs beautifully (complete with driver figure, of course!!) Didn't know that Peter Angus was building them. Is that with a 'steam motor'? What are they like? Rough idea of price? I have quite a few items of the Atropos Corris range (building a coach at the moment, be...

As for corris 1,2and3 I know 2 people that make them! Your dad being one of them - I have one of his locos which co-incidentally carries the same name as yours on here! And the other person building, if you can? Any spaces in the order books? I know that Steve's are very limited editions and I can'...

and the wrightscale ones only make good mantle peice orniments, unless your willing to take it apart and start again. They are worse runners than rocket mamods! That's an interesting statement as I was looking at ordering one!! Just out of interest have you experience of one? I'd be interested in y...
