Re: Southwold coach

I still need to add some compensation to the end pivoting trucks to keep the wheels in contact with the rails over my uneven trackwork - that's quite a long wheelbase - but I've got a couple of ideas as to how I might do it. I did detail my compensated 4-wheel van a couple of years ago With slight ...

I've got an old Novo 0-4-0 chassis knocking around which I'm thinking about having a go at building a scratchbuilt, steam outline body for. Perhaps a sadd...

Re: Scratchbuilding a 'Rye & Camber' style coach

A couple of answers for you. Painting styrene is simple, personaly I use Halfords grey rattle can primer. They do a plastic primer in spray can as well, although I've never noticed any real difference myself. For your external vertical palnking, again personaly I wouldn't do it as you suggest. It's ...

Re: 3 D Printing 16mm models

The bent leg needs to touch the footplate and the arms need moving. It is interesting to see how easy it is to make figures which are properly proportioned and the correct height this way. You are doing well, congrats. FWIW, when I did my diesel driver figure ( the one which both Steve and I printe...

Re: IMPORTANT!!! - Transferring GRF ownership to myself

Just to add that even members can't see everything unless they login.
That includes this thread and various others to do with the forum transfer and funding. Which in turn quite probably means that a lot of people have no idea what is going on!
