Re: Gauge Widening

Welcome to the forum.

I have no idea about Cliff Barkers stuff either, I'm afraid. As Phil said, you could ask Cliff, or failing that SVLR Andrew has built his railway with Cliff's stuff and he'll know your answer if anyone on here does.

Re: Driver and Fireman with shovel

Sorry, I wasn't having a moan, I just thought it might be helpful to see my results. I agree that 'flash' connection isn't a problem,it came off easily in the fdm version, I just didnt bother on the resin one and thought I'd point it out. I'm not sure that my raggedy fdm results indicate mesh proble...

Re: Resin question

Makes sense to stack up the prints and do them in batches, but then you do a lot more printing than me, with your loco prints etc. I think I'm going to reserve what I've got left in this bottle for doing larger/more robust prints with somewhat less critical fine detail than number plates. Then, goin...

Re: Servo Controlled Points

You could do a kind of half and half. Position your servos in a shed, ballast bin, pile of sleepers or whatever, a short distance from the point , working it with rodding from there and dummy rodding running back to the signal box. This shows one of my servos under a dummy pile of old sleepers ( you...

Re: Resin question

Almost exactly 3 months to the day since I first opened it. It has subsequently been used about half a dozen times, but of course that also means half a dozen lots of 'used' resin being returned to the bottle. In my own mind I strongly suspect that that is the problem. I'm guessing from your respons...

Re: Resin question

Yes, I do give it a good shake.
Anyway, I would assume that if there is any tendancy for it to settle, the thicker stuff would be at the bottom so I'd expect it to be initially thinner when pouring?

Re: Servo Controlled Points

That looks real good in the video. I was considering running control rods similar to what is in the video but thought it may be a bit much to stretch them up to 12 Feet long. Out of curiosity and because they may come back into play what did you use for the control rods? I used 2mm( I think) brass ...

Resin question

I think I have problem and I think I know the answer, but I'm interested any comments/ideas anyone may have? I used my resin printer yesterday and today, for the first time for a couple of months, and I keep having the same problem which I hadn't seen before. As I poured the resin into the vat I had...

Hornby Magazine - Building the Festiniog

I just chanced across this video, which has shots of the Festiniog, plus modelling tips and a shot of a disel hauled garden railway. I haven't watched all of it but there may be bits of interest to some folks.

Re: (WH)WHR Rolling Stock

Good idea if there isn't enough room underneath between the solebars.
Coming on well.
