Re: Coaches for Roundhouse Models

Thanks very much. I’m new to this so maybe I am looking for the obvious, but many of the websites don’t appear to be crystal clear with the details. What would help me is the following: 1) List of what is included. 2) List of any options. 3) Picture(s) of the completed item (ideally behind/next to ...

Re: Coaches for Roundhouse Models

I am progressing with my Billy kit and I’m now starting to look at rolling stock. I will probably get another Roundhouse kit and have one with wagons and the other with coaches. I’ve been looking back through this thread to find options for coaches, and have found some really nice ones, with good r...

Re: Gauge One Rolling Stock in 1:32 scale

Those are looking very good! The Pullmans will look great behind your Schools... Your unpainted Hawksworth carriages really emphasise how modern they were - I guess they were one of the predecessors of the BR Mk 1, but with the long windows and rounded ends there a distinctly Mk 2 look going on... ...

Re: Gauge One Rolling Stock in 1:32 scale

I love how every time I want to start the commerical side of things I find yet more that fall into the 'I'd like one of those' category...... Oh well! Two different lots of Passenger Coaches have seen work. Ironically, the first one was semi commerical as they were drawn up back in 2018 as the launc...

Re: Beginners' guide to 3D printing

I've had intermittent issues with prints not sticking. But I've upped the print bed to 65C and it stays there all print. Now I have hell getting the things off at times rather than keeping them on!

Re: Beginners' guide to 3D printing

Only comment I've got on that otherwise excellent guide, you don't need adhesive 99% of the time. I don't use it at all on my 3 soon to be 4 printers. Level the bed, fine tune your bed temperatures and you'll be fine. I find the hotter the bed, the more likely your part is to stay attached.

Re: Laser cutting info for modellers

ABS and Styrene are both on the list I do not cut on my laser. At all due to Chlorine issues. I can 100% assure you I can not get wood and plastic for £1 a KG (try 2-40 a sheet!) so the maths would be vastly different. And such maths I would not want to go into as that's effectively commercial infor...

Re: Book of 16mm Accucraft Rolling Stock drawings

Now Accucraft UK have decided that they will not be producing any more RTR rolling stock I am exploring the possibility of producing a book of the drawings that my late father, Donald Pearse, did for our Accucraft UK carriages and wagons. I have been asked many times about the possibility of supply...

Re: Sierra Leone Railway coaches?

Not that I know of bar possibly a scratch aid from Wosley Works. I know I'm planning one from Bowaters (probably one of a couple of 16mm releases next year at this rate) as Gauge one coach designs allow more and more creative design work to be undertaken as new designs are proven.

Re: Gauge One Rolling Stock in 1:32 scale

Another month, another coach. This time the last Restriction 0 Maunsell Coach which brings the number to five. Just need to paint it to match the others then it can go and run at GMES at the next open day with the schools hopefully or maybe the radial. I've also drawn up the Hastings unit (not actua...

Re: Gauge 1 ‘project’

Looking great! I know I'm talking about getting a project based SR Q class built which would be nice to see but that's for next year.

Can't wait to hopefully see it in the flesh!
