Re: Bowaters Models - 16mm Rolling Stock Kits

Thanks for the reply, I thought it would present a challenge and you seem to have mastered it. It isn't obvious from the angle of the picture so I will be pleased to see the final result.

Re: Bowaters Models - 16mm Rolling Stock Kits

I do love that coach and I think it is a wonderful addition to your range, but...... and there is always a but!..... of the 25 items you have had pointed out which needed correction, did no-one mention the distinctive rake of the curved end observation windows, which I think are an important identif...

Re: NEW FWLR LINE

Thank you Rod for the compliments, I was most concerned throughout your illness and look forward to seeing you back in the garden next year. It looks like a garden with potential for your line, nothing too grand, just a circuit and sidings would be sufficient, and easy to maintain... always an issue...

Brilliant!.... the frame detail is amazing, especially as you have left it untouched out of the printer.

Re: Workshop/shed

Great progress Rik, and well timed to be working on the inside. You must have worked out in advance where you want to site everything and fitted ample power points in strategic places.... something I couldn't do as I tend to work organically as times, and temperament, change. Interested in the high ...

Re: Workshop/shed

You wouldn't have seen the stove when you called Rik, it is in my 'Hospitality Shed' which was just a junk store at the time! I prepared it especially for guests who attend my open days due to the unpredictable weather here in Wales. It has already proved its worth during the last two events and pro...

Re: Workshop/shed

Do I notice double glazing also and are they from a caravan... Rod, glazing isn't from a caravan, although I have been a caravan technician towards the end of my career and never thought about it then! Neither are they double glazed as they are safety glass shower screens, from the time I spent as ...

Re: Time to build a railway...but where?

Yes Rod, not much sign of your railway ever being there now, however, your landlord will have no reason to complain! Having removed my structures only yesterday, I was horrified to see the demolition contractors have moved in so soon..... IMG_6785.JPG It is certainly a good job this didn't happen fo...

Re: Workshop/shed

That looks a first class job of construction Rik, one which will give you years of useful service. As you know, I have had my shed(s) in operation for some years now and many additions have been made to make life easier and more user-friendly. You might not think some are necessary or apply to you, ...
