kyle 2015: uckfield mrc show 17/18 october 2015

Posted by bcnPete , 11 October 2015 · 891 views

Afternoon,

Just a quick entry to highlight that KoL will be appearing at the Uckfield MRC show next weekend 17/18 October 2015 - Details of the show can be found here:

http://www.rmweb.co....h-october-2015/

The support structure has had approximately one metre trimmed from it now, meaning the layout is about 1500mm overall now. I have added a base at the bottom which not only allows more stability to the supports but also allows operators to see over the back scene - especially my sons.

I have also taken delivery of the new 2FS badges so have dropped on my RMWeb avatar so please come and say hello if passing by :)

Need to do some tweaks on the layout and stock between now and then before it has its first 2 day show.

Hi Pete, good luck with the exhibition, with your standards I'm sure all will go well. Interesting to see the support structure. The base looks a bit thin for standing on, but I suppose you 2mm modellers don't weigh much :-)

Thanks Mikkel - I realise now that the pic I posted was when I trimmed the boards to size - since then, I have added 2" x 1" bracing to the edges and middle of the platform which slots in over the diagonals and prevents creeping - let's just say it supports my sons weights better than mine :D

Have a good exhibition. I see you are resorting to child labour :-) Nice to get them hooked on the hobby.

Thanks Don - not sure they are hooked - they are happy to help out but I have not been pushing them...the hobby has to compete with iPhones, iPads, PS3 and TV so it's more a creative distraction at the moment ;)

Hi Pete,

I'll try and get over to Uckfield next Sunday and say hello.

Best regards,

Jeremy

Hi Pete,
I'll try and get over to Uckfield next Sunday and say hello.


Thanks Jeremy - will be good to see you...and hear more about your similar moonlighting away from modelling Kernow ;)

Good luck with the show Pete. Nice photo too.

 

Regards, Andy

Good luck with the show Pete. Nice photo too.


Thanks Andy - it's an old pic but I put it through the app 'snapseed' and applied the dramatic setting...

You could point out to them that model railway layouts have awesome graphics, and fab memory. Kyle is a good example!

Nice one Mikkel! What I would really like is to run the trains through the wi-throttle app on my iPhone...but am still a DC dinosaur at present so that one will have to be the next layout - CJM? :)

 With a purely selfish motive: Can you come a bit further west, or stay a bit further North.

Do you mean my modelling interests? :D

Thanks for your indulgence today Pete. As usual, a good quality show at Uckfield. I've posted a couple of shots of Kyle interlopers on the 2mm Layouts at exhibitions thread.
