Excellent speedy service from Tgauge.co.uk
Mmm what to do with the 21M chassis?
I really like the idea of being able to buy clear bodied items to do with what we like, makes kit bashing a little more straight forward.

Now if you can get hold of the Class 103 first generation locos you can shorten that!
The adjustable chassis is non-motorised purely for adapting for coaches wagons etc.
Oh and Ian, does there seem to be much scope for shortening that 21m motorised chassis?
edit: ah, adjustable chassis forthcoming it seems.

The vinyls look great as they are!
Any chance you could do some more red/white for Tgauge as he has sold out!
Any chance of a Class 67 type of overlay, don't know if thats possible or not though.
I just wish the cutting machine could get fine enough to do the windows in T - alas, not yet...

could coach sides be printed onto a transparent medium and the windows left clear?
Yes but you either need a high end digital print or screen printing. High end digital print is doable IFF you can find a printer willing to do odd sheets, which so far I haven't.
Adam - you can cut out the main window areas and fake the drop lights which is a start

On the bright side its much easier to do roof vents in T scale than N
I'm not sure etched is as useful as it might be - I etched a Siphon in T scale in 1 thou stainless overlays + 2 thou main but while you can etch it you can't paint it and you can't actually see all the relief more than about 6 inches away !

(And 100 identical A4 sheets of carriage sides in T scale is 10,000 coaches or so)
