  1. I bloody love these water mixable oil paints that I've been using! I thought gouache was the wonder stuff, well it still is really, but these oils are even better and much more versatile. It's taken a while to figure out how to use them effectively, it requires a slightly different technique to gouache, but I'm now glad that I've persevered with them after the initial disappointment that I had. I've used them quite successfully, I think, on a couple of the TTA wagons that have graced the bench of late. Exhibit A: The inspiration: http://paulbartlett....b08c1#h303b08c1

  2. After purchasing an Oxford VW Golf Gti at the York show over Easter weekend, I thought that I would modify it a little into one which has been 'improved' by its owner. The first task was to dismantle the car, which was very easy thanks to the two screws, front and rear. Once I was inseide, work could begin. The first modifications were to the chassis. The hubcaps were drilled out to represent alloy wheels, and a small slice of plastic rod for the centre-nut. The moulded exhaust pipe was cut and filed away, and a new one fabricated from a spare missile from an aircraft kit (s

  3. Yeah, that would help, wouldn't it! I'm using the Winsor and Newton Artisan range, which, as far as I know, are the only ones on the market. I got mine here: http://www.artsupplies.co.uk/ for great prices and great service. The paints themselves aren't cheap, but they'll last virtually forever, a little goes a very long way indeed. I'll edit the post with some pics of the unsullied tanks shortly.

Some measurements (including thickness of plasticard, and amount of material removed) may require amendment for your particular model, and trial and error may be involved.**** *** NOTE 2 – read ALL these instruction

  6. Hi All Since building the circuit of track and starting running trains I have had problems with derailments. Upon careful examination of the track I discovered that the alighnment of track section joints was not as good as I thought. By running a train around, whist running in the locomotive I found that it derailed at a point, I then carefully examined the track near the site. I found that small blobs of solder on the inside of the rails, this is much more critical when the track radius is sub 600mm radius. These blobs were removed by applying the soldering iron to the outsi
