  1. Basically echoing what others have said. It was really good to be out exhibiting again and be able to properly meet up with many faces we had not seen for a long time. As usual, Adrian and his team put on a great show and we were royally looked after. After a sticky opening hour (mainly down to rusty operators!) the layout performed very well and we had a great time sending trains between Padstow, Wadebridge and beyond. I took very few snaps other than a couple of SDJR interlopers - my No.45 which somehow took a wrong turn at Templecombe and Gordon Gravett's beautiful model of Radstock. Jerry
  2. What a strange post. You could pay a fee for Gold membership but not bother look at any of the mags - does that work for you! Jerry
  3. We are there with John Greenwood's Wadebridge and Padstow, looking forward to being out and about again, it's been a long time. Cheers Jerry
  4. Thats lovely, I do like the two tone livery on Midland tanks - very attractive. heres my interpretation of the top of the water tower at Bath - I just went with a walkway. I suspect the hut on yours is bigger than my tower! Jerry
  5. New Bond film followed by a curry for wife Kim's birthday last night - you cant buy class!

    No spoilers but classic Bond, great stunts and car chases, humour and pathos and the bad guy has his own island - what's not to like!!

      Well, I thought you could at least have treated her to a ticket for a game at Old Trafford !

      That's good to hear. It opens on 11/11 down here - I hope...

  6. I wouldn't normally comment on my own issue but I'm really pleased that Moretonhamstead is receiving such a positive response. As others have said, not only is it a stunning piece of modelling but the write up is superb. From an editors point of view it was a dream - Pete did his own photography and I barely had to touch the article, it was already funny, informative and thought provoking and for those of a certain age (myself included) ticked so many boxes in both the hobby and wider culture generally. Needless to say I've already asked him to chronicle any future projects! Jerry
  7. Hi Grahame, I have a tin with all sorts of leftover bits of wagon etches. If you can post a picture of the wagon you are modlling with the sort of bits you want I can probably find something suitable. Jerry
  8. If the chassis etch is an Association one designed by Higgs/Hunt/Jones et el then there should be no problem regarding the spacing of rods and bearing centres. I've erected numerous of them and they have always been spot on. Etching isn't an exact science. The holes can vary slightly in size (though not centres) which is why they tend to be etched under size so they can be reamed to be an exact fit to the bearing. The most likely cause of issues in this case is if bearing holes are reamed over size which results in a sloppy fit and the matching centres being lost. Jerry
  9. Beautiful work as ever John. It's good to see I'm not the only one to use left over bits of wagon etches - a wonderful resource - more fool anyone who just throws them away! Jerry
  10. Great to see you have started a thread on this fantastic project Laurie. Look forward to further updates, Jerry
  11. Its probably not much help to say that Ive never had much of a problem with quartering and have always done it by eye. Nigel and the late Paul Martin organised a workshop (scarily nine years ago!) which I participated in and my method of quartering starts at around 47 minutes. Jerry
  12. That's very kind many thinks, your red Kirtley in particular is a thing of beauty. My self imposed discipline on RMWeb is to rarely leave the 2mm area but this is one of the few threads I follow, great stuff. jerry
  13. I haven’t got many books on the V2s but I suspect there weren’t many that ran on a track gauge of four feet one and a half inches so I think it pays not to get too precious :-) jerry
  14. Thats lovely Mike, I do like a good, rugged eight coupled freight loco Jerry
