  1. Hi In the past I’ve made vee hangers from wire and fabricated the brake levers from left over etches. For my next project I’m considering doing an etch as there are quite a few items I need that aren’t available. It would be useful if some of the etches available in 4mm for things like this were shrunk down to N. I’m guessing there are very few people who would need them so not commercially viable. Cheers Paul
  2. Hi I would agree they were excellent products. The website does mention getting the n signals back into production but there hasn’t been an update since January of this year on whether they will or not. Cheers Paul
  3. Hi Ordered some transfers including some custom 3D printed nameplates on Wednesday, arrived today. Excellent service. Cheers Paul
  4. Hi Hence my comment that it might not be screwed in fully. Cheers Paul
  5. Hi I had a similar issue with a cheap airbrush and found that the nozzle wasn’t fully screwed in preventing the outer piece from seating properly. The symptom was lack of air flow. Removing the outer end piece gave proper airflow like you are getting. Cheers Paul
  6. Hi Would the NGS kit 37 be a suitable starting point for your wagon? https://www.ngsjoin.com/kit-37-tta-chemical-tanker-ngsk0370-783-p.asp Cheers Paul
  7. Hi I’ve tried the IPA approach and it didn’t really touch the factory finish on the Farish class 24 I was trying to strip. Did remove the numbers though so maybe a method for renumbering without a full respray. Cheers Paul
  8. Hi Ah I didn’t try that. The only other place I was aware of (edm models) no longer lists it. Cheers Paul
  9. Hi Seems to still be available here https://www.modeldisplayproducts.co.uk/testors-dullcote Cheers Paul
  10. Hi I think you may have hit the nail on the head. I often see the comments I don’t have the skill to do xyz but then the person making the comment won’t spend any time gaining said skill. I’ve been building models for the last fifty years and I am still learning new skills / ways of doing things. I also think people expect quick results and if I’ve learnt anything it’s that things take time. Some of my projects have taken ten years to come to fruition but for me that’s part of the enjoyment. Cheers Paul
  11. Hi Does anyone have the old Taylor Precision Models 1824 assorted brake wheel etch in their gloatbox and hasn’t used the large six spoke wheels (on the left in the image below)? Note the large wheels in the later 1824a etch are larger than these. If so would it be possible to purchase these below from you. Cheers Paul
  12. Hi Seems a bit daft when there is already a thread dedicated to bridges and the hitting thereof. Cheers Paul
  13. Hi Like most others on here I only knew Gordon via the forum but my thoughts are with his friends and family. Cheers Paul
  14. Hi Any news on when the new Woodhead book will be available? Cheers Paul
  15. Hi That would make more sense. Cheers Paul
