  1. Hi I used the silver paint that Maplin used to sell as soldering will probably destroy the wheel. Something like this should do https://www.amazon.co.uk/Conductive-Silver-Paint-Varnish-Electrically/dp/B00PSKQZ60/ref=asc_df_B00PSKQZ60/?tag=googshopuk-21&linkCode=df0&hvadid=226613731662&hvpos=1o4&hvnetw=g&hvrand=12558650945185593193&hvpone=&hvptwo=&hvqmt=&hvdev=t&hvdvcmdl=&hvlocint=&hvlocphy=1006892&hvtargid=pla-695143186948&psc=1 I glue the resistor to the wheel and paint from the rim to one end and paint from the axle to the other end of the resistor. Hopefully the picture should explain. Cheers Paul
  2. Hi You need a resistor otherwise you would get a direct short. I use 10k for mine. Cheers Paul
  3. Hi You've got a multiply instead of divide here in bold underlined TE = 0.8 * p * D² * S * z / 2d Cheers Paul
  4. Hi Does this have any detrimental effect to any resin parts that might be attached? Cheers Paul
  5. Hi Clive Good to see you posting again. The running didn’t spoil the evening and thanks again. Cheers Paul
  6. Hi A Sturgeon is 7' 2.5" inside so the 8' 6" sleeper won't fit between the doors. Cheers Paul
  7. Hi I'll just leave this here https://www.revolutiontrains.com/pep-talk-from-revolution/ Cheers Paul
  8. Hi I found five was about my limit at once so it’s quite impressive to see you tackling eight at once. Cheers Paul
  9. Hi I usually make my steps from wire and drill holes to securely attach them. Cheers Paul
  10. Hi Charlie Thanks for the reply. Arran has been in touch. Cheers Paul
  11. Hi @arran @charliepetty Any update on whether all the orders have now shipped. I am concerned that my order may have gone astray in the post depending on the order they have been despatched in as at least one person with an order number after mine received their order a fortnight ago. Cheers Paul
  12. Hi Just a thought and might be completely irrelevant. We had a similar issue at work with our third party hosted servers that the hosting company could not find. In the end Microsoft got involved and in our case the firewall was only configured to allow 250,000 connections. Once this limit was reached our systems slowed down. The limit of 250,000 connections was the default setting and had never been changed. It was also a cumulative number so a reboot would fix it for a while as it reset the number of connections. Cheers Paul
  13. Hi The latest construction from my workbench is this Belgian diagram E423 Ferry Van in 1/148. Scratch built from plasticard, left over bits from etched kits, brass wire and strip. Painting will have to wait until the New Year as the painting area is covered with items removed to make space for Christmas decorations. Seasons greetings to all. Cheers Paul
  14. Hi My bold above. Just because its plastic doesn't mean its single use and non recyclable Cheers Paul
  15. Hi Try using the following from the address bar of your web browser. Similar to Vivian's reply above but using google. site:rmweb.co.uk T9 Cheers Paul
