  1. I do 4mm so have no axe to grind. I can't see this on the orginal press release on Apr20? Might be a good idea to make clear any bits and bobs which aren't on the CAD but which ARE available?

  3. Yes I did get the recording overnight on Sky.
  4. I normally record on Sky something like 4:30am on a Friday. It's a bit annoying that both broadcasts are so close together if one goes belly up for any reason - there's not a fallback position a few days later.
  5. Hertfordshire Railtours ran the Malt and Hops railtour with 50.026+50.032 29Oct 1988. Myself and my late wife were on it. https://www.sixbellsjunction.co.uk/80s/881029hr.htm
  6. I've had a lot of pleasure over the years rehabiltating old Airfix, Mainline and occasionally Lima offerings. It also gave me a chance to try and develop weathering skills on cheap pieces. IMHO the Airfix B set coaches scrub up reasonably well. I don't think I bothered with interior colours as they should(?) look dark anyway. I did paint the window surrounds black and install Flush Glaze. I also added passengers and window decals, plus respray and weathering. Below are Airfix coaches in unlined maroon and crimson, and for comparison the latest Hornby Collett in crimson. (I couldn't bear

  9. Not sure this is madness, but very odd at least. Unfortunately I don't have access to a HIAB lorry so I'm out. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/124686794282?hash=item1d07e97e2a:g:q8YAAOSwfuBgfFBZ
  10. Has anyone tried to contact Falcon Figures recently? (Sorry can't remember the gentleman's name but he was a pleasure to deal with). As I live in west Wales I tend(ed) to but in bulk say 10-15 packs. I think my last order was 16 packs a couple of years ago. I tried the number 01428 741426 and it seems to be unobtainable. A sad loss to the hobby if he's passed on. Edit: For those that don't know he was old school. No website, just phone snail mail and cheque (or attendance at model railway shows in the SE) but an officer and a gentleman, used to send me
  11. Can't say I'd heard that before. Surely the Archers theme tune is Barwick Green from a selection of country music? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Barwick_Green Dick Barton didn't air until 1946 but the country music had been around for yonks before incorporated into a work in 1924.
