  1. Got spraying issues. I found that too many leaky connectors made spraying difficult, and the large compressor was running constantly with lots of air leak noise. So I removed them and coupled my air brush up to the small hose into the big one. Much to much pressure now, and it also let moisture through. Smaller compressor now ordered which is more controllable. Got 5 grey DMU cars to add blue to and 3 carriages so far to go maroon. Maroon or Carmine. In the end I decided by shininess!
  2. I want a chassis for my D2, but mine is a car.
  3. It has a tank. The old one just has too many leaky connectors as well. Anyway light enough to cart around
  4. After seeing Iwata prices just bought a AE186 off Ebay Worked out my leaky joiner was dropping pressures, but everything on it leaks!
  5. Getting cold and damp and I have a lot of painting to do, garage is full of junk and car spares. Currently using an Aldi special with an Iwata Neo. What would be good for spraying in house rather than outside? Thanks Martin
  6. Another grey coat tomorrow, found a couple of thin spots plus a bit which needs sanding due to sunken paint. May have to wait until weekend to blue
  7. As to the BCK not sure on the bogies but can't find my oldest platform 5 spotting book. The WR had a few XD mark 1s and I know of a SK and a FK on BR1s. But step removal appeared to line up with blue grey.
  8. I have ordered some buffers for the kits in the production line, some are bad and some are missing, the Ratio in wrong box ones are not good at all.
  9. OK I do need to clarify I cut the ends to the C83s from a drawing file supplied to me from a modeller who used MJT roofs on Comet B Set BCs Link on here https://www.scalefour.org/forum/viewtopic.php?t=4777
  10. Not much to report but Done another underfloor exhaust More door hinges DMSL reprofiled ends as too sharp Glued side frames to Lowrider Added interior partiitions Now have a week off and one job will be to paint it Also still working on wagons
  11. Back to my memories Definatly went north of New Street. MR 2A/C went up the WCML and WR 2B up to the north east. Now to the 2Bs in 70s and earlier 80s they ran in general WR non aircon airbraked trains. The BFKs were rare to be seen, but a mix of 2B TSO, 2B FK ,1 BG, 1 RMB, RBR or RU, 1 ex FOs was pretty common. The odd one ended up strengthening a 2DEF rake. There were a few 2C but the BSOs appeared to run with 2DEF a lot.
  12. Seen those on a link from the Tony Wright thread mentioning ex LMS hoppers. Looks like I need a 3D printer
  13. My Swindon 120 under construction
  14. Mark 1s, there were quite a few dual braked ones as well, usually buffets but also some normal stock. Mark 1 FO on the WR air braked and used as SOs with 2ABC stock. I am building sets with 1 2A 2D 2E 2F (3 TSOs next to each other 2D 2E 2F) 2C D E F 1 2A 2B 2C Apart from all Mark 1 sets, the only all same version train I have is a set of Mark 3s
  15. The first one I bought is fitted to a GRCW 119 DMU. My Swindon 120 can move under its own power one way, DMBC pushing, still have to fit buffers. Hope to blue and grey it next week. For other people I have 4 of them, 2 built with express gearing working 3 cars, I would not put more than 3 cars per motor bogie, the under construction WR Swindon Inter City (pre 126) is 6 car so getting 2 motor bogies. Will be cab ends of the IDMBTLs. Originally I was hoping to wait for the new ones as 3 at once is a bit painful on the debit card! They do like off vehicle running in. I still need to order a motor and gearbox for my 2P! However now I can produce Swindon pattern sides I am tempted by a 123 IC set.
  16. A common wagon missing from the usual type sources. I could do with some too.
  17. I chatted with Graeme about resin casting. I have seen the V2 mould. I use it for battery boxes, gad cabinets, DMU roof domes and the like. A very useful tool.
  18. Very interesting to see how good the resin and printed bodies are.
  19. I see what you mean. I think you will have to look at any pot less chimney and see what they do.
  20. I just had a look at that site, noticed they have lost the single bolster bogies off 25341 and 1811 & 25020 are not there
  21. He is a bit of a pollock. Frets over trousers but allows lying
