  1. . Phil Parker has reviewed this book on his daily blog. See here http://philsworkbench.blogspot.com/2019/11/book-review-colour-light-signalling-for.html .
  2. Hi JB If you are new to the hobby, then you won't be aware of the excellent resource from Adrian Hall called UKModelShops - not only does this list many shops, it also has a directory of exhibitions and clubs. See here http://www.ukmodelshops.co.uk/county/clubs/Essex .
  3. After building that magnificent 'shed', have you got any garden left . . ? Mike
  4. Thanks Neil Phil Traxson has confirmed that Port Wynnstay Models will also be there. With the sale of his military models and some 4mm stock, I have already got almost £500 for Macmillan and the HO locos will be on the table at the Mickleover Swapmeet at the same venue (above) on 30th November. Although a couple are complete, the others are a kit of parts as Tim had dismantled the locos to their component parts and so would make a good project for the enthusiast who likes a challenge putting things back together . . . . ! ! .
  5. S & D Models have a white metal kit of a 1930s Bedford lorry that might have survived into your chosen time period. https://www.sanddmodels.co.uk/products_43_motors.htm .
  6. Not the only theft at this show - EDM Models had a Slaters L&B Coach kit taken . . . . . . . . .
  7. Phil Please add me to the list . . . . . . . . it's about time I actually built something ! Mike
  8. For a dockyard scene, I would suggest that a model boat supplier should have what you need - such as here https://www.cornwallmodelboats.co.uk/index.html Problem is that you can't tell from the photos if it will look right - do you have any similar shops locally ? .
  9. This is an interesting listing . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . ! ! https://www.jkdconline.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&products_id=29125 Exley Oo Lner Suburban 3. Klasse Trainer 2229 Kompatibel mit Hornby Dublo. Model: golf-comedian-29125 40 Units in Stock Sitting on a fortune there with 40 Exley LNER coaches - and in another listing there are 32 Exley LMS coaches ! .
  10. Congratulations Frank - that seemed to work OK. Latest news from Paul at EDM Models is that the delayed castings have finally arrived and it looks like pre-orders for the loco kit will be sent out next week. https://www.ngtrains.com/blog/townsend-hook-late-final/ Mike .
  11. Contact Paul Martin at EDM Models. He was the only stockist for the Sound Fitted Ixion Fowler and although I don't think he has any locos left he should be able to supply what you want to either fit yourself or he will do the job for you. His new website is still work in progress and doesn't include everything yet, but I know there was a lot of information on the old site. https://ngtrains.com/shop/ .
  12. Link to the Clubs list from UKModelShops web site http://www.ukmodelshops.co.uk/county/clubs/Norfolk .
  13. Lima and Triang produced these many years ago and are much cheaper - before you dismiss them as inaccurate toys, have a look at what Ernie has done to rebuild them. There are lots of interesting hints and tips as well as details of other wagons in his topic here
  14. Chris - as a military man, you should follow the example of Arthur Wellesley, 1st Duke of Wellington who said 'Publish and be damned' - although that was in connection with stories that are unsuitable for our younger readers looking for a tale about a family of pigs going on holiday. Those who model in a senior scale may (or may not) find a few hidden messages in this story (Peppa not Wellington!). https://www.independent.co.uk/voices/rear-window-when-wellington-said-publish-and-be-damned-the-field-marshal-and-the-scarlet-woman-1430412.html .
  15. Mr Kato was in the UK in May and visited the Derby Exhibition - he was introduced to our Exhibition Manager by the representatives on the Peco stand - if only we knew then what we know now . . . . .!
