  1. I have a small problem. I have a digital subscription and the video cannot be seen in full screen as this mode has been turned off (it's not active on my screen). What's the problem? Cheers Andreas
  2. Actually the site states that no batteries can be shipped as a standa alone with RM....
  3. Hi Chris, this looks very promising system and I would also consider it for my 0 gauge stuff.....the problem that Protocab has is that they do not ship outside the UK. Its a pitty that the UK has so many absurd health and safety regulations that obstruct almost every part of life.... Cheers Andreas
  4. The parkside catalogue can be downloaded from the respective Peco webpage :-)
  5. At this point I will give my praise on the service of the new owners of Cambrian Models. I ordered on Saturday via webshop and the package arrived safely here in Switzerland today! Excellent service and thank you. The webshop has a good structure and it deducted the VAT automatically, which is extremely handy! A praise again for the owners! My only suggestion is that the webshop is kind of slow and it brings some bugs during the procedure of buying....it showed me that one item (the one chassis that I bought) that it was not available although it was because I checked it, but eventually it was all fine! I am sure that you know of these glitches and that the stability will improve If possible in the near future please add better pictures of the products (also those pictures missing)...it helps us abroad. I will be coming back again to get some goodies in the near future. Keep up the good work! Kind Regards Andreas
  6. As shown above you can cut 0.4mm thick lines with a 0.25mm plasticard (10thou). Try it out...I designed the railing a was not sure if it was possible.
  7. Hi to all...this is my first work with the Cameo. I bought the maschine last december but haven't used it much but now the time has come. The coach is a Greek one. All the work has been done with 0.5mm and 0.25mm polystyrene from Evergreen. The railing has 0.4mm line thickness and I have to say I am very pleased. The railing is two layers of 0.25mm Polystyrene. I have now more projects on the go :-) Cheers Andreas
  8. Hi, He changed his email per 31st of March. [email protected] Hope this helps Andreas
  9. Hi Steve, I saw you posting and I filled out the contact form of JLTRT! I will get one kit for sure! Cheers Andreas
  10. Hi Andy, those ladders seem fine. Can you please tell me the width of these ladders....I am looking for some to equip some coaches that I have but they need to be 3mm wide.... Cheers Andreas
  11. Hi Robin, have a look at this Flickr photo sequence of the build by Brian Daniels. http://www.rmweb.co.uk/community/index.php?/topic/83307-djh-class-03-starter-kit/?p=1376815 Good Luck Andreas
  12. Hi Peter, ready???... I could dream of. Well actually I lost track of time and I have been away on a number of trip since November. I wont quit or abandon the project. I am determined to finish it. Stay tuned, a next installment will come and actually such posts keep me motivated. Cheers Andreas
  13. Hi Talltim, I know the "problem". French and brass models here are 1/43.5. Lenz, Brawa & Co. do 1/45. I do all my scratch building in 1/43.5 so are all my locos. Cheers Andreas
  14. Hi Fat Controller, It looks tempting. There has been the opposite, greek ferry wagons coming to the UK in the 60s so I guess the other way round could also be the case....desicions, desicions.... Cheers Andreas
  15. Hi Pete, The wagon looks really tempting. By researching I found that it was built starting in 1962. Am I right? Does anybody know how far south in continental Europe these wagons were coming? I would be tempted for my greek theme.... Cheers Andreas
  16. Ian, of course this is also an option. I have thought of that I just dont have such a material here for the roof. Actually, for the mail coach in the picture above the chassis is from a commercial model thus it already has a weight. I will add 2 magnets on the floor of the body and I will use the metal weight of the chassis to adhere. If you have something that I could use, I dont know if Mike minds, but I would like to see it. If not in this topic in a separate about coachbuilding? It comes into mind I could use the metal from the tomato cans.... Mike again....most excellent and inspiring work! Cheers Andreas
  17. Dear David, Thank you very much! Where to? Well....back to everyday life. I was working for a number of years now on PhD besides working fulltime. I was stressful especially last year when I had to deliver the work....now the challenges at work will take over and the challenges at modelling...I have an awful lot of projects acumulated over the years and now I have started slowly working through those but it is fun! BTW....I soldered everything up tonight. Tommorow or next week cleaning up the joints. Work is progressing for my standards rather fast. Cheers Andreas
  18. Dear Jim, that is perfect! It is enough and thanks a lot!!! I know now how the parts should fit together. I want also to mention that the short formers (parts 2-5 and 12) had the slots echted very tight. I thought in the begining that the tightness was in the slots of the longitudinal former but it was from te transverse one. I had to put a lot of effort to fit them using not such an elegant techinique with grinding the slots with the minidrill. Now I just need to solder everything up. :blush: Thanks!!! Cheers Andreas
  19. You could also put one in the middle, lets say above a partition wall. But why should it bow in the middle? I can see no reason.
  20. I am back, as I said before I had an important exam (my PhD Defence) last week and now it is over (with a good result). I am back to modelling again this time with full use of my free time after work......we....I started the tebnder body. Not big progress but I cut all the parts and formed them for the first step. In the following days I will solder the parts together. Can anyone help (Dibateg or Jim??) with the coal space door? I cannot understand how part 18 attaches to part 16... Cheers Andreas
  21. Hi Mike, just to make clear with what was my idea. I will drill a 2mm wide hole and 1mm deep. 1 hole on the side of the roof and one on the body. The glue the magnets with CA...basta.....You might be able to use even smaller magnets. I will also attach the chassis to the body like that. The only problem is if you use magnets for contacts on the line. Cheers Andreas
  22. Hi Mike, I havent tried it yet but especially for roofs I would use neodymium magnets (e.g. 2*1mm). These are small and have a force of about 135 gramms so it should be enough to hold the roof......just a thought. I have a scratch build coach here that I will attach the roof like that. Cheers Andreas P.S. Excellent thread and I a tempted to buy the Sillouhette cutter for some scratchbuilding.....
  23. I habe been shopping at Bercher and Sternlicht for about 20 years in and out. The prices are good even for shopping from outside switzerland and they have a huge stock!!!! Will be there again when I will finally go to Basel again....although I live 100km away....
