  1. I can see no reason not to use an ultrasonic cleaner, the power in domestic ones is sufficient to free off debris etc but totally insufficient to “rattle” soldered joints apart. Once cleaned why not fill the porous area and rub down. Jim P
  2. Lindsay Galloway produced a Silhouette file for a CR brake. Don't know which one though. The wee John Boyle one is very nice - I have one built and may have a spare etch somewhere. Jim P
  3. You are probably aware of my CR interests, being the last Chairman of the CRA. The pic of “Mineral traffic heading West” shows the, IM(not so)HO ugly CR brake van. For a railway company that did many things so well, these brake vans looked awful. Most enjoyable blog, keep up the good work. Jim P
  4. Have a look at nlsmaps Great site, particularly, old OS maps. Jim P
  5. The lining just gives an attractive loco a wee lift - very nice. Jim P
  6. I would agree about Fusion 360 but the free version has some significant restrictions and the cost is beyond the value of the programme for modellers. I have therefore started learning DesignSpark, available free on the RS Components website. Their own tutorials are a bit limited and not up to date, but those from Fabrication Planet, on youtube seem very good. Jim P
  7. Bill Bedford produced a handrail bending jig, currently available from Eileen’s Emporium Excellent Jim P
  8. I understand that there have been significant delays as a result of Covid. Why do you not get in touch with the Protocab guys for clarification, rather than ask on RMweb? Jim P
  9. Noch also make a couple of pink pigs “having it off” which amused me Jim
  10. There is a company, Seconds and Co which sells slightly damaged Kingspan approximately half Price.
  11. Have a look at www.burntisland.net The layout has a ferry for coal wagons - most impressive! Jim P
  12. Re jars, avoid the ones with a laminated paper seal - the seal can stick to stored paint and tear. I like Tamiya jars which seal but do not have paper seals - satisfied user. Jim P
  13. You will not get much blasting done using aerosol cans with the Badger. It will work perfectly satisfactorily with a small airbrush compressor. I now use a, presumably, Chinese made blaster, similar to the one sold by Axminster as “Spraycraft”. It is also cheaper than the Badger. Jim P
