    GWR pre nationalisation..............kit building, locos, coaches and wagons
  1. Definitely a bit of a beast this one, I had a couple of bits left over but it looks okay and is fine for me.....if you are doing the gwr version you will have to do the cab yourself, Brassmasters promised one yonks ago but it never materialised, when you come to paint it I found it best to be spray finished either with aerosol or paint sprayer, almost impossible to do it with a brush, I am very pleased with mine but I would wince if asked to do another one......all the very best.......Dave.....
  2. Hi Tony......... they come supplied flat and you cut them to length and width and form the profile to your needs, looking at the profile it would appear you would only have to form both edges, should be okay, as I said I have used them before and use them at all times now as a matter of choice......sorry I have not replied before as I was away in the Emerald Isle for holidays.......Dave.....
  3. Hi....I was just wondering if the Branchlines universal brass roof may be any good, it is 260mm long and I have used them a number of times and found them very good, hope it helps......Dave.....
  4. Well problem solved...........a chance phone call with a fellow modeller reveals he has sheet 24 lurking in the depths of a cupboard so there we are work can start on the coach.......thank you to those who gave various advice.......regards Dave brighty.......
  5. Hi pete.......yes I think you may be right I have e mailed hmrs asking if they do them in 4mm, we shall see......Dave.....
  6. According to the instructions with the kit the first was withdrawn in 1933 and the last one in 1944...........a total of 4 being built in 1901/2.....2 weighing vans, and 2 packing vans...........Dave.......
  7. Hi there.....I. Bought one of these kits at rail wells last year and am just starting it, it all seems fairly straightforward except I do not seem to be able to find any transfers for the the kit, namely “LMS or Midland newspaper van “ which appears to go along the side of the van, I would be grateful if anyone has done one of these vans and could tell me where to obtain said the transfers I have looked at the normal transfer companies HMRS, model master etc, perhaps I have missed it......regards Dave brighty.....
  8. Hi Garry.......thank you for the input and the video, very nice, it will give me food for thought as they say, still not sure what course of action to take.......regards....Dave.....
  9. Here is hoping someone may be able to give me some advice.........I have at present a 00 gauge Exley portsmouth set which is three rail....it is a 2 coach set, one powered one non powered,.....the motor still runs quite well for its age without taking it apart, a good friend of mine has offered to convert it to 2 rail running, the question is how would be the best way of doing it......1) taking the motor out and replacing the wheels and pick ups to run on 2 rail or 2) perhaps replacing the motor unit with a suitable modern unit ie. Bachmann or Hornby etc........has anyone attempted this conversion, I am open to suggestions even if it means leave well alone and leave it 3 rail.....Dave Brighty.......
  10. Have previously bought kits from this shop off e bay in the past at very good prices so, as we were on holiday this week I called in and I was very surprised at the quantity of good model railway stuff for sale, the owner quickly found me another kit I was after and also a number of other items I found whilst rummaging around, came out £25 poorer but very happy with my purchases, worthwhile a visit if you are on the Isle of Wight.
  11. Hi mark.......I will pm you my details.......regards.....Dave.
  12. Hi there Mark.........I have been following this article and have corresponded with Jonathon and he has kindly sent me the drawings that he has......the transfers also seem to be elusive to find but I would certainly be interested if you are doing some transfers....regards. Dave...
  13. The chap I got the transfers from was called Eric Gates, I believe something to do with Woodham wagon works, he lives in the Bristol area and I got the transfers about 5 years ago, I am afraid I have no contact details for him......regards....Dave
  14. Hi there..... if you would like to pm me with your address I have a spare sheet of these transfers which may help you out Regards....Dave Brighty....
