  1. Another recommendation for emodels here, plus Scale Model Shop: https://www.scalemodelshop.co.uk/products/paints/vallejo-paints
  2. Your cue, Kevin . . . . . .
  3. I've got lots of thoughts, but I have to be careful who (if anyone) I share them with. Thoughts that are applicable to this topic are many and mainly concern admiration, inspiration and fascination. Admiration for the way that everything is thoroughly thought through prior to implementation. Inspiration because I am invariably moved to go and do some modelling of my own in order to defeat procrastination. Fascination with the results that continue to pour forth from the organisation surrounding Little Muddle station. Rather than navy and cream, can't you use black and white?
  4. I didn't say it was wrong. I just wondered if anybody had said that it was.
  5. Has anybody yet mentioned that Little Muddle should be facing the other way?
  6. I thought that they were called pin-point bearings if they supported a ground point axle and top-hat bearings if the axle went all the way through..
  7. Depends on the system you're using, but you're pretty much on the ball here. If it was my layout I'd go for something rated a bit higher. I'm no expert on this topic, but I've never had a layout blow up on me or damage my stock electrickery bits. Edit: Sam Moss just got there first. Probably the first of many!
  8. Was it a black and white film?
  9. I wonder where this topic will take us . . . . . . . . . .
  10. Fully understood. Every single aspect of something new has to tested and tested again. Just to be sure. And if the testing goes too well, you just have to repeat it in case it's a fluke.
  11. It could have been ignored at the time, quite easily, but now that it's in print we don't have that option. Your punishment will be severe.
  12. Are you sure that that sort of language is allowed here?
  13. I just love all this dirty talk! A train at a time? Good plan. Happy New Year, young man.
  14. St. Giles' really does look good, so well done! Nice to not see that Land Rover. Anticipating 2020s review . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
  15. The trouble with reading an account that is 45 pages long is that by the time you reach the end you've forgotten how it all started. Speaking personally, that is. Seeing it summarised in (significantly) fewer pictures just highlights the enormous energy this project must have consumed. I used to think that I had mastered the everyday use of the English language, but my failure to describe adequately just how this project has inspired me just demonstrates how wrong I was. One question, Simon. Will there be a model of you standing on a fence somewhere?
