  1. Many thanks - it's really good to know of a satisfactory outcome
  2. I take it that's not your best pair of long-nosed pliers Mike......
  3. It's often the case that for small claims procedures no actual appearance in court is required - it's often simply a paperwork exercise so far as I am aware. It may well be that Mike simply doesn't enter a defence, given his sad predicament - in which case it is likely that the court would rule in the claimant's favour. However, that would still leave recovery of the debt - which of course assumes that there are funds to do so.... It would be useful if a member of his family could post on here, asking if any person owed outstanding items could contact them via private message (with copies of supporting evidence etc.) indicating what is outstanding/sums involved etc. That would at least help the situation for some at least (receipt of goods or refund). (p.s. I have no outstanding orders, fortunately).
  4. That's the one. I wonder if his brief would've been as righteous if she were the one being whacked round the head? Still, never let guilt get in the way of a pay cheque.....
  5. Is not the "council employee" then in possession of an offensive weapon in a public place when they exit the shop.....?
  6. What's even more worrying is that you can also buy "Tannerite" in those same shops with no licence or permit etc. (some States can't sell it). https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tannerite Take a look on Youtube for some videos of people messing with the stuff... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DjlOEhUr4Ys https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S6V0S1m5a7U
  7. Yet the scrote that was in court yesterday for whacking a a Police Officer round the head (7 times?) with a 2ft long rusty machette was found not guilty of possessing an offensive weapon. Fortunately he was found guilty of other charges, so will (I hope!) get sent down....
  8. It's also a good idea to carry a spare wheel and jack for the trailer too....
  9. The Bank of England Inflation Calculator puts £20 in 1960 now being equivalent to £464.07 in 2019
  10. Ray Hammond (past Chairman of the S4 Soc?) constructed a layout to 'pure' S4 Standards (not to be confused with the much more common P4 Standards) called Buntingham, which features working point rodding and trackwork construction standards which are truly scaled down from the prototype; I believe Ray did this in order to prove those who said it couldn't be done were wrong . (I believe the layout is still alive and well, despite being constructed in the mid 70's). MRJ Issue 49 may well contain a feature on the layout.
  11. The trick will be to build them without marking the paintwork....
  12. Is there any hope of adding what time period each of the livery variants is suited to on the website please? My chequebook is poised, but I don't want to order one that didn't run in the period that interests me.... Thanks
  13. Dave Ellis at South East Finecast gave up AP several years ago - he told me it had (for him) become a "box shifting exercise" with no profit to show for a lot of effort. As for bargains, the Traders have to cover their costs so giving stuff away for little profit just doesn't compute
  14. The Farnell, RS and Rapid websites all state that this is no longer manufactured :( so if you do find any left it may be worth buying several... Is this also the same stuff: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Pledge-Klear-Multi-Surface-Wax/dp/B008HFVO32/ref=pd_sbs_201_t_0/261-2531671-6586217?_encoding=UTF8&pd_rd_i=B008HFVO32&pd_rd_r=00490bf2-0a4e-4940-8864-b0a7cb7aec15&pd_rd_w=kD0ZP&pd_rd_wg=Gluab&pf_rd_p=e44592b5-e56d-44c2-a4f9-dbdc09b29395&pf_rd_r=46A7ATH7NJ0YXNDB3KQS&psc=1&refRID=46A7ATH7NJ0YXNDB3KQS
  15. You called, Sir.... https://www.hamodels.net/index.php?search[keywords]=labelle&_a=category No connections etc. etc. HTH
