  1. I joined the GOG last September after speaking to a few local members at a show ran by a local o gauge group, I'd been invited along with my modern image layout and had a great day with lots of positive comments. After joining I signed up to the forum, I couldn't believe some of the stuff in the guild talk section regarding the costs of Telford etc, members asking genuine questions being brushed off or ignored. I pretty soon began to wonder what I'd signed up to, given the questions about the accounts, the now clear efforts of the "establishment" to protect their posit
  2. Those are something else Simon, really good! My Scottish Malt Distliiers polybulk is at this stage, custom decals although I see the Railtec ones are now available. Craig
  3. My latest project thanks to Simon! The Scottish Malt Distillers polybulk wagon, the PAV's in the last pic are also from Simon. My only grumble with myself is that when I built the PAV's and CO2 tanks I ordered Slaters wheels, the bearings are too big for the axleboxes so I had to drill them out, on ordering this one I mentioned wheels to Simon and he recommended Peartree wheels, on arriving I found the bearings were a perfect fit in the bogies.

  4. Glad I found this post, I'm starting an O gauge Slaters LMS van based on the Comrie colliery one posted on here a long time ago, the real one now resides at Bo'ness. Craig
  5. It's that time of year again! My O gauge layout "Glasshouse Loan" will be representing Bonnybridge Model Railway Club, now that my official duties as showguide editor are nearly done I'm cracking on with more rolling stock kits for the layout! Hopefully we'll see you there.
  6. Thanks Simon, The banding was made with Salters 0.030" x 0.030" microstrip, attached to the barrel before painting. Thanks for your help with the wagons, really pleased with how these have came out.
  7. No problem, thanks for helping anyway, I've now got the remaining transfers on and started on weathering them. Cheers Craig
  8. Thanks Mark, I now have the transfers I need to finish the wagons off, I'll have a look at getting a list from Appleby though.
  9. My progress so far, the orange lines have been masked and brush painted, they'll be faded and weathered anyway, the transfers on the model so far have been scavenged from other packs that I had spare, really pleased with how these are turning out.
  10. I've been following this thread for a while now and decided to take the plunge with a couple of the CO2 TTA tanks for my O gauge layout. The parcel arrived from Shapeways yesterday, really pleased with the parts I got, did a quick test assembly last night, I'm using sprung buffers and couplings bought through Invertrain and Slaters wheels, I picked up a short length of pipe for the tank barrels from ebay. Really pleased with how its went together, now to build them properly! Cheers Craig
  11. Hi all, Picked up an Ixion O gauge Folwer loco. Looking at sound for it and see quite a few posts on it here using the zimo mx645 decoder, my problem is that I don't see anywhere that supplies the decoder with the Fowler sound project. Does anyone know of anywhere that supplies it now?
  12. Great video, hate hearing the sound of my own voice! Not the most confident on the microphone either, its came out well though!
  13. Looking forward to the show, we'll be there with my first venture into O gauge "Glasshouse Loan". Hopefully we'll see you there!
