  1. Thanks to all those who have posted helpful replies. I have sourced 6BA screws here in Oz and a pack of 25 are on their way as we speak! https://ejwinter.com.au/ for anyone else wishing BA or other items, they have a very comprehensive range. Cheers from Oz, Peter C.
  2. A big thank you to Steve at Railtec for developing transfers for my 'Pig Iron' wagon project. These are based on the old Trix wagon bodies with a variety of underframe parts from Parkside and Red Panda. Steve's transfers complete the job superbly, thanks again Steve! My rake of ten is now ready to enter service. Cheers from Oz, Peter C.

  4. I am restoring my old H/D 5005 loco shed, but I am short some of the roof fixing bolts. I had assumed that they were the standard Meccano bolt, but having received some from the UK, they do not fit. Can anyone tell me what size these bolts were, and where I may find them? Thanks in advance, Peter C.
  5. E4 would be appreciated.(and purchased)! Cheers from Oz, Peter C.
  6. Thank you Brian, not the answer I was hoping for as it makes it very hard to justify them for me, rather like the lovely Accurascale Coil wagons! Cheers from Oz, Peter C.
  7. Can anyone tell me when conversion of the Dia.1/004 Pig Iron wagons to Coil carriers commenced? I model late 1950s-Early 1960s and would like to try this conversion. Thanks in advance, Cheers from Oz, Peter C.
  8. Thank you Stephen, I'll go forward with it! Cheers from Oz, Peter C.
  9. Hi Fran, I have just placed an order for two sets of chaldrons into my cart. I am in Western Australia. When it comes to checkout there is no VAT deduction. Is this correct? Also, if I wish to order loads for these wagons when they are available, will it be possible to combine orders for one lot of postage? Inspired choice by the way, please thank Mr. Isles! Cheers, Peter Chandler
  10. Hi Clem and others, I disappeared down a rabbit hole of unusual wagons and came across this: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:4960216 Someone with more knowledge than me will be able to interpret just what all this means, but it seems there is a way of 3D-printing these ore wagons, just need to decipher how it's done, and look for a volunteer! Cheers from Oz, Peter C.
  11. Go on, gissa clue!!!!! Cheers from Oz, Peter C.
  12. Hi Barry, 34102 would definitely be a better fit for your loco./tender combination. This useful table: https://www.bulleidsociety.org/OVS_Bulleid/OVSB_Light_Pacifics.html gives a mass of detail on the Bulleid pacifics. From this 103 received it's cut-down tender in 10/58 whereas 102 received cut-down in 7/61. One other point to be aware of is the position of the W/C class scroll. On those locos not intended for a shield it is placed higher up the casing. See this pic. from Colour-Rail: https://colourrail.co.uk/api/image/medium/e375d001-003b-429e-8358-702a9e26ecfa Hope this helps, Cheers from Oz, Peter C.
  13. I am not so sure about this late-crest model having a different boiler. Looking at the illustrations on the Oxford site the only difference to me appears to be the position of the whistle, moved from cab roof to firebox top. This picture of 65817 in Rail Online https://www.rail-online.co.uk/p840639440 has note that this loco. was unique in 1965 as still carrying the original boiler with tall dome. Perhaps someone whose knowledge about this class can explain further? Cheers from Oz, Peter C.
  14. Does anyone have a spare set of these that they do not want? I am hoping to send them to Railtec to have them scaled -down from 7mm to 4mm scale. Thanks in advance, Peter C.
  15. Here is my BR lined example, arrived today in Western Australia. Already had the black paint out to tone down the silver brightwork, and altered that tender crest using a Fox transfer! Just running in on the rolling road at the moment, but the elegance of the design shows well even in black. Why was it transferred to Colwick though? Cheers from Oz, Peter C.
