  1. Thanks Neil, I remember this from first time round now, even asked a question! I intend to use a spare Bachmann 2.4.2T chassis, not absolutely accurate but accurate enough for my standards. I will probably order in a week or two. cheers from Oz, Peter C.
  2. Has anybody any experience of these? I am looking at this kit: https://www.shapeways.com/product/BZTND5WJY/lner-class-f6-2-4-2-tank-locomotive-kit?optionId=56453077 Any advice previous experience welcome/ Cheers from Oz, Peter C.

    Hornby APT 2020

    14 hours ago, Dagworth said: I've got a Rapido APT-E but it's very buried in its box and inaccessible at the moment. I've never had cause to open it up and it's never yet been put on rails. Can anyone elaborate on how the Rapido tilt system works please? Without wishing to cause personal offence to either of the gentlemen quoted, do not these words make the adoption of a 'state of the art' articulation system un-necessary. I think if Hornby can use the original system, it will suit 90+% of the potential purchasers. Cheers from Oz, Peter C. (who had an original APT sourced here and sold it back to the UK).
  5. I have just received my D6120, and after (very) a long wait, I am rather pleased to have the model in my hands at last! First impressions are very favourable, it is running in on a rolling road as we speak. However, I am rather surprised by the lack of documentation provided with the model. I received two printed sheets, one dealing with the no-quibble guarantee, the second with DCC decoder settings. Nothing on placement of detailing parts, lubrication, body removal etc. My class 21s came with a comprehensive service book, is something missing from my class 21 box? Cheers from Oz, Peter C.
  6. Thanks for the reply Gibbo, some food for thought there! I'll have a look at the Dapol chassis when the kits arrive, the dublo items are in the UK awaiting pickup/posting along with lots of other goodies, I am lucky that I have an address and nice person who will save my UK EBay purchases and post them in bulk/or wife/I collect them if we are visiting. It avoids the expensive mess EBay have made of posting overseas. Thanks again and all the best for 2020, Cheers from OZ, Peter C.
  7. This is a project that I am currently planning to undertake! I have obtained three H/D prestwins and intend to cut down the current Dapol 12' Prestwin kit chassis to 10'6" for the underframe. I had intended to use the silo bases from the kit on the shorter underframe; however reading the above it seems the extra height of the early prestwin is due to the discharge being above the underframe, is my thinking this correct? I also have two original Airfix kits for the later batch for comparison. Any other thoughts, ideas or information gratefully received! Cheers from Oz, Peter C.
  8. As an Aussie resident/citizen since 1974, may I ask why? Cheers from Oz, Peter C.
  9. BB, Is it your intention to market these to the public? I had followed the 'K' on Jack P's thread and it looks very good. I am at present trying to revive a 30-odd y.o. kit-build of a K's K, your print looks very good in comparison. cheers from Oz, Peter C.

    Oxford N7

    Looking for a second '69612' to convert into '69621', I was both pleased and saddened to find it has sold out at all of my favourite emporia for export sales. So much for waiting for discount... Oxford have a success on their hands, I hope the J27 does as well, perhaps I should pre-order a second now? Please do not fill the thread with replies that 'XVZ still have 2 in stock'..it was not the purpose of the post. Well done Oxford! Cheers from Oz, Peter C.

  12. I wonder if they will be able to be opened like this one....? Cheers from Oz, Peter C. PS. The Mogul pictures do look very tasty, like the BR green with 'Caerphilly-works' tender lining.
  13. Reminds me of my 'Farish' 94xx, weighed over 1lb, would pull anything I put behind it..purchased from Bob Denny in Sawley, 50-odd years ago! Cheers from Oz, Peter C.
  14. For those interested in ferrous porcine matters, may I point you to two of my recent topics? I have not seen another Trix pig iron wagon for sale on Ebay for months now!! A shame, as I wouldn't mind a couple more. Cheers from Oz, Peter C.
