  1. Phil, The solution seems pretty simple to me.... Regards Andrew
  2. Have a chat to Mike "Supercast" Pett. He has just the chap!
  3. Your cake box is built to a really nice standard. I'm sure you'll be able to incorporate what you have so far into a future project.
  4. I've followed your thread with interest and I'm really impressed with just how many buildings you've managed to squeeze into the space. In my opinion you've nailed that Victorian/Dickensian squalid look and presented a backstory that meant I didn't bat an eyelid when I saw a giant snail sliding along the street!
  5. Hi Keith, I think the kit would totally work for that. It's built as a free standing unit which you just stick the side walls onto or not in your example. The only thing that might cause you an issue is the fixed height of the escalator (about 2" tall). You could work around that by editing the download though. The stairs are built in the same way, you would just add or remove flights/steps until you reach the desired height. Best wishes Andrew
  6. The all important verification photos. In the interest of full disclosure, the electrical switch (not part of the model) does protrude slightly from the stated dimensions. Rules The model must fit in a standard 8 by 8 by 6 inch cake box It must include 2 items with a railway connection You should follow the theme "Waiting for a train". How you interpret that is up to you.
  7. All done, entry now submitted.
  8. OK, with less than 48 hours to go, I'd better pull my finger out and get this written up. In the mean-time, here's some CCTV footage showing a couple of shifty looking gricers hanging around on Platform 2...
  9. My ticket arrived in my inbox earlier today, so if you've signed up for this offer keep an eye out for it! Andrew
  10. Dan, I had a similar issue a while back. I was able to resolve it by ordering through the PocketMags website rather than the app. Once I restarted the app the back issue was in my library. Hope this helps, Andrew
  11. Bearing your comments in mind, this may not be directly relevant to you Paul, but the shop signs supplied with Scalescenes T008a and T022c kits are a perfect fit for the Metcalfe kits. Just print, cut out and paste on top of the Metcalfe sign. Regards Andrew
  12. As Jason has correctly summised above, I was suggesting that the entry question for this competition is a bit of a cock-up. The question as written is: Q. In which year was Hornby Hobbies Ltd. founded? The factually correct answer to this question is 17 October 1986. That isn't one of the multiple choice options though, suggesting that whoever set the question either relied upon Wikipedia for their research or meant to ask a different question.
  13. The real question is, who has the correct answer, Companies House or Wikipedia? https://beta.companieshouse.gov.uk/company/02065081 https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hornby_Railways ;-) Andrew
