  1. Great! Are you also designing another 0-4-0 tender loco like the one I showed you via PM?
  2. I see you've updated your 0-4-0 tender engine - Looks nice as well.
  3. Why is this post the only one without comments? Strange, really.
  4. That's where Hornby got their inspiration for the Industrial 0-4-0 in their Railroad range. Maybe if I wanted to make the 0-6-0 version, I'd use the Terrier Chassis.
  5. Wonderufl to hear! Good luck with that and we'll be looking forward to the finished product soon.
  6. An nice Indian Red would be the way to go. I would find Humbrol's Virgin Red Matt a potential choice. What do you think? Something like this?
  7. Sorry, you can still use the 0-4-0 chassis on the Hornby tank engines and diesel shunters.
  8. Of course. I can suggest more locomotives (and rolling stock). *An express passenger engine based on the GNR Ivatt C1 large boiler Atlantic 4-4-2 (firebox, boiler, smokebox and cab), the SR Lord Nelson 4-6-0 Class (smoke deflectors and chimney) and the LMS Princess Royal Class 4-6-2 (running board); the tender is combination of the Lord Nelson tender, the LMS Stanier tender and the Bulleid SR West Country tender. :A goods engine based on the LMS Fowler 4F, the GWR Dean Goods and the LSWR Drummond 700 Class using the Hornby Thomas Toby the Tram Engine Chassis; the tender is a mix between the Midland 3F tender, the GWR 2251 Class tender and the Bulleid Q1 tender. *A streamlined express engine which combines the LMS Stanier Duchess, the LNER Gresley P2 and the SR West Country Class (the tender would also be stream-lined, too). *A freelance high speed train inspired by the French TGV, the British Rail Class 43 and the Virgin Pendolino and the Japanese Shinkansen. *A heavy freight locomotive based on the S&DJR 7F 2-8-0, the LMS Stanier 8F, the GWR 2800 Class, the BR Standard 9F, the MR Lickley Banker 0-10-0 and the WD Austerity 2-10-0. Finally, some goods wagons and coahces inspired by the old Bing O Gauge and Gauge 1 models. What do you think?
  9. I'm sure you will. Plus, I am working on a freelance 0-6-0 tank engine.
  10. That's a very creative HST! Even BR would go for a prototype like this! Good luck making it into a model!
  11. Nice pacific model, though the cab is kinda sagging down at the back.
  12. It's been a while since I last read and commented here on this thread. You'll be pleased to know that I am improving my social life and intending to go out into the world more and meet more people.
  13. The guy who founded Dapol has kicked the bucket - sad, really. Aside from model railway equipment and rolling stock, they also made toys, particularly the Dr Who action figures which combined the space fantasy touch of Star Wars and the impressive articulation from G.I. Joe and their action figures. I heard in the Railway Modelling newspaper he actually met Colin Baker the Sixth Doctor at a Comic Con in Preston. He even had a TARDIS coffin thus crystallizing his connection with the Whoovians and the franchise forever.
