    My interests funny enough include:
    A focus on the LNER GE Suburban lines in 00 Gauge
    O Gauge Modelling focused on GE/M&GN Locomotives & rolling stock
    Military Modeling

    My railway interest surrounds the LNER in 1930 - 1938, with my OO Modeling, focused on the Great Eastern Suburban Lines and my O Gauge Modelling focused on the Light Railways in Norfolk on the Great Eastern Railway.

    Alongside my RM Web, Page is my YouTube Channel of the same name which you can find here:


    I do hope you enjoy the current videos ( As of 2020) They maybe a little short but plans are in the works to produce longer video's with the
    aim to challenge people and modelers to try new things and do how to video's of building kits in OO or O Gauge.

  1. This might be a question that has already been asked. But does anyone know where I could find a Brass kit of a RSH 14' 0-4-0ST in 7mm? Thank you in advance Tom
  2. Thank you all for your comments. I was looking at Road Runner Plus & Road runner compact as the two to use on the P1, I was thinking of putting lead in the boiler to give the loco pulling power! Thank you all for the suggestions, if there are more I'll happily listen, as we know the great thing about the hobby is to help and aid younger modelers such as myself. Cheers Tom
  3. Hello, I have been building a PDK LNER P1, an interesting build to say the least. I am about ready to get a gear box in, there's not a lot of space in the P1 and I'm keen to have the motor hidden up. Please is there any suggestions, I already have a Motor, which fits and can be hidden. Thank you Tom
  4. Evening everyone, Been a long time since I've updated you all on the project for these W&U tramway cars, so in the end I have painted them, fitted the couplings and I have got safety chains lined up for them both. I have chosen GE No.3, LNER No.60465 (4 wheeler) & GE No.8, LNER No.60461 ( 8 wheeler, seen in the Titfield Thunderbolt). The next major parts to fit onto the model is the seats, roof & Vents. I am looking into fitting figures into the coaches to bring them to life, I would like some more information however, I'd like some Air pipe work and some information if anyone else has the 7mm kit with the large AIR reservoir please let me know. Cheers Tom
  5. You know it's funny I was in my local model shop and I 'picked up a D&S kit complete and 'paid £15 for it, I will update how I'm getting on with the tramway car's soon.
  6. New website is really good, really easy to navigate around, looking forward to ordering from you soon, I did send an email. But as you've stated previously you're not getting them at the moment. Thanks
  7. Have been working on a PDK LNER P1 2-8-2 with the booster. 


    I am now currently waiting for wheels, I do have concerns with pickups as the break rodding is sitting in an awkward spot. But nothing that a bit of modification and experimentation won't do any harm





  8. It'll be worth the wait, it's a shame as a younger modeler looking at the former 4mm D&S kits and how much they're going for online has meant I'm glad 3D printing has become a way to get access to examples which D&S used to make in kit form. Thanks Tom
  9. Hi @woko, I've just found this blog, and I'm nothing short of amazed, glad to see wagons from various pre-grouping companies being modeled! I hope you don't mind but I have messaged you about a possible order for a number of GN & GE wagons I hope that is okay? Thank you Tom
  10. Hi, A bit late to the party, however does anyone have any photo's other than those in the Peter Tatlow LNER Wagons book of the LNER's 140ton Gunset? I am struggling to find any other than the official photo's the LNER took in 1938, as I have one being made in CAD for 3D printing. Thanks Tom
  11. Hello, I have another question for this page, so the kit comes with etched vents which go above the windows, looking at plenty of images, this has given me a few more questions. Is it worth using the etches, or should I pursue white metal or 3D printed equivalents? I have checked Shapeways, and sadly the only 3D printed versions have been in 4mm. If so, could anyone help me with that?
  12. A question for this page, I am rather confused about the placement of the Air/Vacuum tanks on the tramway cars, can anyone help me with this please?? Thanks Tom
  13. Almost finished with them, the vents on the sides, windows need to be fitted into the bogie coach and the brake wheels are all that remains in terms of physical kit parts. I'm looking to fit the GE Safety chains onto both coaches and somehow fit the Slaters Screw Link couplings...Some thinking to do me thinks. I think I've gotten the gates into the right place? Based on the drawing they should be in line with the buffers, judging by the placement I think they're right now. D&S was kind enough to send me a few extra's to help with the kit as I made a few mistakes but nothing you can see now! I'm planning ahead with painting now, so far I'm looking to use the Golden Teak by Phoenix paints, but I'm not sure weather to just paint that straight on or scumble it with a Teak style colour? Thanks Tom
  14. Happy New Year to you all! My Christmas has been spent looking through my LNER GE theme and working out what I want to do with it, and it's safe to say I'm going to be keeping up with this for the long haul. However I took a long break from 4mm modelling as I shifted focus to my LNER GE 7mm modelling. I have reached a bit of a slump from that and have moved back to the 4mm. This has seen me looking to finish the LNER 52'6 Teaks, as I think I was getting fed up of talking about them and I think those who follow the blog would prefer that too! Anyway, I took the opportunity to practice and apply the "Gold" lining to the body sides and apply decals. Just the Roof's to do now!! The GE 4 Wheelers I have acquired, will now be finished off but for a different layout set on the Middy. However I've used these 4 wheelers as the basis for the LNER 6 Wheelers which I require for the Smaller "local" set headed by an E4 or J15. Interestingly when I ordered the W&U Tramway cars in 7mm form D&S Danny was kind enough to give me a Fret of his GE 4mm 6 Wheel brake coach...I think this might help form the basis for the train!!
  15. To answer the question, I have currently 2 A4's in my possession both Kings Cross Locomotives in March - May 1938 Condition. Being 2510 QUICKSILVER ( From the 80th Anniversary Quartet) and 4489 DOMINION OF CANADA ( From the Great Goodbye Set) I have just bought a 3rd A4 4491 Commonwealth of Australia, with the intention to turn the Loco into her sister 4492 Dominion of New Zealand also a Kings Cross A4 as of March 1938. Interestingly the reason for the time is due to 2510 being sent for a general overhaul and re-painting into LNER Garter Blue, while 4489 was not fitted with her bell until March 1938. Setting the period for these loco's. Finally worth of note is my Streamlined LNER P2 No.2003 which is a modified P2 with the Gr King Resin front end. Plan is to order the Hornby 2003 so she can sit with the W1 No.10000 and the 3 A4's proudly where all the liveries match, more importantly for me. I think, I will have all the LNER A4 fitted Tender types (1928 Corridor, 1935 Streamlined Corridor & Streamlined Non Corridor) Thanks Tom
