  1. Looks fantastic so far! This looks like it has great composition too with loads of good angles.
  2. Sadly I don't have much time to operate finlarig anymore so this is leading me to sell the working rc van that ran on it. Currently on eBay for £100 buy it now (free postage) but open to offers too. Hope it finds a good home. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/383678702781
  3. Apologises to all for this coming out so late but we have the results in! Firstly, a massive thank you to everyone that has entered, the quality of the modeling entries we received really blew us away, as did the number of entries. It was very hard to judge, and excuse the cliche but we honestly thought everyone deserved to win. So anyway, here is the results video: Once again thank you all for making this possible and we look forward to maybe running another modeling competition in the future!
  4. I'm still to build a boxfile layout but I'd say you may want to reinforce it with some thin wood or foamboard just to help reduce warping from glues and moisture. Anything thicker than 5mm may be a bit over kill though.
  5. Looking great kevo! You may be giving me ideas of a far north line micro...
  6. Wow that is a lot of money for not a of detail or realism. I'd be curious to see how the seller would be able to have any shunting potential when it looks like just 4 pieces of straight flex track..
  7. I'd say that the station roof could be a bit lower. Looking at this photo of wick the roof doesn't seem to be that much higher than the loco..
  8. Love it! Big fan of the 24 and you've got a great Scottish feel about it.
  9. It's been a while but I've finally got round to painting the fascia on Cronton. I've used the same super Matt black chalkboard paint as used on Distillery. And in other news my model kit range is now live! https://www.ebay.co.uk/sch/i.html?sid=train_crash_models&isRefine=true&_pgn=1
  10. This is one I've built and use regularly. https://www.rmweb.co.uk/community/index.php?/topic/151526-a-micro-work-bench-solution/
  11. Where do you source those turnout throws from? I've been looking for something like that for a long time for my micros.
  12. Awesome! Seeing your success I may have to integrate chain shunting into a future layout. How smooth is the wagon moving? Does it jerk at all whilst the chain goes round the pin?
