  1. A big shout out for Graham at Cambrian Models - I had been working on a Shark, only to find that one of the side wall mouldings was faulty (extensive sunken sections on the planking). I emailed Cambrian on Sunday, received a reply the next morning, and the replacement arrived today. First class
  2. That should of course read '...rear inner face...'
  3. I wonder if it would be possible to make up springs of a suitable length, just under the diameter of the inside of the buffer housing, then securely glue them on the backs of the buffer heads, lastly gluing the other end to the rear face of the housing. That's probably completely unfeasible so feel free to ignore me!
  4. Thanks Jason, the Brassmasters instructions and pics are very helpful. The version I have has the same tender as the Brassmasters one, i.e. the Fowler 3500 gallon, but there doesn't appear to be any locating points on the one I have... still, I think I have enough info to proceed. Alternatively I could just leave them off, of course!
  5. I attempted to obtain some info by posting in the Questions and Help forum but so far have had quite a number of views but no replies, so thought perhaps by posting a link here... ...I might have more luck!
  6. In the process of fitting the detailing bits and bobs to a Bachmann 4F, I have found it difficult to determine how the cab doors should be attached. Looking at the service sheet it would suggest that they fit inside the cab side sheets, but this seems unlikely. I've not been able to find a definitive pic anywhere, so I was wondering if anyone knows how they should be fitted? To the tender perhaps? I know this applies to some locos, but by no means all. Hopefully someone can shed some light on this...
  7. One of the triangular pivots on the side of the vac cylinder rests in the 'L' shaped mark, thereby setting the depth. Hope that helps!
  8. Well well, who'd a thought it! Thanks. Have now studied the photos further.
  9. Okay. But the headstock is the same?
  10. You can walk to the pub; you just can't go in! But seriously, cycling is perfect in this situation. Very easy to keep one's distance from others. Love your work by the way.
  11. Well actually I meant... https://paulbartlett.zenfolio.com/brshocvanvsv/h1541650#h1c65f838 Should have put the link in before...
  12. As far as Hatton's is concerned, I think that's a unilateral decision on their part, and very unlikely to be widely implemented... I hope.
  13. There's a close-up on Paul's site that shows the buffer beam with no rivets or reinforcing plate, just the raised ridge as on the longer buffer beam shown in your pic.
  14. Just so. My reply was to the poster that I quoted, i.e. Gareth Collier. Apologies if it caused any confusion!
