  1. Which is here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/109619289726001/ Richard
  2. I'm not sure of the source of that particular map, it's clearly from one of the many pieces of LNWR publicity printed by McCorquodale . I suspect it has been selected for the LNWRS website because it's relatively compact There are many others, for instance: http://www.lnwrs.org.uk/Sales/map.php The answer appears to be that keen to make the LNWR look as impressive as possible, railways that included through working for LNWR carriages is included. It's much the same for any of the pre-grouping companies, a GWR map would similarly extensive Richard
  3. There's a similar product but fibre based that B&Q sell, green stuff in packs. I have used that - under the flooring in my modelling room Richard
  4. I have also posed the question on the LNWRS Facebook group, which is rather more active
  5. My understanding is that the thin lines are where the LNWR had running rights. I'll ask on the LNWRS forum Interesting question Richard
  6. And be aware, you are teetering on the edge of a scary aspect of any modelling. What's going to happen is this: You search for appropriate decals and find a really attractive scheme. Only then you find it is for a different mark/block/series of aeroplane to the one you are modelling. But there is an aftermarket resin kit that will correct the model to be the mark/block/series you want. And the kit also includes some other part to 'improve' the accuracy, so you'll fit that too. Meanwhile you found an aftermarket cockpit/landing gear/missile pack/gun installation/ejector seat/pilot that you just have to have. Oh, and you ought to buy some books about the model while you are at it, and you've found a really neat walkaround on the internet that shows some really nice piping details in some obscure area that you ought to represent Pretty soon, you've replaced 90% of the kit, spent four times the original cost and all the 'research' material weighs ten times the original model Ask me how I know this... Richard
  7. If you design a 'left hand' one and turn it over, you'd have a right hand one. Only it's likely the material finish is different side to side. So one board with the components fitted either side and you have what i think I'm seeing Richard
  8. Isn't it the same board, turned over with the components mounted on the underside?
  9. Off the wall suggestion Call in at your nearest Games Workshop when it is relatively quiet. They are keen on getting people to make things and are usually happy to get you doing something. Yes it will be fantasy wargaming, the skills are very transferable They'll get you using acrylics with water - very versatile. I much prefer acrylics Richard DO NOT buy any Empire/Catachans/Space Marines - you'll end up in a whole new world of modelling that way
  10. Was it BRUTEs that were made up into trains and hauled down the slopes and under the tracks at New Street? Richard
  11. Their website: http://www.cs.rhrp.org.uk/se/CarriageInfo.asp?Ref=5628 Richard
  12. I'm not sure it was that clear cut at the time. There was a lot of scepticism that a metal wheel on a metal rail could provide enough traction to move a train. Brunton's horse uses existing technology* to provide the contact with the ground What I think is more obvious is the limitation of the design because it has to rely on the weight of the loco. The model lifts the rear wheels off the ground, the full size one would almost certainly do the same when the load got too great Richard *you know what I mean
  13. I'm now waiting for a detailed analysis of £ per class per linear foot of model Enquiring minds need to know! Richard
