  1. I’ll throw in my recommendation for Games Workshop Green stuff (yes that is it’s real name). It comes as either a two part putty (cut a sliver off and mix until dark green) or a paintable paste. have personally used both for my warhammer models and they are both superb. Reasonably slow drying, easy to sculpt, can take a good level of detail and is easy to sand/file back to a seamless finish
  2. Freelance or not, I do like that myself, along with the dairy wagon behind. Will be purchasing myself (although a rename could well be on the cards - not a fan of ‘Sid’)
  3. Happy to see that the Talyllyn has stepped in to help local residents who have (temporarily) lost their bus services get about in the area: https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-wales-48772940 Good on them!
  4. Hello hello, I do believe that that is my design delighted to see it being used I trust it was all okay?

    Forgive me for this, but I do find it rather sitasteful that people have gone and looked at the value of Dave’s house on zoopla seemingly in an attempt to nothing but tear the man down even more. What possible use could be made of such invasive enquiries I can’t imagine. This business is now insolvent, any next steps concerning money/crowdfunding refunds/ are totally and utterly out of Dave’s hands, so I do wonder if we can allow him to lick his wounds in peace without publicly speculating on how much of his house’s value went into the business.

    I did say that I didn’t think that it would be covered, nobody would be more delighted than me to be proved wrong on this one, truly. And it’s certainly worth trying it. As an aside, beware of this website - they don’t half talk nonsense about some things. In this case, the article seems alright, but i’d also want a corroboratory source of information for practically anything this site says - the number of people I have dealt with who have been misinformed by it is quite staggering .

    Touching on this, I have been involved in investigating and resolving s.75 claims for multiple companies and at the FOS itself. I can assure you that the FOS holds no fear for them even if it will cost money to resolve - financial institutions are now more concerned with precedent and principle rather than immediate cost. What’s more, whenever I was threatened with this myself, it was time to smile warmly, hand over a FOS information leaflet and usher them to the door. You will get considerably more help by being polite and friendly. It it seems unlikely to me that s.75 will work

    shall we provide Dave with the benefit of the doubt for a moment, him moving a trading address to an accountancy firm (not the most outrageous or uncommon move it must be said) triggering a veritable landslide of speculation on here is hardly likely to improve matters for him. assuming for a moment that there is a legitimate business reason for this (rather than insolvency of some kind - for which I would remind everyone there is currently no evidence at all) then some comments made here could do irreparable harm to both Dave and his business. Like it or not, he has the right to ru

    Having worked at the Insolvency Service myself I am of the honest opinion that we should wait for news. There is no evidence of what exactly is happening so Let’s wait and see what turns up shall we?
  10. Fund has now just broken £37,000 Big plaudits to everyone who has given give yourselves a round of applause
  11. Best and the worst of people here - the unthinking and moronic actions of the vandals have inspired generosity and care beyond measure in our community. Whilst money cannot repay, it certainly shows that we all close ranks when the situation calls for it.
  12. They are indeed, but my understanding was that this extended only to cars and maybe scenery, not the rail items
  13. I today paid a visit to the Hornby Visitor Centre and for some reason they had a basketful of ‘Janus’ locos for £50. Had the port of London, ICI and Allied Steel variants
  14. Remarkable bit of preservation there, must ride behind it at some point
  15. A further good review from me as a satisfied customer - light bars for 009 coaches obtained at a thoroughly reasonable price (albeit this was a while back now) so I'm happy
  16. Its something that I have sort of on the back (or turf) burner for my shapeways shop. Was hoping to pick up a Bachmann 66 to use the chassis to use it
  17. I've chosen to support this project on the basis that I want a model of GT3 and think that this offers by far the best chance of getting one of a modern RTR standard. I'd also like to politely point out to those people that seem to be using KR Model's lack of a track record as a basis to bash them seem to have disregarded that there was a time when everyone in this industry didnt have a track record... Simply put, lets cut the guy some slack and actually wait to see what happens hmm? EDIT: Not a comment on anyone specific (and if you feel that it is, i apologise, was n
  18. I feel a shrinking sensation in my wallet...
  19. Well, several months behind schedule, I'm happy to reveal the actual content of the above, I know that both of you will be very excited The model shown above is my newest 009 kit, the Ffestiniog 'England' locomotives!: Once again, this is a kit which is best described as more of a scratch-aid than anything else, but is designed to drop straight on to the 'Percy' chassis from the Thomas the Tank 'Tomix' range. The motor does protrude into the cab area. This is a 'one size fits all' model which can be used to represent any of the England engines
  20. Do we have an update on the progress of the deposits?
  21. £50.00 deposit paid for standard OO gauge model - I await the outcome of this project with great interest and anticipation...
  22. To be fair, it’s up to the individual to decide what will satisfy them enough to pay their money, and there is nothing wrong in them letting KR Models know that in a respectful manner (which I hope I did earlier in the thread). I for one do not have the money to lose on a crowdfunding project that doesn’t succeed for whatever reason, so I’m hesitant about handing over the cash until I know a bit more. in any case, it’s a good thing that KR is coming to RMWeb and I for one will be reading everything he puts on here in relation to this project to find something which will convince me
  23. I for one would very much like to hear more from KR Models directly, holding off on my deposit as I’m really not comfortable paying at this point. note: I’m not suggesting that anything iffy is going on here, but I haven’t been given enough confidence to hand over my money yet
  24. I'm perfectly happy to consider crowdfunding, but I personally would like a little more info (manufacturer name is the biggie) before I commit
