  1. It's made from some of my own etches, the underframe detail for mine was scratch built, but Jason (who this is for) will 3D print his. The roofs on mine were cast in resin from a master I made, but the mould was only really good enough for the amount I wanted so this one has a scratchbuilt one from plasticard. Had I known I'd require more of them I would have remade the mould. I also made a master for the bogie sides and cast those in resin as well. I'm pleased with how these built up but I have yet to paint and line them, it is complicated lining so Jason has prepared some drawing
  2. It's definately Sandy, The photographer is standing in the 4' of the 'Up' LNWR. It's dated post the 1st Jan 1968 closure and with the goods shed gone but the station building still standing probably sometime in 1969.
  3. Just looking back at the discussion regarding tumblehomes, I found the easiest way is to build straight sided stock. This is one of the GN American built Pullmans. This isn't finished yet as it has some more underframe detail to add as well as bogie sides and roof vents, but it's new owner will be doing that as he is a whizz with 3D and has his own printer. I've also only just ordered some more screws from Phil at Hobby Holidays to fix the roof down, hence the gap. After building 4 of my own I said 'never again' ..... the things you do for mates....
  4. You're correct Stephen, but I thought I'd type it so the majority of the posters understood
  5. The GN and the library is 60-70% pre-grouping books. I do have a book on Pacifics, as apparently there were more built after 4470....
  6. Well I thought they were some interesting photographs. I didn't see a problem with them, All threads drift and deviate a little.
  7. Easiest is to load it to Youtube then link it to here. Lovely stock
  8. I'm sure one of those had trials on the Oxford to Cambridge line. Just checked and it was a similar vehicle https://www.warwickshirerailways.com/lms/lnwrcov3764.htm
  9. I've used the Halfords etch primer without any problems. I have noted that a couple who have had problems tended to want it to dry really quickly so put it in the airing cupboard/on top of radiator. But the longer it takes to dry the more it etches into the metal so I keep it cool.
  10. Beware photocopying, Make sure the copier is set to 100% as lots copy at 97%.
  11. If for whatever reason they don't have enough, whose order should they cut to fulfil yours ?
  12. I remember the derailment in the early 80's as they shunted a train into the depot. I was on the Up platform and saw a tank slowing leaning over, but what worried me more was the 20+ stone shunter running towards me.... ....so much on the move, and a lot of it uncoordinated.
  13. Yeh...and I bet it was manna...
  14. Yep! The highest I have seen a D&S 8W brake go for is £110. There are silly prices for D&S on Ebay, but when you delve into it there are just a few bidders with very big pockets who seem to thrive on outbidding to win.
