  1. Thanks Tom....It's funny you should say that......JCL has been helping me (well doing all the work really) on a simple web presence where I can put all the details of the etches as well as some build pics and basic (Mike Trice said 'sparse' ) instructions. Thank you Jonathan, that's brilliant.
  2. There are reports in Steam railway & Heritage Railway.
  3. I tried this one Frank. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Premium-Ultrasonic-PCB-Cleaning-Fluid-and-Flux-Remover-Free-U-K-Postage/221986529977?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&var=520861707842&_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2648 I figured as it's a PCB cleaner and can deal with flux it seemed the most likely candidate, I give the items a really good rinse after the bath.
  4. Been a while as I've had a lot of other things to do (House move, GNRS renewals, hair and make up...) but I've still found time to sit at the bench and test build some etches. Further back in the thread were the D321 Post van and the D323 4W van, I had a small issue with the artwork for the D323 so this has been corrected and is being re-done. I have also done the artwork for the D319 Postal Van, A D319 & D321 were coupled permanantly to make a D320 so it's a make 2 get one free for that one. Also across the bench has been the updated Banana Van (D343) with the help
  5. Watch a Chinese ear picking vid on youtube.........I've no idea why, but I found myself watching one at 1am a few weeks ago.
  6. I'm not sure how much you intended putting in but just one set of braces per side is enough to keep it square, especially if you are going to use OSB either inside or out. If you think about modern timber framed houses they just use the OSB and nothing else. Looking good
  7. I originally thought it was based on the real 'Minories' which is the roadway under the end of Fenchurch St Station. https://www.google.co.uk/maps/dir//Online+Chem+House,+105a+Minories,+Tower,+London+EC3N+1LA/@51.5109787,-0.0751767,77m/data=!3m1!1e3!4m8!4m7!1m0!1m5!1m1!1s0x4876034bec940001:0xcd0342976b22318e!2m2!1d-0.0752623!2d51.5109388 And not far from the 4D model shop
  8. That's because some threw money in the pot...
  9. The lighting rig and sofa to the right give the impression they're used for 'Artistic' filming......so I'm told by others with more knowledge of the matter....
  10. I had a pair of 4 beds under construction and the scaffolders were very slow to shift their gear when we wanted it down, it was obvious I was being used for cheap storage and they didn't want to strike it until they had another job for it to go to. The easy remedy was to send them a message saying a group of travellers were on site telling me they were to take it down and could they confirm before I let them start. A lorry turned up about 30 minutes later with 2 blokes and it was gone within 24 hours.
  11. Time Left: 22 days and 15 hours

    • FOR SALE
    • USED - unboxed, modified and evidence of use

    A house move means I'm having to reduce the amount of stuff I have. Rather than just bin them these might be useful to someone. Modern railways Pictorial. 3,4,5,6 & 7 1981 - May, June , July August, October, November December. 1982 Feb, March May-December. 1983 Jan - Dec (full year) 1984 January, February, March, June, July & August I've put them at 50p each, I'll give the money to our local Need project The weight of these is 6kg so would have to be a courier.


  12. Your original quoted delivery schedule on the prospectus you put out was Dec 2019, you repeated this date when asking for investors money. That date was before the Pandemic which is the reason you give for the delay. Had you properly researched not only the prototype but the factory and its drive train and working practices before commiting to production you might have given a very different date in the first place. I actually spoke to you at Warley and suggested that it was too tight a timescale but you dismissed my comment, I said at the time that there were too many variables to comm
  13. If we're going to play Top trumps over whether someone has enough experience to post on topics I'll raise you. Self employed for 30+ years, owned own companies for 20+ years. This gave me money to part fund as well as fully fund several products to come out of this and other Chinese factories, as well as other projects that didn't come to fruition. So given your opening statement, why do you think you have enough facts to comment on other posters.
  14. I realise that comment was 6+ months ago but I actually found the book in question while packing stuff ready for a move. I remember now the talk in Milton Keynes was by Colin Garratt who was one of the authors of the book in question.
