  1. I just did these as a rigid chassis but have recently been working on something else which I'm looking at using High Level CSB's on. What was the problem ?
  2. It's a superb layout and well worth catching at a show. I hear the stock boxes are very good quality too...
  3. It's a 3D print used to check the CAD.
  4. Very enjoyable and worked my through quite a bit of content (inbetween decorating) finished by watching Giles create a radio controlled Bedford TK.....mind boggling..
  5. Electrical outlets have to be a minimum of 450mm from the floor and a maximum of 1200mm high, mounted above the 'worktop' and below the wall units shouldn't be an issue. Using kitchen carcasses is a good idea but kitchen worktop isn't suitable for a baseboard. It's very expensive, heavy and too thick for our purposes. It will also bow if not supported. I would think about fitting the base units then running some 2"x 2" batten across the top at front and rear to carry the baseboards, as the rear of the base units won't have any support material and the front is only a thin strip of chipboard as a fascia. On top of that I would ount some traditional ply built baseboards and leave a gap at each end to the wall, they can then be easily split (moving the others aside) and flipped up to work on. I would devise a prop or stay that can clamp to the wall units to hold them while you wire etc.
  6. What are you looking at building and what gauge ? Planty of suppliers out there with stock. I'd edit the title of the thread as it's just your name, click edit on your post above and it will give you access to change the thread title to something more apt.
  7. Completely different situation with your utility supplier. They supply energy/water/gas in advance and you pay for the amount that you use over a clearly defined period of time. This is covered by a defined contract with the terms of use and charging in advance. You're not strictly a 'creditor' either as you have given KR a 'deposit' and this is non refundable should you change your mind. You only get your money back if the model is cancelled as you have agreed to receive a model at the end in lieu of your deposit. If the model is faulty then you can exchange it, but if it has an inherent design fault you don't get your money back as you funded and were party to the production of the model. You cannot escape the fact,that you (and others) have by definition funded the company and it's first locomotive by funding them in advance and taking the risk......Crowdfunding.
  8. You might Colin, but that's not actually the case.
  9. Technically it's both. If you've paid for the model in advance so that production could proceed you're a crowdfunder, Without monies paid in advance the model wouldn't have proceeded.
  10. I'm reminded of the film 'Personal services' with Julie Walters.....I've got some hardwood that needs buffing...
  11. Welcome Nicholas C. I'm guessing the site is this one http://www.fairfordbranch.co.uk/Witney_Goods.htm Andy Y (Mod) prefers to link to the source of pictures rather than copying and posting them. A really good source of info , and a class 22.....what's not to like
  12. You're not being fired again are you....... You can get van bodies easier than a brake.
  13. Not so far as is known. Descriptions of trains passing through Sandy in the 1800's were of them in the 80's with the regulator full open. I often wonder that some drivers actually pushed the regulator so far it went 360 degrees back to normal stops.
  14. The GN loved slips both double and single, if you take Sandy as an example there were 8 double and single slips spread across the yards and running lines. I say fit it.
  15. That looks good, hopefully won't be too long before the re-draw comes back. There should have been the label holders on the etch, (I'm sure I put them on there) Also I must figure out a way to produce multiple roof's. I've looked at getting them swaged in brass but so far the cost is prohibitive unless I'm building a 1000 coaches.
  16. Every day is an inspiration. Such a superb quality of work on this thread I look forward to reading it.
  17. On the last list (?) from Dan the D265 & D268 were £25 + P&P. £55 is a bit steep but if he's willing to haggle it's worth a try. I Produce my own in small numbers (it's an extension of the stock I want for myself) and the price would probably be around £25 for a 6 wheeler, and that would be without castings.
  18. Probably 5 years ago. As above you have to be a Gold member, then you can list an Ad for free.
  19. Dan has not sold the etched coach range on, he was still issuing lists a couple of times a year up to 2 years ago but has family commitments that preclude this at present. The whitemetal wagon range went to ABS some years ago and some of the other brakes etc went to London Road Models and are available. Hopefully some of the ex GN wagon range will reappear with someone now Adrian isn't with us anymore, (I was unable to obtain it a couple of years ago)
