  1. Looking for some advice please. I have a couple of yards of Peco n gauge code 80 flexi track that I would like to use to create a pizza layout using a 8" radius What's the best method to bend the track to ensure that i can get a round circle? I have in the past never been able to make a satisfactory circle. Hopefully some one can advise please. Thanks Johna
  2. Folks I want to clad a Petite properties building in brick embossed plastikard but am unsure the method to use for doing the sides. Do I cut out 3 pieces and just butt them together or is if possible to bend the plastikard around the edge of the building without o damaging the sheet and brickwork? Also when cutting out the windows and doors to get a straight edge is it best practice to cut them from the back of the plastikard or vice versa? Thanks
  3. I have a n gauge electrofrog point but it doesn't have the thin wire for powering the frog to a microswitch. Is it possible to add the wire and where is the best place to solder it too.? Thanks Johna
  4. Adrian Thanks for your reply and the measurements. Its a cracking layout. Johna
  5. Hi Adrian, Just found your wonderful micro layout. Those Series 3 landrovers bring back so many memories when i worked with them 40 years ago. Can I ask what size is the layout and use some of your ideas and track plan please? Johna
  6. Would anyone have a copy of the template that's used for mounting the Peco PL- 1000 point motor please? Thanks Johna
  7. Work has started repairing the damage to the layout. I have repainted the background and will be adding new greenery and wooden fences. I am starting to acquire new locos and rolling stock. Johna
  8. I am really enjoyed the exhibition yesterday and have even entered some competitions. I am following Phil Parker's build of Ferness Quay but what I would like to know is the length of each siding as I would like to have a go at building it myself. Cheers Johna
  9. Hi Would 6mm plywood be too thin for making a oo gauge baseboard.? I haven't been able to get out due to Covid-19
  10. I built this a while ago and it's nearly the same track plan. I have a shuttle timer fitted but haven't gotten any further as I couldn't decide what buildings to use.
  11. I am looking a power supply to use with Peco point motors and was wondering if I can use one from an old laptop?. I think it's 19v. Johna
  12. What would be the acceptable distance between the edge of the platform and inner rail in N gauge please?. I seem to recall 10mm but just want to check. Thanks Johna
  13. Hi Like most folks, I am finding Peco products hard to find so would anyone have or know where I could get a SL-E91 code 100 RH point please? Thanks Johna
  14. I am about to enter the magical mysterious world of using Das Clay for my industrial set layout. Basically I am covering the tracks and surrounding area with Clay so has anyone any tips or advice to make sure it sticks to the board and how do you get an overall flat finish? Thanks Johna
