  1. Very nice indeed Captain, hope I can do as good a job on the D15!
  2. Ok, current "state of play". Some photos taken in a hurry (poor lighting, wrong white-balance etc) Still a few bits to add: Clack valves (when I'm sure I don't need to remove the boiler again) cab doors, union-link retainer (and shorten the pin) and steam-turret/manifold (on order from SEFinecast) and some last-minute paintwork touch-ups. But you get the drift.
  3. Sorry for lack of updates, but the final detailing is taking FOREVER!!!
  4. A friend of mine is building Gazelle in 0-gauge, and struggling to motorise it.
  5. Yes, they are now being made from stainless. Never had any "issues" with Markits myself. Cheers, Dave.
  6. Missing from the kit are the mechanical lubricators, in the photos they look like a square box with a lid and a wheel on the front. Remembering I had some very small etched handwheels stashed in the "that will, come in useful one day" section, I've had a go at making some. The raw materials: a whitemetal sprue, approx 3mm square, left over from (I think) a Peco narrow gauge coach kit, and the set of etched wheels, covers etc. The whitemetal squared-up, a brass "lid" soldered on and the ends drilled: The smallest handwheels soldered to a brass rod:
  7. Interesting topic, I have a Unimat 3 that I haven't used very much. Yet! Cheers, Dave.
  8. Thanks very much Doug, just had a look and they do it in 7mm too. Cheers, Dave.
  9. The Ralls & Sons coal wagon is very good, what did you use for the lettering on it? Many thanks, Dave.
  10. Hello Ian, Good to catch up with all the activity on the AFK. Best wishes, Dave.T
  11. Thanks for that, sounds a bit drastic/over the top for a few wheel treads! There is news (of a sort) on this thread: https://www.rmweb.co.uk/community/index.php?/topic/110864-chemical-blackening-of-steel/
  12. Hi Martyn, I'm looking for a stainless steel blackener, as Markits wheels are now being made from stainless instead of Nickel Silver. Just checked that out that link; now its here: https://www.caswelleurope.co.uk/metal-patina-process/?sort=featured&page=2 One litre is a bit too much just for a few wheels, especially at £72! Any idea if can it be had in smaller quantities? Cheers, Dave.
