  1. As long as it's 'solvent-free' you should be fine. they're all much of a muchness. Yes it is Ian (as far as I know). As long as it's not the messy 'expanded' stuff!
  2. I am/had considered it for Balcombe but for the lengths needed the cost would probably be prohibitive!
  3. I forgot to add that a 'dot and dab' application (a small dollop every six inches) does the job when bonding ply sheets to the stuff. The insulation material is just the best for baseboard construction (sorry, preaching to the converted!) I also use the offcuts for contour forming glued down and held in position by suitable length nails pressed in. For the land itself I use 'Sculptamold' which is a sort of dried papier-mache powder. Also very light.
  4. Pete, I used the solvent free type of 'Gripfill' on all the Balcombe boards and it does the job perfectly. https://www.screwfix.com/p/gripfill-solvent-free-white-350ml/64958?kpid=64958&ds_kid=92700031524367480&msclkid=c03ef8db37a417cf4bc4a545e040042f&utm_source=bing&utm_medium=cpc&utm_campaign=PX | Shopping | Sealants %26 Adhesives&utm_term=4583863977261225&utm_content=G - Adhesives&ds_rl=1245250&gclid=CK65spCQkeUCFUuDhQodT0ICMA&gclsrc=ds Allow it to set overnight or maybe a bit longer. I've used it for years on all my baseboards using 'Polyfoam' insulation board of some sort or another.
  5. Tim, they actually vary a little between the 'Pavilion' boards at 1300mm and the others at 1400mm. The viaduct is 6.8m (23ft) plus the 'running on' boards at 1400mm each.
  6. Tony, I thought that you might like to see a video of our insanely large P4 layout taken last week at Scaleforum. I Hope that I'm not intruding with some 'Southern' stuff! There's still much to be done on the viaduct and even more on the station side! This is a scratchbuilt 4-LAV using Worsley Works etches.
  7. was saddened when today at his eye test, upon wishing the excellent East European optometrist good wishes for the future was told that they were leaving because "we're not welcome here". A depressing day.

      My Polish dentist is very happy to stay here in one of the most strongly leave-voting areas of the country. He fits in, he does a valued job, as part of the almost wholly white British local community. He does not seem to have allowed himself to be misinformed about "not being welcome".

      #Melly - perhaps the decision of just one person doesn't make much difference in the greater scheme of things, but it is nonetheless unutterably sad that even that one person has felt that he isn't welcome in our country any longer. Someone or something has made him come to that decision. And that someone or something is symptomatic of what has been going wrong in our country in recent years.

       

      It's just not right and anyone with attitudes that have put this poor optometrist off staying here are most certainly not doing so in my name.

       

      #g.r.king  - I wonder then, exactly who or what is responsible for this optometrist feeling the way he does. Making a decision to move to another country is surely not something that anyone would take lightly. Good to hear that your dentist feels OK about continuing to live here, that is precisely how it should be.

       

  8. Rod and I are very grateful to CK for his splendid efforts in bog making. It's a splendid rendition which has captured the look of the small building albeit rather ornate with the lovely cupola. It is believed that it's now used as an S & T store. The stops from Mike Franks are a delight and Tim's weathering is excellent. CK to the rescue as time was rapidly running out before S4um! Still a mountain of work to be done!
  9. Lifted from the Scaleforum thread. Three rather wobbly videos of traffic over the OVV that were taken in 'off duty' moments!

    More work on the yard has been done. Pics taken before vacuuming up!
  12. This is nearly all static grass layers (with a couple of bits of seafoam added) topped off with fine ground foam from the 'Model Tree Shop' which is much finer than the 'Greenscene' stuff. Adding fine ground foam brings static grass to life. Photo taken before cleaning up was done! This is again is layered static grass fibres topped of with fine ground foam. The darker bit behind was some seafoam with static grass and ground foam added. It was started with 2mm fibres, then 4mm then some more 2mm in a lighter shade before finishing with the fine ground foam. This was all built up on a base of hanging basket liner.
  13. Many thanks all. Much appreciated.
  14. Advice please on tinning 28 swg/0.33mm spring steel wire please. I've tried various fluxes, Orange Label, Green Label and Copalux and conventional lead/tin solder with some limited success. I need to fix it to Sommerfeldt catenary posts which the hangers are copper plated steel. I ask it here because I can't find any thread specific to soldering. Maybe I've missed it somewhere. Thanks.
  15. It is. Both e-mails and the search engine are down. All very irritating if one is waiting for a parcel arrival notification. https://downdetector.co.uk/status/yahoo-mail
