  1. Except those current arrangements won't be the current arrangements post Brexit necessarily...
  2. Given the scale creep that has occurred over the years in tabletop miniatures perhaps it's worth looking at the current licensed range? https://store.warlordgames.com/collections/doctor-who
  3. They were an anachronism even when they introduced in not having automatic physical and MW coupling (the class 312's were the previous anomaly...).
  4. Or, if you went down the uprated engine route, you could displace units from the Aberdeen and Inverness routes and maybe have something that might actually not embarrass itself towards the top of Scotland...
  5. That's an urban myth, with it's roots in the US... https://www.thoughtco.com/chevy-nova-that-wouldnt-go-3078090 and... https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Opel_Corsa#Nova
  6. To be completely honest, not a clue. Looking at the size of the thing, there probably could be space for a pair, provided you're not packing too much else down there (cue list of all things that would need to be displaced...) so easier is probably adding one to a driving car and all those knock-on's as you said.
  7. Perhaps one of the intermediates is double engined? There might be room if said intermediate didn't have retention tanks (so no toilets), and that would keep the driving trailers with their floor levels etc as they are at current. But the scheme you're proposing might be better, especially if it allows for traction motors to be fitted to that driving trailer as well which would obviously have benefits.
  8. However, any point on the surface of a sphere is flat
  9. Very much the definition of flat under a central force like gravity
  10. HMRC have been very clear that UK raised crowdfunding efforts (in broad definition) are liable for VAT as it is income for the crowd-funder.
  11. I'd severely doubt that an Airfix MK2D would go around R2 curves coupled on the headstocks with Kadees but it would with them mounted in a CCM.
  12. I think the two of you are talking at cross purposes... melmerby is talking about using a close coupling mechanism, and you are talking about coupling the coaches close together which are two separate issues.
  13. The Bachmann EZ-Mate NEM couplings are your friend here as they have the coupling head solidly mounted rather than the Kadee arrangement, just a shame they only come in a single length (which is spot on for Bachmann MK2a/z as it turns out...).
  14. Well I suppose if you're dealing with a set of bad working practices then it may do. My expectation of 3D modellers/designers may somewhat differ I expect
  15. The body's basic dimensions and shape are unchanged, therefore editing those meshes would be a better starting point rather than starting from scratch.
