  1. Stunning work! A beautiful bit of scratchbuilding and they really look "right". JF
  2. Aw Steve, those ground signals are absolutely gorgeous. Beautiful work JF
  3. Its all appreciated Stephen. There's quite a lot of the catalogue printed in David Smith's book too... JF
  4. It certainly does look a little skinny. I may have to look into an etch of GWR subsidiary fittings and arms in the future.
  5. I very much see your point on this! I did look at quite a few pictures but I found several showing slightly different positions. The MSE S I used is all I had in stock and looked right at the time.. I think that was the picture I used eventually....
  6. Believe me, I'd really love to but it would require a complete re-jig to get it right. I can't just re-size it as is because it would become too delicate. I'm a bit too loaded up with 7mm work to start going down the 4mm route I'm afraid.....
  7. So.. Time for an update. I've been busy at the bench and the computer so there's a new etch or two to see.. This is the BR(W) version of the 2 doll bracket for tubular WR style signals It differs from the available etches in that the main post is positioned in between the two dolls. It features fold up construction and marks for punching out the rivets. Also provided is the diagonal T section support. A test build.. So what did muggins then go and do?

  9. Lovely simple power bogie. Very nice JF
  10. I've produced an etch for the LMS ground signal. I have always struggled with the available cast whitemetal version and this one was designed with buildability, operation and illumination in mind. The open "Lid" at the top will be folded down and soldered once an LED is fitted and working. The test build went rather well, so the production version will be available to buy in about 6 weeks JF
  11. Now these are a blast from the past! 9 years ago, I started this thread with the intention of building 4 of these Alan Gibson LBSCR coaches. I built and finished 2 of them...... Sooo, its about time I got stuck into the other 2 I suppose The chassis' are complete for all four so "all" I have to do is complete the bodies. As supplied, nothing is provided in the kit to represent the guttering so some lengths of 1.5mm x 1.5mm brass angle were used for this job. Door bumpers were added from 0.8mm brass were. Next to be added were al
