  1. Banning what ? if someone wants buy them thats their choice. My response was to your comment re painting wheels, some would read that if thats the only defect, and then go and buy some without looking any further at the listings , people do some daft things at times , some all the time !! Some of the faults listed are not simple repairs, for anyone who is not a competent modeller.
  2. Only if you ignore the ones with a loose roof , loose glazing , paint smudges and bogies with no detail . Ohh!! nearly missed the ones with broken footboards !!! . These are via Heljan's factory, not a good advert, for any future productions.
  3. Many thanks , very useful. I have just looked at the Wizard site , no trace of Ferry Tie Downs ??
  4. JW Re the Unit Containers . I have just made up a Cambrian one plank for my last two Containers. I have tried them and they fit, it only needed the bottom line of single corner rivets to be removed on one side. That area once fitted will be hidden. Re roping. Where do you source the Metal rings from ? Its not obvious from the photos were the bottom of the rope runs attach to too on the wagon please ? Many thanks as usual !
  5. Not my photo. I never looked at the "other" photo that closely, I never even saw the Tender was in the photo.
  6. The original Tender has the corners cut away etc, totally different from the LNER design as in the photo. See here, including the same photo of 2404. https://www.lner.info/locos/A/a2.php
  7. Two open high sided wagons with ladders ? No idea what they are !
  8. D13 horrid things . Motor needed will depend on the kit.
  9. If you can find a Nucast J24 or J25 body/kit , they ran on the same chassis/ wheel size as the J26/27 , ok, they are 2mm shorter wheelbase on the prototype. However it may be even closer than that , on the Oxford chassis ,when it does finally arrive, same Tenders again as well.
  10. ,Front driver loose or buckled ? It done well to shift that lot if either condition is correct !!.
  11. Build thread here https://www.lner.info/forums/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=10343&hilit=mountain
  12. Thanks Jonathan, I look forward to the pictures. I presume they are held down by the same/similar shackle method , as the LNER method ? I have managed to get four of the repainted to LNER Unit versions to fit onto the Parkside Conflat S . They are just being finished at the moment.
  13. Can anyone assist re LMS Containers please?. Goggle search has produced very little information. I have a couple of the Unit Models A Type LMS Containers that need something to run on . So far the only suitable wagon I have found, is the Cambrian Plastic kit of a One Plank LMS Wagon. Would these be able to carry two of these Containers ? Any other suggestions/photos please ? Thanks
  14. Use a Surface Gauge to create the straight lines.
