  1. Well to be fair, I did get some help from RMWebbers with this one, who were kind enough to share their knowledge with me. This shows the power of this forum and the marvelous spirit of the members. I also would respectfully suggest that we all buy BRM, even if just occasionally, to show our appreciation for the provision of this genuinely useful facility provided without charge. (I won't say free, because very few things in life are actually free).
  2. I have previously used these whitemetal axleboxes with brakes from ABC models, but I seem to be having problems getting them now. Is this company still going and do they still make them? What alternatives are there? Many thanks for your help.
  3. As a professional modeller I don't comment on other people's work in public. Some people may think your work is awesome and that's fine with me, but I still think it is better if you let other people be the judge. Also, my comments aren't negative, but helpful advice. If you title your posts differently on this British forum then you will get a better response.
  4. I can't say I like the description, which I think many would find immodest. I think it up to others to decide if your video/content is awesome or not.
  5. Thank you for all your replies to this topic, they have been most helpful, but if I could impose upon you one more time please. The model comes with approx 12mm diameter wheels, but I note that many coaches run on approx 14mm wheels. Which would be more appropriate for a 4 wheel coach? As usual, thank you in advance for your help.
  6. This is the Hornby model of a four wheel coach. I have a few questions about it: - Is it based on any prototype? - Can it be made into a decent model? - have you any examples? - What milage is there in running a set of these on an industrial layout? - Are there any alternatives? Many thanks in anticipation of your replies.
  7. The buddleia bushes are homemade, but everything else in the two dioramas are off the shelf items. You don't need any special tools either.
  8. You can find out how to build this scene in this month's BRM (July): And this one in an upcoming issue:
  9. Hi guys, I confess that I don't know much about industrial railways, so perhaps you could help me out... Did any industrial railways run passenger trains? (for their workforce perhaps?). If so, what type of carriages were used and what is available in 4mm scale? What were passenger facilties like? I would presume that these would be pretty rudimentary. Many thanks.
  10. Nice to meet you today Dave. Love your layouts and thanks for taking this one to Wakefield. Nice to see you've shaved the beard and moustache off!
  11. The wall and the tree will appear in future BRM 'how to' articles.
  12. Find out how to make this class 31 in the current issue of BRM (July). Part two of the article, on painting and weathering, will be in the September issue.
