  1. I have a few packs of beautiful Tangley Transfers, one of which I've just used for lettering an H&BR horsebox. Does anyone know anything about them? Cheers Simon
  2. That looks fantastic Chris, a lovely little loco!
  3. Hi Are there any Hull and Barnsley loco and coach transfers available in 7mm scale? Cheers Simon
  4. So, generally in 7mm scale the rules are; if you scratchbuild something, then someone will bring out a kit and if you build the kit, then someone may eventually bring out a ready to run version. So I'm just waiting for one of these to arrive as r-t-r. This version of "The Lady Armstrong" is built from the excellent new Alphagraphix kit, with some extra detailing and using Slaters spare wheel centres for the jackshaft. It makes up to be a very nice looking little loco, ideal for a minimum space layout.
  5. Thanks Pete, I'll have a look! Cheers Simon
  6. Hi, I'm looking forward to refurbishing a slightly tired Hornby Rocket to run in the garden. Does anyone have a copy of the instruction leaflet and parts leaflet that I could have a look at? And also a source of rather more robust track than that supplied with the loco? Regards Simon

  8. Thanks people for the kind words about my books and it's great that you're interested in scratch-building! I have done a number of rather idiosyncratic Youtube videos introducing my scratch-building techniques in metal. It's a bit alarming to discover that they're 5 years old, and I do intend to carry on with them...sometime! The first one is here: I hope they might prove useful. Cheers Simon.
  9. Thanks for your replies; so a receiver has to have electric motor control for it to do what I want it to (12 locos is more than enough, thanks!). So, the RCT-Rx65c receiver/controller would be OK? Cheers Simon
  10. Does anyone have experience/recommendations/thoughts regarding RC Trains products? I was thinking of the Tx10 transmitter and RCT-Rx102 receiver for a small 7mm garden circuit and battery driven tank locos? Cheers Simon
  11. I use the P4 axles to test for good running with Markits wheels before fitting Gibsons/Ultrascale with a GW press...usually works...though not always! A bit of final tweaking can work wonders. Cheers Simon
