  1. Cheers Kat- ill probably try and find some middle ground but I guess what im trying to say is that im going to slow down a bit and not go at 100 miles an hour all the time .... the small bits are usually the most important ones .... Ben
  2. Right little update for you guys and girls out there on the RCS Coaches and the postage charges .....

  10. The RCS coaches are on the Hattons site - just search via coaches and select Era 11 and they appear .... pre-ordered some myself
  11. Hi all - am in the process of respraying a Class 90 into RfD Livery ... have sprayed the lower bodyside Rail Grey and referring to the Fox Transfers Paint Guide - it says the upper bodyside should be flint grey but looking at the pictures - it seems darker ..... What do you guys use ?? Ben

  19. Well Everyone its that time of year again ..... Going to be a bit different for a lot of people this year ........ The workbench has been packed away and I just want to take this opportunity to thank each and every one of you for your support this year in what has been a difficult year for everyone in so many ways.....
