  1. I do 3D print the majority of SCC items on my own printers now. Got two Photon's and a Mars 2 currently and once the top shed is renovated (lots of progress made at last) will be buying bigger hardware. please send email to: [email protected] if you're interested in prints, my designs or otherwise. If you mean will I be buying a FUD/FXD/SFDP - Polyjetting Shapeways' style machine, the answer is I'd hope to one day but I'm a LOOOONG way off being able to afford one. Maybe ye could all crowd fund it, doubtful! But yes, it's a goal amongst others.
  2. Ooh! That's rather fetching must say. Defo works. "shpiffin!"

Been so busy."""" Yeah this is a major issue since the changes. We need a UK 'Shapeways' badly. I'd like to buy a machine to do FUD/FXD/SFDP yet the cheapest are typically £6-10,000 as I've seen. :-/

  5. Absolutely banging. Really brings them to life convincingly.

  7. Signed petition and posted it on Twitter also, might get some relavant exposure. Highways England: Absolute Cock-Wombles. :-/
  8. I got similar problem. For ages the 4 pin decoders have been out of stock so once they were I brought 2 incase one popped. How does it run? Absolute crap. Stall, start to move, stall, moves a bit stall. Pushes it along by hand, starts to get to speed, stall. Change directon? Stalls 80% the time. Utter tripe. Wheels n track were cleaned pre conversion so it isn't them. I've put it back to standard DC where it actually DOES perform good for a wee 0-4-0. Hornby, what are you playing at? A novelty hard to get 4 pin is bad enough but when it runs this unreliably why even bother, couldn't you have designed things for extra room and a stay alive to be part of the chip? Maybe I and previous poster are just unlucky and others' are working fine, this sort of thing isn't uncommon. Got to find a workaround. Not fun.
  9. Ah, that café : ) Was a nice day that.
  10. Can print some S items here although some (at the moment) have to be Shapeways only as they have bigger printers. If interested though please send email at [email protected] and can have a look. That said I recently brought a Elegoo Mars 2 along side the 2 Photons and it has a bit more print space. The big printer/s will have to wait until the top shed is renovated though. -- Must say I'm really looking forward to seeing some of those loco's completed.
  11. This is pretty cool to see Maybe this could be my entry point to DCC sound. Converted a few loco's to DCC yet no sound thus. Mint.
  12. This 'sold' on ebay yet the buyer apparently made a mistake so it's relisted. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/265035424195
  13. Good helpful post. Had my eye on a Mono X for many a month. Only thing stopping me is the top shed needs renovation to house things, something about evicting spiders, kevlar and mud.
