  1. Liquid Green Stuff is epoxy. I have trawled through a few reviews this morning. Opinion appears to be divided if not polarised. One of the more interesting and informative reviews: https://tangibleday.com/12-useful-gap-fillers-for-miniatures-review-and-tips/ The reviewer seems to provide a balanced view of the pros and cons of each product, so much so that I began to wonder if the list was actually in order of preference as it first seemed. I decided it was but only on the basis that the last few products seemed a little more general purpose and less useful as model fillers
  2. I made a note of the filler. Games Workshop, Citadel Paints, Liquid Green Stuff. There is also Vallejo 70.400 or 70.401 Liquid Filler.
  3. https://maccmodels.co.uk/ They still appear to be shipping abroad but I could only find brass sheet not nickel silver. eBay perhaps?
  4. Well within your abilities, Chris. I built one years ago. No idea where it is at the moment though so I can't provide a photo. However, I remember that I substituted short lengths of brass handrail for the pillars at the front corners of the cab as the plastic ones looked flimsy and not quite straight.
  5. Ian Rathbone (I think) recommends buying a cheap metal coach which can be stripped easily and repeatedly without damaging the material itself.
  6. This post from Mike Trice may be of interest: https://www.rmweb.co.uk/community/index.php?/topic/15815-using-a-ruling-pen/&do=findComment&comment=163644
  7. Well, that's disappointing. I was expecting individual bricks and a brief explanation of how you made the kiln.

  9. More chocolate paint here: https://www.wilko.com/en-uk/wilko-walls-ceilings-choc-dream-matt-emulsion-paint-25l/p/0220144
  10. If you haven't done so already, it might be worth asking here: http://canalbookshop.uk/ However, the only reference I could find was in their list of secondhand books which had the book Gordon Connell mentioned indicating it was published in 1997. So perhaps that was the first year of publication with a reprint in 1998?
  11. You could contact Tony Wright, Stu. He used to operate a loco clinic at exhibitions where he would fix things in exchange for donations to CRUK.
  12. And all from making glue. Who'd a thunk it?
  13. On top. It is an alternative to the traditional cork sheet. It might be cheaper to use plain 3mm foam but because this is self-adhesive it does not need the baseboards to be painted with PVA before laying. I have to admit that I do not yet have a working layout so I cannot directly testify to the sound deadening. However, Norman Solomon, who makes a living from laying track amongst other things uses 3mm foam stuck down with PVA and I have visited a sizeable layout which uses his trackwork and the main noise is that of wheels on rail rather than any drumming or reverberation which I find qu
  14. I found similar self-adhesive underlay a little cheaper (£29.50 delivered) on eBay. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Acoustic-Underlay-for-Solid-Wood-Floors-Self-Adhesive-Identical-to-Diall/181158311892 I have bought from this seller a couple of times and was happy with the service.
