  1. Hi Wayne, Apologies for not responding earlier, I've just been catching up. Thanks for everyone's explanations to my question, makes sense of course. I saw you had Brighton on rmweb but it's a surprise you're so close. Yes I'd like to arrange a visit if the offers still on, can I pm you? Phil B.
  2. Hi all, very interesting and a great review. I'm curious to know what the rectangular box of sleepers are for half way along? Apologies if this has already been answered but they do spoil the effect of a scale turnout. Cheers, Phil B.
  3. Bill Bedford now lists the Ironclad pull/push set sides on his site with a 6 - 8 week delivery. Love this thread, so inspiring and informative. Phil B. Stay safe / keep modelling.
  4. Hi Richard, will an EM1 fit both the Dapol class 52 and the Bachmann class 42? I was wondering if it could go in the class 42 tanks? Phil B.
  5. Brilliant service Richard - ordered 2 speakers and Kapton tape Saturday and they arrived this morning. Couldn't be better, thank you. Getting ready to order more now having watched some of your videos. Best wishes, Phil.
  6. Hi Richard, do this pair have the same depth of sound as the em2 and what do you think about using a double iPhone? Phil
  7. Tony, that's excellent info. Thanks very much. Especially that photo of the chassis etch as it gives the FC number which Squires are telling me doesn't exist. Now if only I can convince them to find one and sell it to me! Under previous circumstances a phone call to Dave at SEF would have secured a chassis and the other spares I was hoping to get in no time at all. Thanks again that's everything I needed, now I can move on confidently. Phil B.
  8. Tony, a further thought - is the chassis in 30531 a Finecast etch as I believe they can be built compensated? Cheers, Phil.
  9. Hi Tony, yes that does help as I was under the impression that the kit was compromised in the wheel spacing to suit the RTR chassis. I've measured the loco kit body and compared it to the drawing in Russell's book and it measures well agains it. So I'm confident now that the etched chassis are correct - if I can get one!! Squires don't know much about the Finecast range they've taken on, relying on outdated lists. So I'll probably have to wait a while till they get to grips with it. Best wishes Phil B.
  10. Hi Phil, why PM? That info would be good for the rest of us interested in this conversion. Take care and stay safe, Phil B.
  11. Thanks Jack, I must try and get them. Take care, stay safe, Phil B.
  12. Hi Dave, Thanks, it is a help because you've stopped me wondering what you did. You come up with good ideas and ways of doing things - like the removable cab interior - and that inspires me find my own solutions. Keep it up. All the best, Phil B.
  13. Hi Dave, apologies for going back to an old topic but I've just got my Q class kit out and I always check out your loco builds as I always find them helpful and inspiring. With the Q a couple of questions come to mind. Is the etched chassis the generic one SEF produced to replace the Triang/Hornby chassis (FC106) or is it a new one with correct wheel spacing? (Is that FC202?) Also I noticed you don't mention filling that gap in the bottom of the boiler or cab details so I was wondering what you did about them? I hope you don't mind me asking, especially as it's so long ago. Stay safe and best regards, Phil B.
  14. Like those tank wagons Jack, what make are they please? My interest is Southern in the South West too, I'm enjoying following this thread. Cheers and stay safe, Phil B.
  15. Ah, that's good to hear Richard. It's always great and satisfying to run the first trains, pleasure after the carpentry. I'm still at the carpentry stage myself, on hold due to winter and decorating bedrooms!!! I'll follow the new blog. Kind regards, Phil B.
