  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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
  4. 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.
  5. Tony, a further thought - is the chassis in 30531 a Finecast etch as I believe they can be built compensated? Cheers, Phil.
  6. 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 Squires don't know much about the Finecast range they've taken on, relying on outdated lists.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.
  7. 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.
  8. Thanks Jack, I must try and get them. Take care, stay safe, Phil B.
  9. 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.
  10. 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.
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. Hello 30368, did this layout progress? I've just come across it and it looks very promising. As a fellow SR modeller at the baseboard stage I'm interested to see more. I hope you are safe and well, Phil B.
  14. Thanks Duncan, I'll look foreward to the photos. Know what you mean about clouds and mojo - I've been there recently myself. (it's a returning feeling periodically, espesially this time of year for me) I try to find something simple to atchieve to help me. Just getting a Finecast T9 out to build - shouldn't be too hard! Phil.
  15. Hi Kitman, are you still needing these instructions? I have one of these unstarted tucked away in the loft with instructions. If your not in a hurry I could probably find it in a few days. We're currently moving stuff arround for redecorating so it's a bit of a jumble. I'm happy to scan them and send as an Email attachment if you like? Stay safe & well, Phil.
