I don't model in n gauge anymore but liked the front cover so much thought i would get a copy. Good news is you can do guest checkout on ebay which i did not realise was an option till just now as i quit ebay some time back.

 

I didn't realise you'd given up on N gauge, but thanks for buying a copy and I hope you enjoy it. Perhaps it might even help tempt you back.

Hi Grahame,

 

Are there any more available? I just checked on Ebay (UK) and couldn't find anything. I was hoping to get one delivered for my daughter to bring back to the US for me.

 

Thanks,

 

John P

Eyesight and fat fingers were the ultimate decision and in truth I think I am managing to achieve a better level of modelling by going up a scale but it doesn't mean I don't miss the sight of a full length freight train creeping through the landscape. My kids both have small n gauge layouts still though so it hasn't left the building.

I have problems with both now, but using strong glasses and fine tweezers I am still able to keep going for now.

Yep, I also found that larger scales didn't make my fat fingers any thinner and that the size of the smallest parts are the same as the smallest parts in the smaller scales - just that there's a lot more of them in the larger scales. But as you say I tend to use tools for manipulating and holding parts rather than fingers, although care is necessary to stop them pinging off in to the distance. 

 

I'm also lucky in being very myopic that I can simply hold the models very close to me eyes without glasses for clear vision - which is a lot easier with smaller and lighter models.

 

But each to their own and what they find best. Stay safe and carry on modelling.

I am enjoying the magazine very much,  any plans for another edition?

 

Thanks. I'm pleased people have enjoyed it. The eBay feedback has been particularly complimentary and welcome.

 

Unfortunately I've no plans for another edition, although never say never. But currently nothing in hand or anything considered.

Perhaps another edition when London  Bridge is finished? This is something I wish more people did, almost like a return to the days of zines - only today with modellers producing their own publications showcasing their work. Imagine how popular a while zine dedicated to Copenhagen Fields would be…
