Hi Steve, I've been using them diluted with water for many years, but they have their own thinner that seemed to improve their resistance to scratches. I always use a matt varnish coat to protect them. They also do washes, with many shades available. I've not yet used them, but I preferred Citadel w...

Re: "old" flat bottom track

Hi Andrew, I also have an ancient prototype (~1915) that uses flat bottom, being set in Spain. I did a prototypically accurate straight track using the hot glue method and wood sleepers, and it worked well. Some of the joints were not very strong and I reinforced them with cyano. Them I tried the sa...

Re: CHEAG tonight!

Hi Paul,

I will try to go tonigh, even against the wind (which is quite strong and in the wrong direction)...

I will bring a "cardboard model" of my engine chassis I did to try to understand how to build it. I hope to dissipate some of the doubts I still have.

Hi Carlos, Wizard Models sell 18" buffer heads in steel. The spindle is 1mm diameter. If this is not enough then you can simply sleeve it with some brass tube. I hope that you are able to post some photos of your loco on here as the build progresses. Thanks for the help, James. In that case, t...

Hi John, Thanks for opening that thread. I am working, very slowly, on my tank engine to Iberian gauge (22 mm in P4).
