Re: Caley Jumbo modern kit proposed

: Just a small update regarding this kit. Pete advises that there was a delay due to sorting out the fineries of the casting for the flared coping on the tender (this also applies to the Scott 4-4-0 which is ahead of the Jumbo in the production queue). This has now been ironed out so we should see t...

Re: Beer and Buckjumpers

Flymo,

Many thanks for that - most entertaining and enlightening, and given me a few ideas to try on my 'plank' now that the first point is nearing compleation.....

I agree a drop of silicoln lubricant would work wonders and should not gum up the works.

Morning Gents (and Ladies too) Does anyone have a copy of the fully sprung deltic article that appeared in MRJ 188 that they can let me have a look at? Am contemplating going down this route in the future and want to do a bit of re-search.... Failing that, i will look for a back issue. Cheers. Churc...

DJH 8F

Hi guys. I've had a chance of a DJH 8F kit coming my way if I want it-how difficult is this to convert to P4? And to add CSB's to it? Would it require a new chassis or can the original be altered to suite? Wanted to see if anyone else has had experience of one of these before I spend quite a bit on ...

Masokits RTR conversion

Hello Guys, I'm contemplating a few wagons (already got the lochgorm kits LNER CovB on the shelf, with the masokits sprung W irons) and was wondering about parkside kits. Liking how the sprung W irons went together from masokits (so simple, but very effective), is it wise to try and use these with p...

Class 47 Chassis

Hi Guys, I'm a newly converted modeller to P4 from N gauge. One of the things that has attracted me to P4 is the ability to heavily modify old RTR bodies and the variety of kits to build. To this extent, im keen to see just how good an old 47 body can be made, and am interested in a chassis to put u...
