Re: Right Track DVD series

You forgot the 4 extra Right Track DVD's that focus on particular layouts. ;) Granted they arn't instructional but still part of the series. I collected the lot when they were current although the 2nd scenery DVD has a fault on some copies where it won't play all the way through so had to buy a 2nd ...

Re: DCC Gremlins

Ah well, sorted it. Replaced the Hornby loco chip with a DCC Concepts Zen Black Mini V12.

Now it doesn't interfere with the point motors. Still no idea why it was happening but there you go.

DCC Gremlins

'Ello! :thumb I got the most illogical issue with this DCC layout I'm building. It is Z21 powered with Circuitron Smail point motors. Knapford Junction section of the layout is wired and working....except I did have an issue with Gordon the other week. It is a Hornby A1 Great Northern chassis (with ...

Re: Sparkshot MR wagon

Hello, glad they got there safe, can't really help with the brake gear although I own the same book. The bit of twist can be ironed out by running under hot water, gently teasing it then setting with cold. Before painting there are a variety of cleaning methods that everyone argues over.

Re: SCC - Sparkshot Custom Creations

Cleaning up 3D prints in areas is fairly normal though. Until we get to injection moulded quality it'll be the norm. Those pics are from 2018 so modern prints might be different now. It's the usual orientation factor no doubt. It's the 3 plank that looks the worst there. Bit of a scrub would sort it...

Re: SCC - Sparkshot Custom Creations

I got some photo's of the S scale prints in FUD/SFDP.

Printed some on the Photon too although I'm not entirely happy with the anoying line that insists on forming on these wagons when printed on Photon which is why for now they are just on Shapeways.

Will upload in 5 or so minutes.

Re: SCC - Sparkshot Custom Creations

As well as working on the 812 tender and other bits, also doing a few commissions,

Progress on the USA Scotty is coming along nicely, ultimately it is being done as the client wants a H0 model but it's agreed to release things in 4mm too.

Re: Plywood disaster

Start again - it's essential that you get your baseboard right. I find 9mm ply fine when braced. Paint or varnish both sides, then I suggest you use cork rather than foam for the trackbed - I've heard too many stories about problems with foam whileas good old cork is tried, tested and generally fou...

Thanks. :) For the 00 one I will be using Peco Bullhead where possible though. Still RT-Plonk track.....just a wee better than the H0. Not full blown fine-scale.
