This project will be pushing my comfort zone a little but that's exactly what you need if your skills are to develop.

Re: Rumney Models clasp brake underframe

I also have a few of these to do though admittedly a slight deficit of confidence is preventing me getting started on them so far!

Re: What is a reasonable price for a 2 axle etched wagon kit?

I would have thought that the price on a bulk purchase might be negotiable. Having seen the kit, it's certainly of the highest quality, very well designed and similarly executed. this kit, may well be expensive but I personally believe Justin puts heart and soul into his projects. I suspect he may w...

Re: SCC - Sparkshot Custom Creations

The Furness is certainly attracting the spotlight now if that's a J1, Knuckles!
Must source some CR and G&SW material for you. A Pickersgill 113 would be a sure fire hit!(he said with no hint of impartiality whatsoever!) ;)

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 the...

Re: Phosphor bronze wire as pick ups

To be fair, I suspect that's a correct assessment and I've used them to satisfaction many a time. I was just conscious of not getting anywhere fast with a project I'm keen to complete. :-)

All sorted now though.

Thanks all.

Re: Phosphor bronze wire as pick ups

I have a kit built J27 with Markits wheels and my intention is to use phosphor bronze wipers as nickel silver wire isn't proving very effective.
I'm finding it difficult to source any though. Eileen's appear to be in no hurry to process the order I placed two weeks ago and I can find no other source.

Re: Inductive Resonant Power Transfer

I've just come across this control system and I am fascinated.
Activity has been minimal since late 2012 though from what I can see.
Have there been further developments as I'd like to see this concept get off the ground.

Re: Caley Jumbo modern kit proposed

Gents. I'm doing a head count on all those interested in one or more of these proposed kits. Can you please send an email headed 'Jumbo' to brindlesmith@aol.com indicating your interest and quantity of kits required. I will then collate and total the numbers required for forwarding to Alastair. Than...

Re: Caley Jumbo modern kit proposed

I'm sure that can be accommodated. Would an overseas bank transfer be appropriate in your circumstances?
I don't know if Paypal will be available as an option yet but would that be helpful?
