Re: The Socially-Distanced Challenge - Announcement thread

Well, I've got plenty to get on with here, so I'm happy to partake. So much to do, so much (new found) time......

Changes to meetings

Just a quick note to anyone in the Chilterns area who isn't on the email list, we will be holding meetings via the means of Skype until the current situation changes. Please contact me either via email (details on the Blue sheet) or PM on here.

Cheers,

Re: Coronation

I think I'll have a go at one of these too... I know it says on the page that the last pair require parts not included in the kit, but I wonder who will be the first to build one of them as such?

Cheers,

Re: A Highland Miscellany

Looking good there Mark! Gives me the impetus to do my own one at some point... One thing though: you might wish to turn the three rectangular vents round 90 degrees, then it might match the photo ;)

Re: 7 mm wheels for Realtracks FLA container flats

I have another one to convert and will probably try the Parkside Dundas 7mm N gauge disc wheels, part no PN64. These have a dia of 7mm, a flange width of 0.5mm, a flange depth of 0.6mm and a tyre width of 1.97mm. However the axle dia is 1.5mm. Random thought... Would sleeving the axle in 2mm OD/1.5...

Re: Scaleforum 2015

As a quick taster of what will be in the retrospective, here's a view from above (and not the usual vantage point of the upper level seats), thanks to the use of a pole for the camera. I did note, with amusement, that the DRAG guys had used exactly the same type of pole for their signpost. _MG_25354...

Re: RSU day, August 15th

Thankyou so much for coming along, Paul. I felt it went reasonably well too and certainly helped dispel the myth that an RSU is some scary piece of expensive kit that you might hardly ever use. The upshot of the day is that the aforementioned N2 chassis now has all three axles in place and rolls bea...

Re: Heljan Class 26 Superdetailing project

The side frames from the recently upgraded Heljan 33 have separate brake cylinders which would fit the bill. Available as spares from Howes Ta David! I think those might fit the bill admirably. Hi Tim, Thanks for the comment. Yes I did consider replacing these but I didn't have much luck finding an...

Re: Heljan Class 26 Superdetailing project

That's looking rather superb there Jonathan. I think you've convinced me enough, with this little project of yours, that I ought to give my one the same treatment too. One thing though; have you considered replacing the brake cylinders with some that have a bit more meat to them and not in moulded h...

Chilterns Area Group

A short announcement of the formation of a new(ish) area group. The AG fills a geographical gap between the NLG and CHEAG and roughly follows the line of the Chiltern Hills, encompassing large parts of Beds, Bucks and Herts. Since forming an AG within the EMGS, there has been a reasonably good conti...
