I think Mercian produced a kit for them in 7mm scale, but I never saw a 4mm version attempted.

If people can't wait for a broken Hornby one to turn up on eBay, they could always try shoving the old Lima or K's bodyshells on it.

I wouldn't have used the word "hard" in that context.

The only professional model maker I'm aware of is Rocar.
...and RoCar don't give any contact details on their website. Has Rodney Cooper retired?

.... a V1/3 from a well known kit designer where all the wheels will be individually sprung. Not Worsley Works?

Found a little time to continue working on the N7 chassis. Can someone please advise on the normal chassis outside widths over the side frames that iareused for P4 and also for 00 steam locomotives. I'd like to make sure it would work with both. 16.5 for P4, I think. OO: not sure - there seem to be...

Wouldn't say no to those, Andy. Is your CNC system able to produce tyres for those who want to use their own wheel centres?
So what were the highlights?..... For me this year, it wasn't the layouts. It was the 2mm Scale Association demo table. Even though my varifocals proved almost useless at getting close up....which worries me if I'm going to return to prolonged building sessions. Everyone says I should also use one ...
As shows go, that wasn't bad at all. Anyone who likes DCC gimmicks should see New Kensal Green , where there's plenty of visible steam and smoke from engine chimneys. The next challenge will be to make it look like it's coming from the cylinder drain cocks. ....They already produce scratch builder e...
Seems packed today. Difficult to get a spot to view anything at the moment. Mike and Judith Edge have some very interesting plans for the months and years ahead. Am hoping they might produce scratchbuilder etches for the Gresley V4 and Robinson 8K chassis. They have an S1 0-8-4T on display; very imp...
