Re: Airfix 48xx with High Level Kits chassis

Somewhere I have a schedule of handrail sizes, can I find it now? On the laptop or carbon-based record? Paul It was on a piece of paper stuck on the wall by my workbench. It has disappeared. After much searching through GWSG magazines, here it is (GWSG Newsletter Spring 2008). Cab handrails.jpg

Re: Area Groups and Zoom

On W10 have you seen the new 'Meet me' icon on the taskbar? Uses Skype - which is an alternative to Zoom.

I find the new 'features' of W10 to be an annoyance ...

Re: Area Groups and Zoom

In Bristol we have weekly Zoom meetings. We tried the paid for version, but decided to keep with the free version. Starting a new meeting was not such a 'faf' as you imply, and saves a bit of money.

Re: Loctite

Also note that Loctite has a 'use by' date. I had some 601 (!) without a 'use by' date on it - I was told this was very old. The difference between using old (past it) and newer stuff is that the newer stuff works better. These days I keep an eye on 'use by' dates. For example I write the purchase d...

Re: Instructions for M Mitchell/David Geen 45/55xx kit

Reminds me that JLTRL models took over the MM range. A certain person rang a number, spoke to Pete Waterman - who very kindly let him have copies of the 7mm instructions. People in the music industry have been known to pretend to be interested in models - but get the phone put down when their real i...

Re: Sand pipes for removeable wheelsets

I've used copper wire in the past. Removing the wheels isn't done that often.

And don't forget that those who build fixed wheelsets don't have the option to remove them!

Re: The editor is on-line

Yes I am restricted to what is submitted. However, I think that all branches of model making hobbies have something to contribute (not exclusively railways as well). An article on American scenery approaches would be very welcome. I read Model Railroader when I can get my hands on it, some of the Ka...

One thing about this show is - no complaints about the dreadful accessibility of the venue, lack of parking, distance from public transport.
