Re: HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL

Happy New Year to everyone as well. Hopefully 2021 will prove a better year than 2020 was (I'd describe it being polite as Annus Horibilis Maximus!). Hoping I can get some modelling done in the coming months, and going to dig out my tools and track building stuff seeing as I've had to make an unexpe...

Re: Modelling Engineering Wagons

Building the wagons that formed my contribution to the publication kept me gainfully employed during the first lockdown and there are more on the go. Currently eight Lima "Seacow" ballast hoppers are on their way through the paint shop most of which will need scratch built mesh roofs over...

Re: Boats. Of all shapes and sizes...

It should be remembered that they're primarily aimed at wargamers, it is just fortunate that they off stuff in a railway friendly scale.

Re: Boats. Of all shapes and sizes...

Excellent find. Thanks for sharing. I'll have to bookmark that page, as some of those items might well prove useful for when I manage to find some time to work on the layout, which like a lot of things got put on the back burner for most of this year due to lack of time.

Re: Templot on Chromebook computers

ChromeOS is just a very minimul Linux with Chrome browser as the only interface. Very locked down however, everything has to be in the browser and 'install' from the ChromeOS store. There isn't often any or much local storage and everything is in the cloud generally. With the above in mind, Chromebo...

Re: Scalefour North Cancellation

Not unexpected news really, and probably the correct option given all the available options.

Finances would have meant I wouldn't have been able to make it either way. But still a shame to miss such an excellent show.

I'll look forward hopefully to next years show.

Re: 7th Chris Kedgley Skills Day

A very nice day and a great chance to learn a few things and so on.

I can't always get to the skills days as some are too far away, but this is the best I have attended yet.

Thanks to everyone involved.

The one from Hannants looks rather useful. They tend to have a wide range of items that might be of interest beyond aviation modelling, so the site is worth a browse.

Re: Harton High Staithes inspired Layout

BR 1/146 welded 21T hoppers were introduced in 1952, and the 1/142 welded 13T hopper in 1949. The 1974 date relates to those hoppers rebuilt by Shildon with welded bodies to a new design https://paulbartlett.zenfolio.com/brhuckbolt21t . Thanks for that. I think Hatcher refers to the ncb welded as b...
