Re: Scaleforum 2016

I was there all weekend and thoroughly enjoyed all my time there yet feel there was still so much more I could've look at! A sign of a good show IMHO! Well done to the new team on the b...

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

....once I've established the price to complete one of these models, I'll move on....but not before. To Dave Ignoring the bloodymindedness that's being expressed in this thread, the market price of a kit (or any other commodity) is the price at which the market demands. The kit in question sold out...

Where are those 'Like' and 'Dislike' buttons!! They could've come in very useful throughout this thread! ;)

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

Having caught up on this thread I personally feel this discussion captures both what our hobby does incredibly well but also what we do badly. Our hobby is full of extremely talented people who are/have been more than happy to make their work available for very little remuneration. It is the efforts...

Re: March 2013 Meeting

Jol, I suggest you stay indoors and watch East Enders (or something else mundane) when Mike organises the 5" steam up, it's far too addictive if you give in to temptation and play, then you'll never get any 4mm modelling done afterwards! :D I have seen a rather nice Precursor, Cauliflower, Tuto...

Re: Are RTR models 'really' that good?

I have a couple of RTR models and have also been following an interesting discussion on RMWEB in which kits v rtr were the main topic. The green Bachmann dome is part of a RTR that has had rave reviews, the black Bachmann dome has also been enthusiastically received. While I have a particular inter...

Re: Are RTR models 'really' that good?

I'm afraid I'm in the camp that in the majority, RTR models are good but they're not great models. The model of 3770 as built by Tom Mallard is far superior in my eye's to anything that any RTR manufacturer has produced to date and the differences are world's apart. The RTR model as judged in the ph...

Re: Something to celebrate?

Firstly a big thank you to Justin and the NAGNAGer's, as previously said it was a very enjoyable evening!   Terry, looking at the pic I think the purpose of the short length of rail is to maintain electrical contact across the rail joint.   Tim, I’m not entirely convinced that the photocopies are ju...

That looks spot on Gerry! Would be hard pressed to tell the difference between that and a kit built coach! Look forward to having a closer look at some point!

Midland TPO - Help required

All, I'm sure many of you are already aware of the Bristol Barrow Road project and despite the model's infancy, recent research has turned to some of the rolling stock. The Midland coaching stock was stabled adjacent to the roundhouse and one particular train that has caught our attention is the 'Mi...
