Re: Mike G's catch up.

Another coach nears completion. Stannier D1845. Just the bogies to put together. There are a few problems with this Comet kit, it's not entirely accurate. Guards doors are too wide and the vent space above the toilet is way too big, it should be the same size as the rest of the vents on the passenge...

Re: Mike G's catch up.

It should come out as a faded white. But that'll be when the weather is warmer and I can get a coat of primer on. I'm still trying to find out what transfers I need to complete it as well. So if anyone knows I'd appreciate the heads up.

Nearly there with D1791. Ventilators to go on and train brake gear. Then the bogies to build.

Re: Brassmasters Rebuilt Royal Scot, 46109

Brilliant modelling Dave. I notice you've dropped the wheels out while doing this. How does the kit allow for that to happen or how have you engineered a solution to that problem. Having never built a Brassmasters kit, I'm just curious.

Stay safe

Re: VIRTUAL SCALEFORUM & SCALEFOUR NORTH

Massive thank you to eveyone involved in sorting this out. Some brilliant modelling to look at and really useful links to help with wagons and scenics.

I especially liked the Zoom 'pop up' meets. Anyway, a big thank you.

So both the BR standard 5 and Collet 2227 are in a state where they run. 2227 is completely finished and requires no further work. https://youtu.be/dOmhatUBOcI The std 5 requires more work.

You could send the whole plan to someone who can laser cut the plan in one go. Save a fair bit of work. There are various people who do this. As I've started Hengoed HL, Intentio have done mine.
