Re: Chris Wesson Cellulose Paints

Ian I think if you email them and ask for Landrover bronze green or Rover Brooklands green you will get a better match. The cream I use is Talbot Jonquil and the crimson is Ford Venetian red. If you'd like to see how these colours come out, I can post a picture prior to toning down and once complete...

Exactoscale wagon couplings - a problem

Let me start by saying I love the look and simplicity of these couplings. I like operating with them, despite my deteriorating eyesight, and they'll be used on the fledgling Hengoed High Level. But why, oh why, do the links fall out of the hook- nearly every time - I put them away and then take them...

Re: Any Wheel and size!

I'd start with a set of 9f wheels and go from there (I have 3 to build...one step at a time). So for me cost, to a point, would be a factor. Anything more than Ultrascale prices and I'd be out. Looking forward to seeing how this moves forward. Just one more question...would EM tyres be available as ...

Would the chassis be the same as the High Level Hawthorn Leslie 0-6-0? Might save a bit on time...design wise.

Great work, really impressive. I don't know if you've been asked this before, but what do you use for rivets on the valve gear? The heads look way smaller than I've seen. What's the secret please?

Hope you're keeping well.

Re: Dullcoat

I understood that Dullcoat was cellulose based. Never had a problem with any of the coaches I've used it on. But then these were covered in a cellulose paint. I've used the can and the stuff out the bottle. Thinned the bottled stuff with cellulose. 50/50 @ 25 psi. I have used the Vallejo acrylic mat...

Nice work, I think that rough patch on the cylinder cover will rub out with a 5mm scratch pencil. Might save you a job or two.

Re: Crab Comet conversion

Julian There is a slight compromise in where the bogie is positioned. The layouts that this runs on don't have the scaled bends. I think you can just see the compromise in this photo. Dive in with the build. This is a Comet Scot kit and was great fun to build. The photo was by Bernie Baker, taken on...

That's a Comet rubbing plate for coaches - still available separately - which I had milled down to the correct thickness (Comet part C59). Fortunately Newport MRS has it's own milling machine. Took about 1mm off the thickness.

Re: Crab Comet conversion

I'd agree CSB on a bogie would be a bit of an ask! But that doesn't mean springing can't be used on a bogie. This is the arrangement I have on my Scot. Those who've seen it run will attest to the quality of the chassis - not all my own work admittedly. The bogie is a typical Garwood bodge! :D P10100...
