Re: Resistance Soldering

Thank you, gents, for your help. I'll have another go when I've put my bike back together. Thankfully it doesn't require any soldering! :thumb

Re: Resistance Soldering

I thought I was an outside cheeky bet for the RSU GP championship this afternoon. Come 6pm I have knocked Picasso into a cocked hat.

Oh well, tomorrow's another day.

HLKits, how many 03/04 chassis kits in stock? :P

A wonderful day oop north for the mrs and I. Wonderful layouts both complete and in progress. I would like to thank a few people if I may? Steve Carter for a great welcome, Jeremy Suter for his usual superness and the stewards and all the others in the backround that made it happen. Traders of perso...

Re: Resistance Soldering

Maybe I should have said 'I quite look forward to DB's demo', as opposed to going loop de loo.
Hindsight is useful, I guess.

Apologies.

Re: Colin Parks, Scalefour member

A bloke I never had the pleasure to meet, much like others. Obviously supremely talented. What struck me about him, was his positivity, his bounding joy. As a self confessed misery, I found his countenance a veritable wonder. An almost childlike interest in others' activities-allied with acute knowl...

A triumph, Jon! Well done. The iphone 6 speaker is a super little fella- chop off the small rectangle and fill the resultant hole, and it'll fit in no problem.

Best. Show. Ever.

Even Fran had a great time, she doesn't usually care for the modelling side of things, so great praise indeed!

Re: Ultrascale now closed to new orders

It's hardly the time to get a sad on. "If you build it, they will come!" Pertinently, if the demand is there, they will build it. The geezer might be training someone up later in the year, buying new kit in the next year. Who knows? It is metal, dimensions and skill (milling, lathe, etc, y...
