Re: common crossing vee angles

Ben, you can run your Mac with a partition to allow a dual boot into either OSx or Windows. I run a small partition of the HD for windows in order to run Templot on a 2015 MacBook Pro. It will appear to run the fans a lot, some of the bios functions may not be so fine tuned, since there is not a hea...

Re: Last orders for an etched chassis kit for the Hornby 0-4-0 Peckett.

Having just stumbled across this thread, and finally facing up the the fact that a x-country mainline will not fit into the current accommodation, could I add my name to the waiting list if there's to be another batch of this chassis?

Re: Hornby 08 to P4

Intriguing. I'm using Gibsons and they drag against the mouldings something rotten. Given a b2b and hopefully a wheel standard........ what the heck is giving the variable between the two brands? Methinks this may be Friday afternoon's scientific voyage of discovery.

Re: Recommend a Primer

To throw a cat amongst the pigeons.... I'm currently trialling an automotive sector 2k primer. This is not cheap but sprays very thinned down so takes a number of passes, but so far very good coverage (albeit built up), no damage to either a Hornby or Bachmann body shell and a bomb-proof, very smoot...

Even a looksee would be worthwhile.... cos lets face it I've 99.5% of a layout still to build before I get to needing to stop things falling off the end, but its a Pavlov style reaction upon seeing "NER". I'll pop by at Wakefield for a chat.
