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...

Derek

Does this mean you're not going to be stocking the air booth filter replacements? If not, can you suggest a supplier please.

Re: Rumney Models - RCH 1927 Tank Wagon Underframes, BR Plate Freight Bogies, Wagon Castings

I have a number of Comet Mk1's with the Comet brass 'slab' soldered onto the underframe. I was hoping that your design might be adapted to allow me to use them without having to un-solder this big brass washer, described on the Comet site as 'Threaded coach bogie rubbing plates, bolts, nuts, pair' ...

Re: Perseverance Coach Etches - question re availability

Hi

I think the owner has recently passed away and I don't think the range has been picked up. I could be wrong on that - but not about the owner.

Re: Pressfix lining disaster...

Hi Andy I've no idea how old the transfer sheet was/is. It's one of pages I had left over from lining all the LMS coaches I built some years ago. But it was still tacky when I peeled the protective cover off to get at them. I'd checked the alignment by running my eye down the length of the coach and...

Re: Pressfix lining disaster...

Thank you all for the suggestions. I tried the meths approach first without any success only dulling the finish of the surrounding area. Tried the micro sol suggestion, I did use a lot of the solution, but you can see the result below. So, bathtime with some cellulose thinners and start again. IMG_1...

Pressfix lining disaster...

Good evening Just finishing off a GWR full brake, in BR maroon (cellulose)...my usual methods employed for getting the lining straight - which on the previous 30 odd coaches worked well. Added the Micro sol, off came the top covering to reveal a donkey's hind leg. Added more micro sol and went about...

Re: Ultrascale now closed to new orders

For the last few years, for all the chassis I've wanted (but not having time to build right now) I've ordered wheels ahead of the build. The only wheels I need right now - and I'm in no particular rush - is for a Royal Scot and a Duchess...and I may decide to get rid of these kits as they don't fit ...

As I understand the latest entry on the thread on Falcon Brass... the threat of with drawl of the range has been removed. Whether that's a good or bad thing...only those buying and building the kits will know for sure.

Re: GWR 9' bogie subframes

It's all in the name, there's no design difference in any of Bill's excellent sprung bogies - they all look the same. I've used the LMS ones several times on GWR stock, you wouldn't know that there's a difference. Just get a set and you'll see what I mean.
