Re: What 5-plank wagon is this and what livery should it be?

Nice photos Jeremy. :) Note the diagonals on the sides of the courrgated opens. On the BR builds they ended below the body on a bracket but on the LMS ones they ended on the body itself. David the ones you have are BR builds. I assume they are Parkside kits? Also there were variations in the angle o...

Sorry if this is a Numpty question and being out of the loop, but what is the current situation with Nucast Partners? they don't seem to have a website and the main references seem to be old entries on RMWeb.

Rumney Models Trading Update Since mid-March we have as a family been ‘shielding’ from Coronavirus as one of us is on the NHS vulnerable list.

Re: Exactoscale wagon chassis kits

They should be related, it is what we are modelling after all. Why? Sorry I don't understand why the length of our axles should be dictated by the scaled down measurement for prototype journal centres. That is journal centres, not prototype axle length which is, as I'm sure you know, longer. How mu...

Re: Exactoscale wagon chassis kits

I found this exact problem when I tried them some years ago, the short axles leave no margin of error. Journal centres should be 26mm apart, and pinpoints are designed to put the pinpoint at journal centre. These axles at 25mm do not even reach the journal centres! I've never entirely understood wh...

Re: Rumney Models - Temporary Suspension of Trading

Thanks both.

Hopefully I'll be back up and running before too long. I should also be in a good position to trade normally with decent stock levels when things get going again.

Take good care all.

Rumney Models - Temporary Suspension of Trading

Yesterday I received an email from my etching company saying that they were following Scottish government advice and suspending manufacturing due to the Coronavirus pandemic. This obviously means that I now cannot get any more etches done until they restart production and get through any backlog the...

Re: GWR number plates

The measurements I've taken give a depth of 1" over beading and numbers, with the numbers themselves 1/4" high. There is also a bevelled rim around the outside of the plate around 1/2" deep. To my mind the ideal etched plate would be two layers of 0.006"; I'll get round to doing ...

Re: Wagon W-iron types

The axleguard is an RCH heavy duty type on those Trouts. The riveted axlebox guide is a good incicator of a heavy axleguard as would be the carrying weight of the wagon. You'd generally expect to find them on wagons with a 20T+ load. Do Alan Gibson do wagon axleguards? Bill Bedford does the correct ...

This is the vertical distance from the axle centre to the bottom of the hole in the spring carrier onto which the spring wire bears. If you need to make new carriers then use this dimension.

As part of the steam loco chassis commissions that I've recently been undertaking I've some analysis in CAD using EM and P4 tyre profiles to derive the amount of sideplay necessary for a given minimum raidus (I usually design them down to 1m) and therefore set the frame spacer widths from this.
