Re: 2015 Convention Hotels

Thanks Dave, but I need to know which overflow hotel that Convention registrants are actually being booked into. As I said, my friend has had no response from the obvious source .....

2015 Convention Hotels

Whoops, year correction! Please, does anyone know which overflow hotel is being used. A friend has had no response from the obvious source, and he needs to know which one it is within the next ten days.

Re: Quisling: constructing 16 feet of modular railroad

Thank you both, much appreciated. I wish the Conrad had been around earlier when I was installing Tortoises en mass, especially those where I had to add cable extensions to because the Tortoises fouled the L-girder!

Re: Quisling: constructing 16 feet of modular railroad

Hi Brian I'm intrigued by these Conrad switch machines, and they are so cheap! I've seen Conrad's web site at http://www.conrad-electronic.co.uk/ce/en/product/219998/ and its picture but there is no indication of how the machine is connected to the turnout when underneath. Is the tab bolted to the d...

Re: Balboa Drive Train Headache

Hi maineu18b(??)

Suggestions:
1. Use thicker-walled stiffer silicon tubing (Branchline 1.9 mm should fit both shafts).
2. Can worm-shaft be turned easily by hand? If not then correct this.
3. Use NWSL 2.00mm (plus 2.4 mm adaptors) Universal coupler set item #482-6.

Cheers

Bus number 50 from the railway station on Saturdays at 08.58, 09.38 and then hourly at xx.38 to Swanage bus station. Return at xx.25, takes 62 minutes. See http://www.morebus.co.uk/service.shtml?serviceid=1563 . "Transport Direct" has got it wrong re the starting point. I rather fancy an excursion! ...

Re: Paint decanting

Thank you Koos and Dan I've only used pippettes for thinners so far but as suggested I will try them for paints as well - hopefully easy to clean! A particularly nice Pippette I use with built in "sucker" is at: http://www.air-craft.net/acatalog/Transfer-Pipette.html 98p each "2ml graduated polyprop...

Re: Paint decanting

Paint decanting

Having just onto air brushing buildings, using acrylic paints, what do members tend to use when they decant paints for mixing and spraying? It's a messy business at the moment!
