Re: Bruce Chubb Articles in RMC

Hi Peter,

Part 11, as the concluding instalment was in Nov 2016 RMC. I have all the 11 sections as digital downloads within the magazines but not sure I can copy and paste them into a "book" to say email you.

Was there anything particular of interest?

Kind regards

Dean

Re: N Scale Modules

Hi Geoff, Actually, I have got some good news in that the nearest group to me (Thamesiders based at Frating near Colchester) are very keen on N and this Saturday (20th) there is a discussion to see how we can make a go of it (all though I'm not sure T Trak is on the radar!!) - I had previously got s...

Re: Winter Challenge 2016 Koos Fockens work on the layout

Hi Koos, it's all progress no matter how small the step - and getting the opportunity to run your trains where they go somewhere is what it's all about - well done.

Re: Winter Challenge 2016 - Dean Halls - Build a Car (or 12)

I promised myself that if I entered this year I would finish and as today is the last day then I guess I've finished - or at least at a point where I am happy (and able) to run the units around "the Depot" (the shed)! https://c1.staticflickr.com/4/3741/32942799703_23f16e1a3d_z.jpg They run!! by Dean...

Re: Winter Challenge 2016 - Dean Halls - Build a Car (or 12)

As can be seen in the previous photo the brake pipes are very easy to brake (pardon the pun!!). Some judicial placement of glue seems to have worked but I would rather have had it fitted properly and whole - anyway at least we now have two braked cars so its not completely a runaway!! https://c1.sta...

Re: Winter Challenge 2016 - Dean Halls - Build a Car (or 12)

Just starting to realise that retirement doesn't necessarily mean more modelling time!! - there remains however a bit o time left and I aim to complete this year!! As can be seen in the pic below - all 12 cars have been built in so far as bodies and truck assemblies (apart from one set where I seem ...

Re: Winter 2016 Challenge - Jim Botten - Breakheart Trestle

Hi Jim,

The wait has been worthwhile - the new Trestle and the clay formation at its base look superb - many more to go?

Kind regards

Re: NMRA Track Gauge - where can I buy one?

Hi David, if you're after an HO unit I have one you can borrow / buy or you could try Osbourne Models.

Re: 23rd Street

Hi Mike,

A nice rendition of a grab and with the additional activities the driver certainly now has his work cut out! - I'm assuming that, whilst I'm sure it's not beyond your capabilities, the loader isn't actually motorised!

Kind regards

Re: Assistance with an Open University Project

Hi David, Just read your post and also noted your based in Ipswich? For my sins I'm just down the road in Felixstowe and having just retired and only now setting off on a long awaited model building career I'd certainly be interested in helping out if at all possible in your quest. I'm contactable o...

Re: Southern Pacific GP9R

Hi Koos, nice distraction! I would have included it in the Winter Challenge as well as your layout rebuild - I'm assuming we're not limited to one entry? Was the paintwork done with an air brush or by brush or both? Either way the finish looks nice and crisp and I like the way the S appears over the...

Re: Winter 2016 Challenge - Peter Bowen - Scratchbuilt Freight Car

Hi Peter,

Looking extremely good irrespective of a false start!! - am I right in thinking it's O Scale (or derivative)? Congrats on your Master Builder by the way - I noticed your name in the latest NMRA mag listing so well done.

Hi Peter, Thank you for the encouragement and kind words - as for eyes I'm a spectacled man and if you add in the head mounted magnifier it all becomes so much clearer!! Not sure I'm going to get any more done before Santa arrives so here's wishing you all a Merry Christmas and a happy modelling New...

So the glue came out (a Revell Liquid glue for plastics product 39604 complete with very thin metal spout-others are available) along with some very small clothes pegs and rubber bands - essential for holding parts together while you go make that next cup of tea. https://c1.staticflickr.com/1/597/31...
