Re: BUILD A STRUCTURE CHALLENGE WINTER 2015/2016 VOTE

Well done Peter.

If nothing else I'm sure both of us gained from the experience - it does seem however that not many others did!

Re: Dean Halls Challenge 2015 N Gauge Buildings

Hi Peter,

Thank you for your kind words and help along the way - it's one thing achieving on your own but I've always felt better for being part of a team.

Did you get your cladding sorted on your roundhouse?

Regards

Dean

N Scale Modules

Hi Steve, I'm interested in being part of this SIG. I'm currently building a N Scale layout which won't necessarily lend itself to a standardised modular process however having seen the successful build process in the Model Railroader recently using 12" square modules it does seem to provide an basi...

Re: My First Layout - N Gauge Denesport & Lesley Falls

Hi Brian / Mike, Thank you for your kind and constructive comments. I think you are both right with regards to good ballasting and track weathering - I guess it's a bit like tiling which only looks good once the grout has been applied!! On that basis (and I won't hold you to account if it doesn't wo...

Re: My First Layout - N Gauge Denesport & Lesley Falls

Hi Koos, Thanks for the advice and direction - all you ever want to now about water features and more!! - I know have a box of Magic Water (other manufacturers stuff available!!) to try out at a convenient point. So after three days this week "managing" the kitchen fitters and having a crack at the ...

Re: Thunder and lightning

Hi Mike, Sounds reasonable and looks impressive but where's the downpour!!! - A dry storm perhaps? I must admit that i wasn't overly impressed with the Rolling Thunder woofer demo on the net but i guess it may sound better in the flesh. I had a Fantasonics disc set as a xmas prezzie and when played ...

Re: Posting Failure

Hi Koos, Now posting from the HP laptop to see if the problem persists - a photo perhaps https://farm2.staticflickr.com/1482/25256112849_fc2d00b560_c.jpg Centre of the Interlocking by Dean Halls , on Flickr lets see if this works using preview And so it does - perhaps i should just keep the posts sh...

Re: Posting Failure

Hi Koos, Thanks for the timely response, I will try this out using the iPad without photos. I wonder if my login is just dropping out - perhaps it's because I'm waffling and it's a silent protest!!!! Well that seems to work ok. The next post will be via the laptop so that I can add photos by pasting...

Re: Dean Halls Challenge 2015 N Gauge Buildings

Well that was a long xmas break!!! This is obviously the last post prior to close of the Winter Challenge and unfortunately it finds my entry wanting and unfinished. Simply put i needed to have put in more time and this time around it didn't work out that way. That's not to say that the project didn...

Re: My First Layout - N Gauge Denesport & Lesley Falls

Real water - now that is a challenge - I had thought about it but after due consideration it seemed a step too far at this point in my budding layout building career!!! As for adjusting the plan - no harm in that at all (hopefully!) The first three aims sit quite comfortably with plug in power a mus...

Re: My First Layout - N Gauge Denesport & Lesley Falls

Hi Mike, That's thinking outside the box if you pardon the pun!! - never thought of adding a spacer to help form the box!! Your a far braver man than I re placing the point ends across joints - I worked hard to make sure the key point ends were both away from the board joint and the cross members (j...

Re: Dean Halls Challenge 2015 N Gauge Buildings

They are super buildings and once i get my flight legs back (DVT!!!) New England is definitely on the places to go list. Peter, thanks for the tips re the building materials. Another attempt on Wed saw an improvement on overall shape although I think that it still needs a slight increase in length (...
