    21mm gauge track; the pros and cons?

    Hi all,. To the uninitiated what is the main visual or otherwise difference with 21 MM. Gauge and oo gauge. I have never given it much thought or read much about it before this thread as it looked way above . what I could do.
  10. Hi all, . Didn't want to take the mk2a thread off topic,. so thought I would throw this about and see what happens. Now I could be wrong , but I think there are more than a few likeminded people as well as myself who would . really like to see the above Dutch van ,in my case both unrebuilt and rebuilt being produced to a high spec, . Preferably by the IRM team. ( no pressure lads) . Maybe if we had enough intrest the lads or someone . might give it some serious consideration ( just a thought) and not trying to take anything away from what . the lads are planning. I know in the recent poll the Dutch van didn't make any waves, . But maybe just. maybe someday ? . regards john

    High end R-T-R Dutch van. ( rebuilt)

    Right so , a high end rtr Dutch van doesn't seem to ruffle to many feathers,. and I thought like Richie they would shift in their millions 😂 . Okay plan B now this is not about who makes the unrebuilt van ,but is the sf van of the right shape and look as I really can't tell ,would much work be needed if not. Secondly dc kits are not stocking the rebuilt Dutch van any more, so I was thinking does this also have the right look and feel about it ,and if so if enough people expressed interest could doc kits be approached about a small run, or as jm replied contact a professional model maker. I can also see it would have to be cost effective for anybody to give it a go. like i say if enough expressed intrest we could go from there. bit long winded this reply , sorry about that. also if anyone wants to pm me their personal view on the current available dutch vans I would maybe prefer this as I don't want to offend anyone, just maybe buy 3/4 vans that's all.
  12. WOW,. They look brilliant,. your right Fran the detail on the chassis really stands out,. Glad I ordered these as well. great work guys.

    The Seige of Jadotville

    Well said Dave,. Shameful to treat our soldiers like that. Little use a medal when some of them went to their grave thinking they were tarnished, when in fact they were Heroes.our government at the time were the cowards for letting them down.
