    Air brush set

    I have been using something similar to this and it has proved to do a good job for me. A year or two ago I ditched the lidl/aldi compressor for something like what is available in Marks Models - great improvement. https://www.ebay.ie/itm/Double-Action-Trigger-Gravity-Airbrush-Kit-SP180K-Air-Brushes-Spray-Gun-DLUK/273248693278?hash=item3f9ee42c1e:g:IkYAAOSwvg9XVOsg:rk:11:pf:0

    New models with a 3D printer

    I intend on getting a 3D printer next year, however the 3D skills are not up to anything complex at the moment. Almost anything is possible but there are also plenty of limitations with 3D printing and the models would still require a level of finishing after printing.

    Having just watched this video I can say that it is highly recommended! Screenshot from the video:

    All comments are appreciated! Got my IRM Tara Mines wagons and some MERG kits last week in time for Christmas.

    Thanks everyone The cement wagons were painted last week, I think the blue on the curtain is too dark, but I also think that it might do when weathered.

    Can anyone recommend a blue for the curtain cement wagons please? RPSI 3173 has also progressed this weekend - painting next week.

    IRM Rawie Buffer Stop

    Here is the information affixed to the buffer stop on the siding in Wellingtonbridge showing the distance and spacing of the friction elements.

    This week I made a start on RPSI 3173 from a Bachmann BSK donor. I also picked up 6 MIR curtain cement pallet wagons and put them together this afternoon. Another job was to attempt to straighten the chassis on a completed beet wagon which was warped. A dip in some hot water and cooling under weight seems to have removed most of the wobble.

    Looks good Noel, do you have a Bill Bedford handrail bending jig? Handy for these jobs.
