  1. 009 Scale

    Does a scale model of Llanfair Caereinion in 009 count?,off to the Southampton Show with next weekend Andy.
  2. Solder for brass kits 188 or 145 degree?

    I always use 188 fluxed solder and don't bother with flux,just make sure the brass is clean(glass fibre brush)and use a decent size iron about 30w,The only time the flux comes out is when i'm soldering the steel droppers on DG couplings and then its good old Bakers fluid ,still used some that was liberated from Swindon works at closure!,Andy.
  3. Milton Keynes Model Railway Show

    Slight problem with photos as i don't have clue how to stick them on web sites(don't do computers),however you'll see it at Warley this year,hopefully we'll be together there,Andy.
  4. Milton Keynes Model Railway Show

    Slight correction there,David 50%,Courtmacsherry up and running,concentrating on the scenery,ready for its first (work in progress show)arch,Andy. in M
  5. UTA 2-6-0 Ex-NCC 'Earl of Ulster'

    Theres always the 2f to consider,vaguely Aish with the lights turned off,Andy.
  6. A good read!

    Very good selection of photos in there,one bit that amussed me was when he went back to Arigna after closure he couldn't find it and assumed it had been demolished,can't quite see how he missed it as if it was any nearer to the road you'd hit it! Andy.
  7. NCC Harland & Wolff kit

    Go onto RM Web then onto Small Suppliers in the trade section then Judith Edge theres some photos of the model,Andy.
  8. NCC Harland & Wolff kit

    Just noticec on RM Web that the next Judith Edge kit is for the LMS NCC Harland && Wolff 060 and very good it looks too,Can't justify one but will get one anyway to keep the Jinty and W company.Andy.
  9. PRE-GROUPING AND GSR COACHES IN THE CIE ERA FOR MODELLERS

    Brassmasters do a couple of very good kits for 6 wheel coach chassis.Andy.
  10. David's Workbench

    Been there tried it no it didn't,Andy
  11. 21mm gauge track; the pros and cons?

    Sleeper spacing is totally irrelevant to most of Courtmacsherry as you can't see them(currently burying them at the moment)Andy.
  12. 21mm gauge track; the pros and cons?

    For trackwork i use Copperclad sleepers and Code 75 Bullhead which i get from the EM Gauge Society,its all built to EM standards.The useful thing about soldered track construction is that its easy to tweek after being laid,just the touch of a soldering iron.Andy
  13. 21mm gauge track; the pros and cons?

    Tony,The only ready to run conversion i have is a Halling motor bogie under my C Class.For any one who hasn't come across these rather fine beasties,they are made by Leopold Halling in Austria and are mainly used under tram kits,they are however readily regauged as all you have to do is replace the existing axles (1.5mm)with longer ones,for the C i used 14mm coach wheels instead of the 9mm ones.The usuful thing with these bogies are they have a variable wheelbase and flywheel drive infinitely better than those dreadful Tenshodos.Andy
  14. 21mm gauge track; the pros and cons?

    Just finished doing the trackwork for Courtmacsherry and a quick calculation shows that it cost about 45 quid thats for a 196 foot layout(excluding fiddleyard) with 7 1/2 points (ones a catch point).So 21mm track needn't be expensive,Andy
  15. 21mm gauge track; the pros and cons?

    Coach bogies are dead easy MJT do a range of basic compensated coach bogies in various wheelbases the two sides and centre bolster are connected together by wire so all i do is make the wire longer then solder up the whole lot,they work a treat and you can fix whatever cosmetic frames you want.As for wagon chassis i don't know whether SSM still do their 21mm RCH w irons but those plus the wheel spacing jig from Brassmasters makes the job easy,Andy.
