    A nice collection of bit there Eoin

    Hi Gerhard You don't have to be embarrassed Gerhard there is just so much stuff out there on the shelf as such, that there is very little point in trying to make the bits that do the work, but to use that time to make the the pretty bits we all look at. As for the white metal castings these can still be purchased from the 5.5mm Society from Mike Savage at:- http://www.5andahalf.info/pdf/prices.pdf email him on m.savage80@ntlworld.com The loco kit itself from Worsley Works http://www.worsleyworks.co.uk/NG/NG_Irish.htm As for wheels & axles I would suggest Markits:- http://www.markits.com/ The catalogue can take up some time to look through so make sure you have a cup of Tea or Coffee to hand before you start Motors and gear boxes can be obtained from Brian at Branchlines sadly he has no website but you can contact him at the following email address:- Brian Osborne on sales@branchlines.com Ask him to send you his downloadable motor and gearbox sheet, I think you will find a lot of information on it Another supplier of motors and drive units is Nigel Lawton 009 at http://www.nigellawton009.com/VeeTipper.html These aren't the only suppliers out there, I am sure there are others, But I have not dealt with anyone else so far. Some one who may be able to help out is Roxey Mouldings at http://www.roxeymouldings.co.uk/ or dave@roxeymouldings.co.uk In the case of useful research to help fellow modellers I have come across this:- http://www.rmweb.co.uk/community/index.php?/topic/1121-motors-and-gearboxes-notes-on-types-and-uses/ I haven't read it but it looks useful For gearboxes have a look at this site:- http://www.djhmodelloco.co.uk/motors-gearboxes-oo-ho-scale/ One last place to look at is the 3SMR site:- http://www.3smr.co.uk/motors.html As you can see so much of it is now made it is just a case of working out what you want and buying it all in. 3SMR are one of the places I get my 12mm gauge axles from Hope this lot helps Colin

    OK not sure how this is going to work out but here goes I have taken some photos in not ideal conditions I may add but these are the Mike Chinery Bogies as you now get them I hope these help. In the kit you get the main bogie casting itself two side frames a motor mount casting and some etchings for the flyweights. Colin

    I have tried looking for those bogies, but I must have put them in a safe place, as I can't find them at the moment.
  6. Walker Diesel Class F - ECMbuild in 4mm for OOn3

    This is a most impressive build
  7. GSWR 52 Class GSR/CIE D17 4-4-0

    Should I ever get around to it I would love to have both a class 52 and a class 60 if that does not muddy the waters Colin
  8. Walker Diesel Class F - ECMbuild in 4mm for OOn3

    If I recall they are a complete casting and you have to fit the axles through the sides at the same time as you fit the wheels and gearing, I am thinking about use Nigel Lawton parts instead small but powerful can motors and drive belts I have seen these in action and they are very quiet, you can see the details here:- http://www.nigellawton009.com/VeeTipper.html Colin
  9. Some useful Tools

    just in case anyone needed one Lidi's are sell hot glue guns not sure if they are selling them everywhere but just to give you guys the heads up. Colin

    Hi Guys Yes Mike did stopped making the bogies and a lot of other things as well, But you can still buy the kits from Mike Savage at:- http://www.5andahalf.info/pdf/prices.pdf email him on m.savage80@ntlworld.com I am not sure how much they are now since I got mind a few year ago, due to not have anyone to make them up you have to buy your own motors, axles, gears, wheels etc to complete the kit, I only purchase the white metal castings hence why they are not yet made up. If you want to get all the other bits all at once you can contain Brian of Branchlines Brian Osborne on sales@branchlines.com Sadly they don't have a website which is up to date but they will supply data sheets of there range if you ask for them which is loco kits narrow gauge 00n3, motors, gear boxes and wheels on another and standard gauge brass coach kits which I think could be use as a basis to make up a few odd Irish prototypes of years gone by. my bits are in the shed so I will try and dig them out tomorrow.

    Thanks for the tips can you explain more about how you made the Jig? and what did you use and how did you go about making it I could do with one of them for all my kits, I have been buying all the bits to do all three of these in 00n3 I have three sets of White metal bogies, but it is suggested you use bigger size that scale wheels in them, I am not convinced about that, so I will be buying 9mm dia wheel sets as opposed to the 10.5mm size as suggested by the bogie manufacture.

    Thank Wrenneire, that's about £35.00 over here, so that would be kiddies intro first train set price. time to avoid them like the Plague.

    Not that I am interest (to modern for me) but what is a good price for them? or more to the point what will you guys pay for them just in case I see any at the up coming shows over the next few months. Colin
  14. new look site?

    That is the one thank you for your help Colin
  15. new look site?

    Sorry I think it was an old MGWR 2-4-0 Tender type and it was going to be released in two versions as built and as rebuilt at Inchicore, I think the kit was been developed in New Zealand? I hope this narrow is down a bit more. Regards Colin
