For those who have used the service to date, thank you and I am grateful you trusted me with your models. Happy modelling and kind regards Chris
  5. Not that I've found, I've had to get them from the uk.
  6. It is not currently something I offer at this time.
  7. Fair to say what ever it will be will suit some and not others. I look forward myself to finding out whether my bank account will be safe or if I'll be looking forward to my new purchase
  8. Echoing what has already been said its a shame that this has happened to you and shocking that such behaviour has found its way onto this page.
  9. It's sad to hear that MM is a solo effort. I have to say that MM is responsible for my interest in irish railway modelling. When I returned to the hobby I knew nothing of the rich history of irish rail. I have MM and also now IRM to thank for increasing my knowledge and being for driver behind me wanting to learn more.
  10. My intercity liveried 201 would not say no too that. Nor would I
  11. What about using a resistor or have you tried that?
  12. Would be interested in that genny if it wasn't that price though
  13. Ive been so tempted by those six for weeks now. They've been up a good while. But after repainting another rake of mk3s plus I've three mk2s on the way to do it would be a more want then need purchase for me
  14. Two lots of galway livery mk2s up on ebay. Three lima in one lot and a MM genny and restaurant in the other for anyone who is interested
  15. Also in addition to your point for anyone looking to try their hand at repainting, putting down the white first as even a primer layer helps give the orange a brighter look. I use Ral 2011 through an airbrush.
  16. I normally do reverse masking as I've done on my repainted rakes of mk3s. Was trying something new for my own experience more then anything. As this was my first time building the kit I used it more as a way to experiment. Never the less thank you and I've been following your thread and the work on those mk2s are excellent.
  17. Minus decals and weathering for now. Alot of lessons learned on this for the next time. Your thoughts as always are appreciated guys.
  18. After seeing these photos I can't wait for mine even more. Looks amazing.
  19. Amazing scene Rob. Great level of detail.
  20. Thank you all. I think this would be very interesting layout or diorama. Definitely going to research this more.
  21. Just stumbled across this post and am instantly fascinated. Is there any more information? Pictures? Dos it still exist or did we do the irish thing and scrap this piece of irish military history?
  22. The closer it gets to the release the harder it is too be patient. Models looks amazing guys well done and looks to just glade across the rails
  23. Overall lessons learnt so far on my first attempt at this kit. 1. Patience - not that I rush it but as I wasn't using the recommended hornby or lima mark 3 coaches because i didnt have one I had to plan around how the coach came after and went back together. I could have given this more time as this forced me to jump some steps or do other sooner then was intended. 2. Milliput - using this for the first time on a project. In some areas i put too much and in others not enough which became apparent when primer was applied after sanding. I think starting in small amounts and slowly building it up would have been better. 3. Glue - too much on some parts not enough on others. In the areas with too much it can be seen through the paint as a raised lump. These are my main take aways for anyone looking at giving it ago. I enjoyed the process and thought the kit very good and this was a good learning experience for the others I will be planning on building in the future. Thanks Chris
