  1. Ta, bit late for me, in that case! Richard.
  2. Looks great, do we know what era this is - late 50's or early 60's....? Richard.
  3. Oh I know, you're right, the costsa aren't that different just musing, really! Going to need(need... or want....?!) a grey one and a mixed IE/IR pair.....! Cheers for now! Richard.
  4. Re Double packs - a powered and unpowered would work quite well - but I guess not really much change in the price, in reality! Cheers for now! Richard.

    The Ultimate

    Mk1 GSV is an excellent call - loads of cravens looking for a brake vehicle! A WT would be a great steam loco to have RTR, I'd also vote for a S class as well, as that'd also cover the modern era. 85 goes without saying, too Richard.
  6. Hi, Like you'd I been searching for a copy of this book for some time. I finally tracked a copy down to the NRM in York, if you drop a line to them, they can bring it into their reference library. I was disappointed.... It's quite dated now, and as Leslie says, the IRRS drawings are of much much better quality! Richard,
  7. Hi all, Sunrise models have announced a resin kit for a GNRi Regal 3 coach in 1:72, supplied to the GNRi in 1948. Having built one of their kits in the past, I think this will be a welcome release, next month! I'd link to their facebook page, but that seems to be tricky to link through to - those of you on FB might want to take a look if interested! Cheers for now. Richard.
  8. Better get saving then, I guess! Starting to become an expensive hobby....! Richard.
  9. Yep! I've done a number of GNRi vehicles, some of which are up on shapeways. Unfortunately, with the changes to shapeways pricing a couple of years back, it made vehicles like the F16 and K15 unaffordable. That and the lack of my own 3d printer has slowed my output. I do like the W1 though, they're such a great vehicle to model! Richard.
  10. Hi all, For wooden bodied stock, the shapeways materials don't do too bad a job, in my view - with careful finishing the grained effect is ideal for wooden stock. This GNRi W1 is entirely 3d printed by shapeways (apart from wheels, couplings and buffer heads!) - the material formerly known as white strong and flexible does a great job for the 6 wheel flexichass. Cheers for now. Richard.

    Warley

    Fabulous photos all, ta for sharing! Didn't have a huge amount of time to visit the layouts with show duties to do; but it was great to catch up with Leslie, Andy and Richard. As always great to natter, and pick up a few must haves! Richard's done a great job on getting the SLNCR drawings scanned and printed.... Cheers for now! Richard.

    Warley

    See you all there over Warley weekend! If you're passing stand A, say HI, I may even be able to point you in the right direction, no doubt I'll also be able to swing by the IRRS and Andy's layout at some point over the weekend too.... Cheers for now! Richard.
  13. Colin, The diagram books as scanned in will be just up your street. I've been amazed by the quality of the scans; some real gems! Cheers for now. Richard.
  14. The IRRS drawings are being drawn up by a small team - are you heading to Warley? There'll no doubt be some copies there... Richard.
  15. Give it a go, carriage building is great fun, and I've certainly enjoyed building and designing a few GNRi coaches. It's certainly better to build in the extra width to the vehicles, if you can, it is noticeable! Cheers for now. Richard.
