Re: Emetts Beach

Well done.

9" radius is loads for Kadee couplers in my experience. Hopefully not too long until the next installment.

Re: Amalgamated Munitions and Particle Beam Weapons

I've been very lockdown lazy over the past while, and have done a lot of reading, snoozing, eating and watching TV rather than anything productive such as modelling.  That said, I'm almost through the 1930 year of "The Railway Magazine", and quite wonderful it is, too.  I've also been work...

Re: Amalgamated Munitions and Particle Beam Weapons

Slow but steady advancement, well punctuated by by lots of "testing". I'd forgotten how much fun a nice, slow running shunting puzzle is to lose yourself in.  The final rolling stock lineup will be this: https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/49761580527_216f0f25db_c.jpg 20200411_165432[1] by...

Some more progress.  I made and fitted buffer stops, and also a small low platform to keep fuel, oil and a few tools on for the locomotive: https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/49754322677_4b8e5affeb_c.jpg 20200409_181621 by lesmond2009 , on Flickr The drum is the wrong scale, but will do ok for a 25...

Re: Amalgamated Munitions and Particle Beam Weapons

Some more done over the last couple of days. I made a low relief (10mm) warehouse and a loading bay: https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/49738661568_bb3ec4b73a_c.jpg 20200405_180329 by lesmond2009 , on Flickr As of today it has a roller door and a coat of paint: https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/4...

Re: Amalgamated Munitions and Particle Beam Weapons

This one has taken a bit of a leap forward today, given that I had the Gnine locomotives out yesterday for some fettling seeing I'm at home. Using some more foam core, I made a base for the main () board (I did this a week or so ago; ignore the wires for now): https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/497...

Amalgamated Munitions and Particle Beam Weapons

I've become taken with micro layouts. There. I said it. The weight is lifted :D . Heresies at present include an N gauge "plank", and an HOf cake box. There was talk on NGRM Online of a lovely laser cut box containing clementines to be found in Aldi which would make the base of a very smal...

Re: Estate Update

That is an odd one, Bill. The assumption would be that a fixed wire, in a non moving location wouldn't break. This being railway modelling, however...

At least you were able to track it down without having the stress of the public gaze on you as well :D .

Re: Currently un-named scrapyard

I'm sorry to announce that this project has been scrapped (see what I did there?) :roll: as there's too much else to be getting on with, and I was never too happy with it to begin with. Bah.

Re: Estate Update

That IS good news Bill. Intermittent faults like that will always show themselves at the most inopportune moment - there's probably a thesis in there somewhere :D

Re: Currently un-named scrapyard

Thanks Peter.

I've a lot of scrap OO wagon bodies - bought broken etc from "under the table" boxes at shows for donor Gn15 chassis which can be Dremel-ised and used, but charity shop toy boxes etc will be taking a good hit as well :)
