Re: new members

Darn it is disappointing to read that the Gnatterbox is so popular in the spammers world that is preventing real modellers from joining.

Re: Self isolation virtual exhibition.

Yeah the New Zealand national model railway convention which only occurs each second year over the Easter long weekend has just been postponed so perhaps there may be some Kiwi modellers with spare time.

Re: HOn2 a mini...

Hi Chris - try soaking them in undiluted Dettol disinfectant over night. The paint should become soft and can be scraped and wiped off. Dettol contains isopropol alcohol and another chemical which seems to dissolve even acrylic paint. Dettol is also good hand sanitizer ... And if you're modelling k...

I just gave up waiting and cancelled my order with Book Depository as they still claim they can't get copies from their suppliers. Where should I try and order from?

New 1/24th Scale Model T Van

Lots of Gn15 potential as lineside or even as a railcar.

Re: (F) Scale Inflation Downunder - Dabble in 1:12th

Well I started this thread back in 2009 but it all got stuck in a box and forgotten. Recently I picked up another of the Tamiya 1/12th figures at a not to be passed up price so I've been searching for the original items with just one box found so far. https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/48965576711_...

If the online photo show the packaging it may give the radius. There are apps available for smart phones which allow you to read the Japanese characters.

Re: Bachmann release ON30 Baldwin Trench loco

Hi DCR fan, The 18' reference refers to the length of the box cars and gondolas - probably the same ON30 stuff that Bachmann have been selling as pairs for some years. I think they have used the HO scale "Porter" 0-6-0 chassis to save costs and the simplified valve gear is a compromise as...

Re: Bachmann release ON30 Baldwin Trench loco

I'm confused. Where does 18 inch gauge fit in?

The WW1 trench lines were 24 inch gauge.

Bachmann has built the locos in 1/48 scale so on 16.5mm scale gauge so the represented gauge has risen to 31 inch.
