Re: Building Ideas Requested

Many thanks to those who got back to me with ideas and some drawings. I have done a mock up of the Comrie signal box. I am interested also in doing a mock up of the goods shed but I would appreciate more in the dimensions. I am attaching some pics of how I went about this. First I up-scaled the draw...

Re: Building Ideas Requested

Thanks Graham,
I wanted to get access to the photo archive but wasn't sure how to go about it. Also, I don't live in Scotland and that may also be a problem,
Gympie.

Building Ideas Requested

I'm looking for some ideas for buildings that are noticeably Caledonian. I am interested in building the Kirriemuir station as that design appears to be used elsewhere. I'd like a Caldeonian engine shed and Caledonian signal box. Reading Niall Ferguson's Arbroath & Forfar Railway book page 190 has a...

Re: Diagram 46 mineral wagon fault

Here are two of my attempts at this model - I hope I haven't overdone the painting. I may have added one too many black horizontal lines. I have deliberately not added the brake because from the information in the Wagons Book, it appears that the brake guide is attached to the lower plank of the bod...

Re: CR Horse Box

Continuing with a project I started some time ago but things got in the way preventing me from completing. On page 195 of Caledonian Wagons Plate 11.10, there is a photo of a Horse Box "painted in purple brown .. . and the panels under the eves at each end look to be lined. If that is so, the remain...

Re: Diagram 46 mineral wagon fault

Sorry I didn't make myself clear - could we see a photo of your finished model - I understand the problem of the misplaced Crown Plate. I have four to do at the moment.

Hi!
Can anyone suggest where I can source brakes for the 5'9" wheels for the Caley 439 0-4-4T,

Thanks Gentlemen for your replies. That 147 post discussion had more deviations than a Mozart opera. I had been searching for that information but couldn't find it. If Tony you could post some photos of your project, I'd be interested to see it. It is annoying not knowing this at the commencement of...

CSB Question

Hi! Everyone, I did a quick search on the Forum to see if I could find any comment on CSB and there was very little - so I hope my post here does not open a hornet's nest. I am building a (DJH) Jumbo with Alan Gibson frames and High Level gear box on OO in a CSB configuration. If anyone wants photos...

Re: CR Horse Box

There were quite a few issues with building them - you'd think that by the time I got to the third one, I'd have the problems sorted. As it turned out the third one was the most difficult and has a couple of pieces of brass forming a false floor to keep it square. The body is made up of two layers, ...

Re: CR Horse Box

The project so far. I have one horse box made up - well the bits are there, the body needs fixing on the chassis properly, and the roof is just sitting on there. There are two more to complete. The build is taking a lot more than I expected. I have just given it a coat of red primer here. I am in th...

Re: Modelling Paints

Just to get this right, first coat a red oxide then followed by a coat of black. I went to Game Workshop to get their Chaotic Black - only it is now Abaddon Black. The fellow was interested in what I was painting and told him trains, and that I wanted the black as an undercoat to give the next coat ...

Re: CR Horse Box

Hi! Duncan, The kit is from London Toad Models in Watford. I am able to source alternative W irons. I have sent photos of the W irons to LRM so they are aware of the problem. Also the wheel flanges catch on the frame. I have asked for two more kits so I am not put off by this. As I said earlier, it ...

Re: CR Horse Box

Thank you for your replies. I was surprised to find a photo of a horse box in the Livery Book - interesting to note that the door on the model opens differently to the one in the photo. I had a look through the Wizard online catalogue but couldn't find W irons for CR NPCS, although they do have some...

CR Horse Box

Hi! The attached CR Horse Box would be amongst the easiest brass kits I have put together . . . except for the instructions. Another slight problem is that the W irons seem to be slightly small. I replaced the moving part with and MJT fixed component, and as well as not looking prototypical, there i...
