Re: CR Cattle Dock/Pens

Tony I agree that 3D printing would be expensive, but hopefully useful as patterns for casting. I have sent one part for 3D printing to ascertain the problems, or not. This will, however, take some time. If the part is successful, I will get the other parts printed and send to you. I have not includ...

Re: CR Cattle Dock/Pens

I have designed the parts for the cattle pen, from Jim Watt’s original design but have yet to get them 3D printed for evaluation purposes.
If suitable, my plan was to get see if they could be resin cast.

Re: London Road 123 kit

Alan
I do not have the kit but have looked closely at it on several occasions.
I cannot comment on the correctness of the castings but they are of high quality, as you would expect from LRM
Contact John Redrup of LRM, who is invariably very helpful, for further info.

CRA drawing: Engine Tender for Pugs Drg. No 51

Does anyone have an original (printed) copy of the above?
The one on the "Wagons" CD is not of great resolution and is slightly off square.
I would prefer to borrow, or buy, the copy but a high resolution scan would suffice.
Can anyone help?
Thank you

I had the good fortune to live on the other side of the dual carriageway from John. I would be interesting to know when it was done and who did the ...

Re: Strathyre Station gardens.

The “ERROL” on the lamp appears to have been done with flash glass which has a layer of colour fused to the white (clear). The colour is masked and etched off, with hydroflouric acid - very nasty stuff - and, as can be seen, the result can be quite stunning. I did some work with flash glass as part ...

Re: Dock Tank Deviations

I would certainly protect the window bars - why not use some masking tape - that is what we used for masking glass prior to grit blasting, the grit used being coarser than 180/200.
The lamp irons will probably be ok but try out on a wee strip of scrap brass first

Re: Dock Tank Deviations

Great work. Re grit blaster, I made a wee cabinet but Allan Goodwillie used a largish, clear poly bag which I thought was great - easy to collect and reuse the grit. It is useful, also, to have a very fine sieve to filter out any larger debris that may clog the nozzle. Haven’t used mine for some tim...

Re: TLM RY Pickering Traders Wagon

My piece was in Scalefour News, issue 196, about using black styrene to represent nuts etc. The contrast of black against white styrene made positioning much easier - using a No.11 blade, of course.
I can provide a screenshot for anyone interested - please send me a pm

Re: TLM 2020

Thank you Alan.
I had idly thought about making a stencil but in clear plastic (acrylic) sheet, to aid alignment, but wondered if there was an easier way.
On reflection, the picture shows the CR does not “straddle” the diagonal brace - a case of when in doubt, read the instructions!
