Re: TLM and 7mm

Not my field but others may know if Ronnie Cockburn’s casting masters, or even moulds still exist.
These, no doubt, included CR bits.
If available, or found, these could help the 7mm cause

Re: TLM and 7mm

John
I would look carefully at the cost of 3D printed wagons as it can be expensive. The design alone will have a significant cost.
That is why I mentioned resin casting.

Re: Model Wagon Company

Given that the source of MWC kits was Ian Middleditch (Chairman of the GSWRA) I think it likely that he would have made the kit available separately.

Re: TLM and 7mm

As former Chairman, I feel qualified to make comment here. This has been discussed at Committee and elsewhere. The 4mm wagons offerings were progressed by individuals making masters which could then be turned into TLM models. These individuals were volunteers, their reward being 2(?) finished mouldi...

Re the bus incident, the driver certainly made a job of taking the roof off, not just a wee scrape. I trust he was appropriately charged by the police.

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

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 ...
