Re: TLM Etch

Thanks for your interest Steve There are lots of things we could put on an etched sheet but there are all sorts of things to be considered to make this a reality. The first is that the etched sheets are approximately 12" square so we would need to fill the sheet with goodies. This would then require...

Re: McIntosh Patent Brake

Thanks Alan

Excellent work and an inspiration to all of us who have the McIntosh brake etches.

I40 solder is available as 138 solde4r cream from Carr's in a syringe. Very useful stuff!

Re: TLM Etch

Help!

Has anybody received an unexpected gift of a small packet of CR05 Old carriage axleguards with their order? I can't find them and after an extensive search at home all I can think is that I inadvertently put them in somebody's order.

Postal Charges

In a previous post I suggested allowing £2 for postage for a set of signal parts. I was a bit overcautious and discovered yesterday that at least two sets of signal components will go by first class post for 98p.

So why not treat yourself.

Alba/Decent Models 7mm kits Lindsay and I finished up with very similar solutions to convert the underframe to a real Cleminson operation. John Boyle didn't allow for sufficient vertical play in his original design. The same artwork was used for the 4mm and 7mm etches so the problem exists in both ...

Re: Tony Brenchley's Van Roof

Further to my last post the GA for the Diagram 11A CCT gives the roof thickness as 1 inch. The plasticard I am using for the D3 vans and CCT is 0.3 mm which is as near as I can get to the prototype dimension.

Re: Tony Brenchley's Van Roof

In my absence I missed this thread as well!! The roof needs to be thin as in the prototype these were made up of thin boards, probably not much more than one inch thick covered with canvas and then painted to make it all water-proof. The answer to Alan K's question is that I form the roofs for the T...

I can't find a photo of the Conner underframe with motor and wheels in place. While I sort myself out to take one I have attached two photos that show the underframe and motion under construction. The observant will note this features split frames and continuous springy beams. Tony B. 012.JPG 028.JPG
