Re: HOf Busch Feldbahn set

I'm thinking about this too - it would work nicely as a 3" gauge model engineering or park line :D

Like I've nothing to do...

Re: Currently un-named scrapyard

Thanks Peter.

I've a lot of scrap OO wagon bodies - bought broken etc from "under the table" boxes at shows for donor Gn15 chassis which can be Dremel-ised and used, but charity shop toy boxes etc will be taking a good hit as well :)

You'll be lucky to find any rivet counters on here :D

Nothing to apologise for with either model, either

Thanks Christian - good to see another Gnine modeller. The original pizza looked like this: https://live.staticflickr.com/1925/44098465665_444412e45f_c.jpg DSCF1980 by lesmond2009 , on Flickr and after many, many misadventures now looks like this: https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/47898290571_df3f...

Currently un-named scrapyard

GNine seems to have worked for me. When I say the "G scale on 9mm track? Are you mad?" heading to this section, it was "challenge accepted" and has mostly gone from there. So far "Road Runner" and "Charlie the Choo Choo" have come about and worked well enough,...

Re: Pepper 7 - Steve Bennett - Howard Martin - announcement

I had a good chat with Howard at Narrow Gauge North yesterday, and also bought some long sought bits of Steve's from him.

Steve apparently is a lot better, very glad to be away from the "business" end of the operation, and casting 6 - 7 hours a day.

Very good news indeed.

Re: Huge tools (sorry)

That's a lovely thing Andi.

Very substantial, yet compact and portable. I'd not thought of bed slats or M6 sized bolts tbh.

Thanks for this :)

This one has been asleep for longer than it really ought to have been, but there has been progress on other fronts. The plan all along has for the three baseboards to mount on to four trestles, and up to very recently I've been struggling to come up with a suitable design (to be fair I've not given ...

Re: Variant of the Carl Arendt SAP Line

Today saw the basic structure finished (no door / windows yet) and temporary fitment. A slight modification was needed to the wood strip above the control panel (15mm or so had to go) but that was it. Held in place with spring clamps it looks like this: https://farm5.staticflickr.com/4703/4017688793...
