Modelik Kits

Hello, does anyone happen to know if the Polish company Modelik ships to North America? or if there is any where else to purchase from them if they do not. I have been looking on their website but haven't found an answer and would like to purchase a kit from them.

Thanks in advance,

Tom

I always try to do things the hard way I guess, but now I know don't cut, score and snap.

Thanks for the tutorial on the fence Steve!

Finding out things are not as simple as I thought. I began siding the walls with strip wood. http://i645.photobucket.com/albums/uu172/kf4mat/wall.jpg Lesson one, building the sub-structure was a bad idea, and I should have waited and put the siding on before I built the box. As seen in the above pho...

Hi Tom the roof pitch of the shed is determined by a standard formula they are 3:12 shallow 4:12 6:12medium 8:12 12:12 45 degrees 14:12 16:12 steep where the first number is the rise and the second number is the horizontal distance. A common slope is 4:12 or 6:12 Thanks Michael I will put this info...

Okay gentleman, appreciate the input! Of course now I'm left wondering if I didn't jump the gun; it might be better if I had put the strip wood siding on before gluing it up into a box. It seems to me I wouldn't have to cut the wood to exact length as I will if I stay where I am now. Guess I haven't...

Attempting to scratch build

Okay, Since I am going to finally get around to building a layout I thought I would give making a small building a shot. The base structure is just corrugated cardboard and I am going to try a wooden siding material, clapboard I guess it's called. It is an 8 foot by 10 foot 1:22.5 scale shed, as sho...

Is it safe to assume this loco was designed to be fed from an overhead supply?

Everything helps to one degree or another....

Would be nice to have some local source for some needed items though. Actually even better would be a local Gn15 interested carbon based bipedal life form to get together with.

Power Bogies

Hi all, Anybody know of a supplier of Tenshodo power bogies over here in the former colonies? My Google searches only seem to locate a UK supplier and loads of really expensive steam loco's. I would like to purchase a Hornet from Steve's website but would like to keep the cost down by not having to ...

Sleeper spacing in Gn15

Hi all, Me again, I never really go away I just stay in the background and marvel at the talent on display. But to my question, I've never hand laid track and for that matter wouldn't even know where to begin. So, for those that use set track and flex do you modify the ties (sleepers) or just go wit...

(F) Could this be the one?

While I'm still waiting on my Hornby engine from Hatton's to clear US customs I've been looking at lots of other things. One item on my "to do" list is an OO scale British style layout. The other is a Gn15 layout for my office at work. So anyway received a message from the small-layout-des...

Possible leaning to building this into a IC type shunter style thing; but then again I really like steam power so we'll see what wins in the end. As an electricia...
