Re: Backdrops

I made my own using a good quality digital SLR. I selected the best quality setting I could on the camera. At the time I wanted rural scenes. I chose a day where the sky was blue but had some fluffy white clouds and headed out into the country to give it a try. It took a couple of trips to get what ...

Re: New Scale, new railway

I'm even less experienced than you! Did OO9 in my youth half a century ago, and retirement brought the desire to restart, but alas with poorer eyesight and less nimble fingers I had to give up. I'm doing better with O16.5 but still haven't got a layout yet! I found this site and joined because we ca...

Re: Future model railroad adhesive in there?

This could be very interesting...

I wonder how long it will take to develop and if it will be economical for our application?

Re: Password & Email

I can really sympathise with BarryL. I have several email addresses for various reasons and numerous on-line memberships/retailer etc where I use them which means loads of passwords. I got into a fix like this and vowed never again. After some head scratching (remember, we're told never to write pas...

Re: Predictive text

Spell checkers aren't so hot. Going back a few years I'd written to the Finance section of my employer asking if I could buy some equipment for the next financial year out the the current years 'underspends'. Perhaps I should have hyphenated it as the spell-checker offered 'underpants' instead of un...

Log In...is it just me?

Since joining this forum earlier this year, I've used the 'log me in automatically' option as I do elsewhere whenever it is available. It has worked perfectly until recently. Now I almost daily find that I have to log in to access the forum. I don't clear my cache, I don't clear my history and I don...

Looks nice, seems to be a future release. The link didn't work for me but if you click on the 'News' tab, second from top, you'll find more details at the tops of the 'News' page.

It looks good, very good! I've used emulsion and it's ok. I would personally use a light (white or grey) primer on the bare wood, and perhaps give it a light sanding first to give the primer a 'key'. Are your trees removable? That is the only problem I forsee, because if I were painting the backscen...

I have sadly had a few non-payers on eBay. I know that whe it first started it was very much skewed towards the sellers but I think it has now gone too far the other way. Whilst I agree with you on the whiole, on the other hand, eBay for some time has not allowed sellers to leave negative feedback ...

What a fantastic project. I'm an o16.5-er myself and joined this forum because the practical skills are similar and I might learn...but this goes beyond that into temptation. Fortunately I have no space available for another layout so I will just have to look and drool!

What a fantastic find! The links are all superb. I went to Napton a couple of years back and walked along the canal past the site wondering what it had been.

Still a mistake, the eyes are not as sharp, nor fingers as nimble so I've moved to O16.5 - they say 3rd time lucky!

I'm Wenhaston

Well, not really...I'm Ken Crawley and Wenhaston was the name of an intermediate station on the former Southwold Railway. I have been interested in narrow gauge railways since schooldays and fairly recently took up modelling again. My first attempt was on the large side when I was 'seduced' by the L...
