Re: Diesel Locos

Thanks for the reply Chris. These loco's ( + a quite a lot of rolling stock ) were from Blackdog. I was wondering though, with the different threads on here about Steve Bennett, whether you can still obtain the stuff on this website ?

Diesel Locos

Hi chaps. A few years ago I built a few diesel locos ( photo attached ) and wonder if these resin kits are still available anywhere ?
I am hoping to get back into this brilliant 'scale' soon and need to do my homework first.

Kind regards

New loco

Hi chaps - and a Happy New Year to you all. Thought I would share images of a loco I have completed, part scratch-built but using some of the excellent accessories that Steve B. supplies. I wanted to try the look of a contractors ' yellow' finish to the loco to see if it suits Gn15. Pictures show th...

Realistic track

Hi chaps. I am about to start a new layout ( 1:24 ) using Peco 16mm n.g. track but I want to try and create a better / more spaced out look of the sleepers, probably by making a pile of wooden ones / removing some of the Peco plastic sleepers / webbing etc. I saw a thread on here a while ago where o...

Figures

Hi Geoff I managed to model some figures a few years ago when I was more into 16mm and 7/8ths modelling and followed Rob Bennetts method at the time, of a wire framework ( soldered at necessary places ), and covered in Fimo. Since then Rob developed '' Busy Bodies '' quite successfully and moved ont...

The pale blue piece behind the Landrover is not a permanent fitting, it was just 'propped' up there to show the trees / and to hide the ''clutter'' on my workbench !
Never enough time to tidy up eh'?

I know this has probably been a topic posted many times before, but scrolling through the archives I can't find what I am looking for. What is the 'ideal' minimum radius for use with the little Hornby 0-4-0 chassis's ? I want to start a simple layout for the Smallbrook Katies I have which have an ap...

Thanks again guys for the comments. Chris : the fiddle yard has not been made yet, but intentions of a simple (1) point to (2) sidings - about a 18''long to simply ''slot in '' when operating. Thanks also 'Francke ' - it's your '' Woolacombe '' layout that inspired me to continue with the beach theme.

Thanks guys for the kind replies. The little building by the platform is a potting shed laser-cut wooden kit from http://www.petite-properties.com and is a simple kit to alter and build.

New layout

Very inspirational and excellent modelling. Keep it simple - it works very well ! Are the chassis's both Smokey Joe's ? They seem to run nice and slow I assume with added weight ?
Nice work !

Nice work Jack. Is the Landrover one of the Haynes' 1:24 diecast models ?
The green you have used looks spot on for the vehicle - is this a Humbrol colour ?
