Depron layout.

I've been singing the praises of depron as a great choice of baseboard material, and so when George, my four year old son, found a piece of flexitrack in "my" room, I couldn't resist his plea of creating a layout to put my money where my mouth is. And so, here we go! http://i101.photobucke...

Preferred glue is a contact cement, so both surfaces are coated, left to dry for a minute or so, then bought together for an instant grab. This can also be used to quickly build up foam structures and scenery. Just bear in mind it won't sand too well, so keep it away from the very edge if that's wha...

Btw, the spektrum dx5e can be found cheaply. I picked one up with two aircraft for £60. The chap was just going to throw it out as its so basic!

Mark, just looked at your link. Wow. A real life example of a steam punk rail car. Just look at the JV style portholes down the side, the arch doorways and the "stuck on" side window for the driver (pilot?) to see out of. I really love this and somehow want to create one in 15Gn. Ie; 15&qu...

only real difference from the earlier engines is the loco type boiler That and the shorter cab, chimney and dropped footplate, the disk wheels opposed to the spoked. The saddle is not much taller than on the 18" version, but yes, the loco is based on the Sipat class in terms of cylinders and m...

Jeurgen, the loco's are fantastic! Thank you for showing how tidy and invisible all this can be made. The problem with the micron boards is, that they are for single direction only. bidirectional boards a announced but not yet available. I had thought of that and figured that perhaps a linear servo ...

Funny enough, the flying came on leaps and bounds over the course of six month.

Sheep! They are too clever for their own good if you ask me, Michael! When we first opened, we actually entered a sheep field. We thought a simple six foot or so of duck boards across the width of the track would keep them out, but no. They simply walked between them. :? So we took them out and dug ...
