'Take up the slack'

No, never, please don't, as in see below at the great Coffee Pot get together about six years back.

Re: Modelearth modelling: 1/12 on 00 track

Here's three more photos from Si's modelling. Each is full size if you are viewing them on a large enough screen (this time, perhaps because the photos are small files, the forum software has not reduced them in size); check the dimensions in my post above. Easy to now print out if you like, especia...

Re: Modelearth modelling: 1/12 on 00 track

I seem to have missed a little bit of info in my post above.

That is, the train in the photo, when seen actual size and excluding couplers, is 23.5cm long.

There, now you can enjoy it even more. :D

Re: Modelearth modelling: 1/12 on 00 track

Hi Gerald,

According to Si:

‘The loco was originally built around a Lima chassis, I upgraded it prior to
painting with a Tenshodo spud 34mm wheelbase on 14mm wheels, purchased from
Scale Link.’

Modelearth modelling: 1/12 on 00 track

Some time ago Si Harris of Modelearth built a handful of 1/12 models for 00 track, thus giving a reasonable representation of 7 1/4" gauge (actually closer to 7 3/4", but who would cavill?). He's recently painted them and loaded the resultant pics in both the 7/8ths Lounge and Narrow Gauge...

Re: (F) Supersize Me -- 1:12

This has long been one of my favourite layouts. Actually it's probably more a diorama. I had the pleasure of seeing it back in 2010. As Steve wrote at the beginning of the thread: 'OK, I know I spend most of my time modelling, but I was determined over the holiday to model just for me, no commercial...

Still modelling Gn15 or just looking?

Hi guys, Having a little look at the numbers of Gnatterbox members still involved I found it modestly heartening that some 200 members have signed in at some stage this year. So, we might be a little quiet with regard to posts but at least there’s still interest out there. Which made me wonder, if y...

Re: Greenhouse Sidings by Richard Andrews

I've found a way to improve and speed up my 'snatch from the jaws of P Bucket' technique, so here's a bunch more photos that we thought weren't going to see the light of day again.

Re: Simplicity Sidings

Right, found a new way to get at what I want. Expensive on my time and effort, but hopefully fellow Gnatterboxers will agree it's worth it. What follows is not every photo by any means and you'll have to perhaps copy and paste Steve's 'words and music' into a separate doc (perhaps print it out so th...

Re: Simplicity Sidings

I think P Bucket's system might have got wise to it but I've managed to grab (no, don't ask me how) some 20 of Steve's Simplicity Sidings photos out of the depths.

Sadly I'm not sure you're going to get an answer Graham as Roger hasn't signed in for a couple of years (you can always check by clicking on a bod's name under their avatar and look at the 'Last active' date in their Profile).

I thought I’d bring this thread back into play since it’s another Simplicity Sidings based little layout with surviving pics (they’re in our own Gn15 storage).

Re: Eaton Hall & Co cakebox layout

Cardboard mock ups are great fun and so cheap.

A suggestion if I may: add a door space to the right of the loading bay with the steps incorporated into that. The loading bank should then be 'all of a piece' and large enough to have a couple of wagons being serviced at any one time.
