As the build is in a Public Place I thought too much MDF dust wouldn't go down too well so some of the cutting and driiling needs to be finished prior to Saturday. Here's the Traverser works: http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v244/Gn15/Traverser3.jpg At top of photo can just be seen the control hand...

Well there were to have been three of us building it BUT one has found he's double booked, being due at his son's camping weekend. We're now down to two and 1/2, the half being our solder expert who will solder what's require whilst manning a Sales Stand. The base board framing I'll build prior to t...

The lower siding off E will go to a hidden cassette (later). Have placed backdro...

(F) Gn15 Gas Mechanical with Kadees

Anyone using Steve's cab conversion but wanting to retain Kadees can use the existing Bachmann couplings, BUT I think the resulting appearance isn't "chunky" enough. Others will disagree. Wishing to modify my pin and link Gas Mechanical I found that I had a Smokey Bottom mini-Porter conver...

I thought I'd just add that I'll log-out of my Image site tomorrow evening and after that access won't be available with the previously quoted URL unless I'm on-line adding photos.

The heater is a substantial piece of hardware, weighing in at 160 grams without stand or any gismos installed. The fire door does open. The bench is made directly from the set of plans that come with the kit so the next one I make will be a tad shorter in the leg. The bench lathe sits on a long six ...

In view of the abysmal temperatures in the UK at the moment I've built the shop heater; even then "Bruno" has still got his gloves on. As he needs a box to stand on to use the bench I'll have to find some larger scale figures, the 1:24 to 20.3 jump is too much. http://img.photobucket.com/a...

Pottery Station

Hi Christoph,
The way the Station looks I have the feeling it will be difficult to tell that it's not the real thing when you hook it all together - great modelling 8)

Looks great Steve, and with the space available (layout is now 14" wide), I think we could ditch the electric motor in roof space and install oil engine on floor with drive up to the cross shaft power system.

(F) Machine Shop

Well here's my first attempt at Western Scale Models 1:20.3 scale Machine Shop -- the Hacksaw, only a dozen pieces in this one. The floor standing lathe which is around 7" long has over 50, not sure how long that one will take to build. http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v244/Gn15/MachineShop1.j...

No I'm not about to try -- I'll let the professionals produce what I want, BUT I found this article very interesting:

Basildon MRC Traverser Layout

Though this layout will not be made until the weekend of July 2/3 preparations have to be made in order that the build goes smoothly. I've printed on card practically all the factory interior and the exterior on the side that has the exiting track BUT I can't find a Green (what else) wooden factory ...

Might just go for the wood as I've got so much -- local market trader had packs of it @ a £1 a bundle last year. As for the chevron -- don't know whether it's exactly what you're looking for but Plasticard has a range of embossed surfaces of that nature as does the American range Evergreen which is ...

Factory Traversers

Well the concept has been sold and Basidon MRC will build one of these "Puzzles" at its Annual Show in July. What I don't know yet is whether it will be 7mm or Gn15 :wink: Question posed is if factory traverser were so common way back how is it that any web search I make fails to show anything :oops...

Traverser Scenery

Having reread this thread the overall concept would seem to suit the interior of a building with the traverser representing "The Outside World". Carrying the idea one step further the interior could be that of a Rail Ferry albeit not one that carried Passenger Stock. eg:http://www.rina.org.uk/rfiles...
