Its a real shame that Gn15.info is off line. That would have shown you how we all began many years ago, when Gn15 first began using any bits and pieces we could adapt from our parts boxes. For example, my first loco was the Hornby 4 wh diesel plus a couple of wagons made from balsa wood or plastic o...

Back in the land of the living.

I'm Terry (terrystrains)and many of the old-timers may remember me from years ago. I was one of the first members of this forum and had written several items for the Gn15/info site. After a great deal of ill health, I'm back, still modelling now I'm retired and still in Gn15. Unfortunately, heart pr...

http://my.gn15.info/07.jpg I've just came back on scene after several years away due to ill health but to Christian I say this. It does'nt matter how good or bad you think your modelling is, we all had to start somewhere and in the early days making Gn15 models was definitely by trial and error. My...

(F) Small GNine display

May I offer my Gn7-1/2" loco made a couple of years ago. The loco is a 009 Roco loco with the driving car made up from an Avalon Line O9 wagon with a new top. The rest are odds and ends from my spares box. http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v676/terrysmodeltrains/GN03.jpg http://img.photobucket....

(F) Vertical Boilered Gn15 loco

Hi there all, I bought a Smallbrook On16.5mm kit at Narrow Gauge SouthWest and have altered/adapted it for Gn15. Main components are all from the Smallbrook kit (first photo shows demo model). I have used added parts from "Sidelines", a reversing lever from a Testors cablecar kit and some ...

No doubt some of the more Eminent readers of this forum will give you chapter and verse on tight radii in Gn15. As for me, well I have run a "Gnat" on 6" radius curves with no ill effects and my Hornby 06 conversion, (see elsewhere in this site) will happily tranverse the same radius....

typical

Hi Chris,

For wooden boiler lagging, I would use strips of thin balsa wood stained with wood dye, with thin strips of brass for the bands and the heads of brass panel pins for the rivet detail, but that's only how I would attempt it!!!.

Welcome to the group.

Regards

Terry

2 wheeled vehicles

Further to my last email on this subject. I have found the following suppliers of 1:24th scale motorcycles but no 1:22.5. Hope these may help.

2 wheeled vehicles.

Hi Harald, I hadn't seen that one before. However, I think it's uses are limited unless it can be taken apart and rebuilt into a more standard form. However, If the engine and gearbox are good mouldings, they could be used in a Gn15 Critter. Still, its another manufacturer I had not come across. Tha...

Hi Urban, Ah!!! Two wheeled vehicles in G. Well, Ian mentioned motorcycle kits but I have not been able to find any in 1:22 although there are a few in 1:24/25 but mainly modern and I think "TAMIYA" sell a kit of 4 modern mopeds/scooters. However, "POLISTIL" do, or used to do, a range of basic (very...

I bought the Bill/Ben complete for £14.99 and can buy a Smokey Joe (or one of its derivatives) for £9.99 and I know which I prefer, but again, it's only my humble opinion!!! Perhaps the new modeller to Gn15 should consider the Hornby 0-4-0 diesel loco also as I have done. Although it is still a &quo...

(F) New Bill/Ben 0-4-0 chassis

Hi There, I have in front of me, a Hornby 0-4-0 "Bill" that I am converting/hacking about to make another Gn15 loco. It looks a totally different beast than the "Smokey Joe" chassis, as the motor is fixed horizonally over the chassis which is heavy diecast/milled, so leaving much...
