Re: Here's a first: Laser cut MVR riding wagon kit

Can we please see this waggon with a few passengers? Children?

I assume, they will be sitting one after eacher other.

Re: Clarabel has a new (laser-cut) dress

Coach is approx. 8' 6" by 42" wide.


That scales out to approx. 108 by 48 mm for the model.
Figures sitting oppsite need approx 70 mm, so the coach is too short
for 2 populated compartement.

Re: Clarabel has a new (laser-cut) dress

How about some dimensions of the box. How many passenger will it hold?
2 compartements should be enough room for 8 seated passengers.

Two in each compartement will have no window to look out.

Re: Emett Smallbrook chassis question

Would he be more likely to mean that the edge of the wheelset base should start 16mm out from each end?


That´s the way to fix them. 16mm from the edge of the base, before buffer beams are fixed. The distance between axle centres will be 40mm.

Re: The Little Big Oak RR

You forgot to mention, they do not cost very much. So what do you expect. They scale out to about 1 : 27 - 1 : 29. Your stiff Bachmann driver figure comes in 1 : 20,3, so it is very much larger. Gn15 is modelled in 1 : 24 most of the time. Plenty of figures in that scale are available on the market....

Re: Longstone 2

The smallbrook Decauvilles have a footprint of 75 x 50mm, so in real life, less than 4 x 6 feet to seat 4 passengers, About the space you have in a touristplane. Maybe even less.

Those Smallbrook Decauville coaches look very convincing.
http://www.smallbrookstudio.co.uk/products-new/4569521214/gn15-decauville-inspection-coach/11151500

To lower the height, by shortening the windows, sounds like a very good idea.

Those Listers look as if they were made from Scotty Gn15 resin kits on Bachmann 0n30 streetcar chassi, which were offered here until some years ago.

As far as I know, the molds are worn out by now-
