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. One has to spend quite a bit of effort and money to populate these waggons with passengers. One reason more, not to hide ...

Re: Longstone 2

Those Smallbrook Decauville coaches look very convincing.

Re: Back in business

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.

Thank you Photobucket for destroying a million fora contributions by retiring your free photo-hosting without warning.

Re: Longstone 2

And in retrospect I wonder if the superb modellers who wrote about their layouts did us a bit of a a disservice because they all held up the ideal of a big, expensive and time consuming layout Seems none of the modellers listened to the advice from those experts. No big Gn15 layouts around in this ...

Re: A new manufacturer - in Norway

Copy and paste the Norwegian words in some translation programm. Ask you bank, how much money in your home currency they want for 860 Norwegian crowns. Or look it up in the Internet. Expect around 100 USDs.
