Re: "This is my Land!"

Well, Broeselburg is around the corner from Kraehwinkel. I doubt that someone travels on a 15 Inch railway for longer distances. The nets are not too vast. OK, men with a Yorrick skull under the arm would normally be considered a bit outlandish or at least rather eccentric over here. You´d expect th...

Be assured, Tor-Jorgen, the maker in Norway understands the English language and can answer in an exellent English as well. I asked him for the figures he used for his illustrations. A set of modified Card Players, Preiser # 45 141. I very much like his locomotive kit plus wagon. After all, there ar...

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.

Made from whitemetal and readily painted. Bring some weight and humour to your little Gn15 steamers.

Re: Sources of figures

I wonder how the lady with the umbrella looks together with 1 : 24 figures. It seems to be a Lemax product, which are approx 1 : 27 - 1 : 29 scale. You should remove the ugly bit of concrete at her feet. If playing safe with the purchase of female figures, try some Near East prototypes: http://i42.p...

Re: Why can't sellers get the scale correct?

Simply never trust a seller who uses the term "G-Scale". G is not a scale. They eather do niot know what they are selling or try to fool their customers. In the case of this Ebay offer, is clearly states the height of the figures and the oil drums. So a customer should know what to expect....

Re: Backdrops

It is very difficult, almost impossible, to give a suitable answer to the backdrop question, if one does not know, what Chris is looking for or aiming at. Scale, seize, time, landscape, foreign or local........Since he asked at a Gn15 forum, I assume he plans something in that scale. A good start is...

Re: 1/32 scale

The Faller E-train and Playtrain ranges were nearer to 1/24th scale, ie G scale….. Axleboxes, wheels, door height, seats etc. are closer to a metre gauge prototype in 1 : 32 . But remember, they were intended as toys, not finescale models. BTW, G-Scale refers to 45mm gauge. Faller came with 32 mm. ...

Re: 1/32 scale

Faller offered for many years narrow gauge trains in more or less 1 : 32 scale. http://members.aon.at/spur1_tirol/page_6_1.html They probably had reasons why they gave it up. But you can still find very much at Ebay today for modest prices. When strolling through toy shops or departement stores thes...

Interesting to see new technology being used for resin casting, but still wonder if it will be as popular in 5 years, given the way 3D printing is going.

Re: Model Earth Budget wagons.

Not a fair comparison with 3D printing as these are big models. For at least 25 years now, I have bought and built kits made in different technologies. Regarding the 3 D models, mainly in various "G"-Scales, including Gn15, in almost all of the cases I had to spend time and money to add d...

Re: Need som sackloads?

Those figures are made from some kind of harder plastik. You´ll need a saw to cut them into parts. There are more of them in a German thread: http://www.die-feldbahnsinnigen.de/forum/viewtopic.php?f=66&t=1488&p=10209#p10209 Watch the scale. They are approx 1 : 12 / 13. Have Fun Juergen
