Gauge decision: probably at least 80% of 16mm scale bods play on 32mm rather than 45, but naturally all G scalers are 45. As commented, any Regner and many (but not all) Roundhouse locos are gauge adjustable. Roy's VB loco is not gauge adjustable. Shunting: something slow and geared like a Regner i...

Hiya, Not sure if these will be of use but I dug out a few rather grainy shots of the GVLR Deutz.... http://i251.photobucket.com/albums/gg315/gomphus_photos/GVLR%20Deutz/Img6910_2.jpg http://i251.photobucket.com/albums/gg315/gomphus_photos/GVLR%20Deutz/Img6909_2.jpg http://i251.photobucket.com/album...

Oh what a shame about the show Scott.... Its such a cracking model, really looks the part. I agree with dieselwater, those shots through the shed are great! As a mainly lurking gnatterboxer I just wanted to check something....I assume that the track plan is an end to end rather than continuous....bu...

Thanks a lot for the input Steph, you are spot on with the yellow element. I guess though it does depend on the environment we are modelling and you are quite correct, coastal plants do have more blue in them. Without getting too technical, plants which originate from shady and moist environments d...

I cannot stop being amazed by this forum and the stuff that comes out of the fertile minds on here.... I will have to start building soon in Gn15, its just I've been pigeonholed to produce a minimum space layout in 7/8ths now :shock: One observation on the colour of the plants, speaking as an artist...

Hiya Rob....

Loved this idea when you put it on the SE Lounge, I keep meaning to have a bash at something like Steve's Simplicity Sidings in Gn15 and 7/8ths or 1/12th, but its getting time at the moment to sit down and start!

Cheers

Shhh I'll keep it quiet if you do Steve :twisted: That 1/12th Lister is nice.... I was thinking of thin MDF rather than card for the cladding on the bigger option, but it might be fun to see if it would work with card.....Like you I reckon it would actually take the weight, as long as you didn't dec...

Now this is inspirational stuff. As someone yet to get round to actually making something in Gn15 this is great...I'm keeping my eyes open for a suitable piece of polystyrene! Its got me thinking in my "main" scale of 7/8ths too! Now as a beginner I just have to ask how Gordon did the bric...

Hi Martin, Just a thought, we are at the right time of year for all sorts of plants to be getting their seed heads....I have used dead Sedum flower heads covered with scatter etc as trees etc on smaller scales, maybe they would make bushes etc in larger scales?

but maybe too dark? Looks OK compared to the one down the road from me in Belper (next door to Holbrook for those from elsewhere!), of course it depends on pollution etc's action on the stones, that ones next to the road...... But thats from the photo, its always different in real life, never have ...

Ohhh that gave me a turn, seeing the next village to me named on the Gnatterbox! :o

That Wall is awesome, cannot wait to see progress.

I must get round to starting GN15....7/8ths is just too big for indoors!

All the best

Thanks for the comments guys, especially as its the "wrong" scale at the moment! :) I agree Steve, they do need to be lower...I hadn't really thought about it thanks. I reckon I actually should have done them lower in 1/12th too, but being a mean so and so, I used wheels etc I already had ...

Hi all, Be kind :), this is my first post on this great forum, after being a "lurker" for ages..... At the moment I am in the planning stages of a small Gn15 or G9 line, probably based on a plant nursery, but time has not been on my side just yet! Will post when I get my first stuff built!...
