Mark,

Well its been another 6 months or so and I am guessing there has been little or no progress on this one.
Have seen Mikes website and new creations been the lovely 1:32 aircraft but worth another ask.

Cheers

Very much interested in these details too.
I am happy to purchase the book but would like to know a little more

What is the book is about?
What drawings are included within the book?
Do they have enough dimensions to draw up a coach in AutoCAD?

Cheers

Gn15 Pizza Layout (currently with no name)

Hello all The zoo hasnt been forgotten but I have wanted for a while a Gn15 pizza layout to run my firefly loco with DCC & sound. Options were to either build one (which with family, work and the zoo layout wasnt really an option) or wait and advertise my interest in purchasing one, ideally in i...

May be a silly answer to the rotating layout and fixed base and not sure how good it would be but what about copper tape? Could be run in a complete circle on the base and layout so when the layout is placed on the base it marries up with the correct connection and when it turns always in contact. T...

Looking good David, looking forward to seeing this develop.

I must admit that I fine games workshop paints great, slightly expensive but they look great and are all matt so you don't get the unwanted gloss finish

I would never go back to humbrol (oil or acyrlic) now...

The sound chip is a one off recorded for me from an actual lister engine with class 08 horn and other suitable generic sounds, I think it was blown on to one of the small ESU Loksound decoders. I cant even remember how much the decoder cost but I believe the sound was recorded free of charge. I need...

Gn15 loco -DCC & sound

Well I know that DCC is like marmite, you just love it or hate it. Well I am a big lover of DCC (not marmite, hate the stuff) and with DCC comes sound... This is the only video I can find of the loco running (not sure what happened to the rest of them) and it was during the later stages of construct...

I could easily get in to building these.

Awesome models mark, I am looking forward to the painting of this loco and see what else is in the pipeline...

I believe a turntable or a pivoting traverser may save space length wise but the turntable would be slightly wider than a point and headshunt.

I have added on of my orignial plans loosely based on Colins Shifting Sands to my post in Zoo post ing size doesnt matter as this had a turntable.

Thanks Colin,

I have some preiser figures in the post to me and will be getting some white metal ones on order.

What are the Artista ones like?
