Re: Macton works developments

Hi Michael, Macton is a classic gnatterbox layout and I’m all in favour of you fixing the photos. Thanks for sharing you methods and results.

Re: The Cuddle Shale Oil Company Tramway.

I’m enjoying seeing this take shape. I always liked the conceit of the left end of Andy’s plan - a boat on such a small layout, hidden by a bit of a hill and a bridge as well. I like layouts with hidden parts, and this has two others. Though sometimes nice ideas don’t translate well into reality.

Re: Estate Elongate

Wow, that’s a work of art in itself. You could almost have the Rotaverser as the model and the rest the fiddleyard. Though a different prototype.

Re: Estate Update

Is the wire solid or stranded? Solid copper wire breaks easily if it moves, and imagine that wire running in ‘concrete’ will move slightly as the material moves with temperature.

Re: Estate Update

Well, I’ve never messed with a model body. But admire those who do. My diorama book says to clothe figures with Kleenex or thin paper coated with a putty made from styrene scraps dissolved in solvent - he uses trichlorethylene. Want me to send you some scans?

Re: First micro layout (now dismantled)

Chris, I’m sorry you’ve dismantled your layout. I had a look at your thread on ngrm and that person said ‘those ties are certainly not going anywhere!’. I take this as him saying that the ties look well fastened down and aren’t going to move. Also, he is probably making a joke about your track...

Re: Free brick papers

Thanks. Some interesting tutorials there.

There are printed bricks on http://paperbrick.co.uk/ but it doesn’t seem to make PDFs any more, which is a shame.

Re: The Cordale Hall Railway

Thanks for that BBB (blow-by-blow). I’ve often wondered how to use those LED striplights. You’ve shown it’s a great way to light small interiors.

I assume the Duchess insisted on the lighting, to light the dark places where the duck could get up to mischief.
