Re: UK Structural Drawings of Beam

Hi Guys,

Thanks for all the help. I knew someone on here would know the answers.

I have found out some real corkers on the wiring. Plumber reckoned it was the oldest Trip switch 'fuse board' or consumer unit he had ever seen and he is over 50!

UK Structural Drawings of Beam

Hello All, I have bought myself a 1950's house and am altering it inside. In the UK if we alter a loadbearing wall we have to get Building Regulation Approval and a Structural Engineer in to do the calculations. I am hoping to install a longer concrete lintel to allow me to easily move an opening in...

Go for it Igor :D

Can you remember how much they were and what height they are?

That basket looks very useful.

That's the trouble with being up north, everything is so far away. I'm halfway up Scotland at the moment which took me longer to get to from my home in Suffolk than it does to get to Hamburg.


And some people say we don't need a high speed rail network :evil: :x

Simon,

How about a mixed gauge turntable where one axis is 9mm and the other 16.5 :shock: . Should lead to some interesting shunting accidents :lol:

I am a member of RMWEB and have looked at the latest posts. They are addressing most points raised by Simon. I see they are open to suggestions as well so worth joining RMWEB and giving some input. They are going to use 3mm MDF (Masonite) for everything except the baseboard which will be 6mm. I see ...

One way of getting around the base colour of the model overwhelming the transfer colour would be to paint the back of the transfer in white. This may :roll: be easier than trying to cut it out, but would involve separating the transfer from its backing sheet.

I agree with Ian, a bit of surgery is almost a given to get the figures into a cab :lol: .

I went to a 15inch gauge line and they showed me how they squeeze into the cab of one of their locos and you could see where the paint had rubbed off where they jammed themselves in :shock:

Bachmann upping prices by 20%

Bachmann are about to raise their prices by 20% on average. :cry:

Lots of 'Buy now avoid the price rise' "offers" around. :?

Suppose it is because China is now becoming more expensive for manufacturing.

SSL compromised don't use any password sites!

Just heard on BBC news that the Secure Sockets Layer encryption has been breached and that logging on to things like your bank can give your password to criminals. DO NOT go on to change your passwords as this will still allow them to get in later. STAY away from any site you have to use a password ...
