Peter and Gerry, thank you for sharing these photos. I didn't make it to Swanley in the end. My ambitious plans of visiting my mum in Surrey, then doing Swanley and going on to Basildon for radio controlled car racing were scuppered by my mothers ability to make cups of tea and conversation! :lol:

I remember reading an article in an old American magazine, possibly Model Railroader or Railroad Model Craftsman, suggesting that a figure could fly a small brass kite using fine brass wire as the string. Gusts of wind were then created using a fan and an irregular shape powered by a motor turning i...

Radio Controlled 1/12 Scale British Rail Minibus

I thought I'd share this on here as it has a railway modelling connection, a creation for one of my other hobbies, radio controlled banger racing! For those of you who don't know, banger racing is a cheap motorsport in the UK similar to demolition derby or stock car racing, where old vehicles are st...

Hello Dave,

I work in Reading and live near Wallingford at the moment but sadly don't have the time/money/space for much Gn15 right now. Once I survive a wedding and a house move I might be interested in getting involved.

Keep us informed of how it goes.

Another Dave

Great little layout, Kevin, I especially like the big bag of hippo food in the ticket office. I can imagine Geoff looking at the clock to see when it's feeding time and another scoop of the stuff needs to be thrown into the pool!

Considering the involvement railways have had in warfare I'm surprised nobody has combined railway modelling and wargaming yet!

I like the use of the grounded coach body in a waterfront setting. I remember the fishermens huts at Southwold Harbour, near to where the Southwold Railway used to run included one coach body and at least 2 van bodies among them.

Update time, here's a pic with the main bit of the body put together, mostly 1mm plasticard with 0.5mm for the access doors. The couplers and radiator are Sidelines as I'm sure you'll all recognise by now. The coupling pin is the top half of a size 10 or 11 fishing hook, I folded the hooked end in g...

Thanks for the comments. My current idea for covering the drive in the cab area is a square cowling over the "gearbox" and a gear lever coming out of the top, but it's going to be tight with the driver in there. I've done alot of chopping and filing to his head and right arm and don't want...
