Re: How tight a plain circle??

Thank Don for the information about Photobucket, very much the same happened to a free Web site hosting service operated by Orange. My site there had around 55 thousand hits, but then Orange decided people had to pay for hosting....I don't know how many people accepted those terms or walked away lik...

Re: How tight a plain circle??

Hello Modellers, Thanks for the replies to my question. I had a look at the New Zealand Haywards Heath? line... but no pictures only some computer advert asking me to join Photo Bucket??...As I am not very computer savvy I did not try. I looked at the other end of the messages of this line and found...

How tight a plain circle??

Hello, I want to try a Gn15 layout with a simple circuit to start with. My made up base board is four foot long by two foot wide. I have some Peco 00 flexible track to use. Can someone tell me a size radius circle to fit this size. I would be running 0-4-0 locomotives and short rolling stock on 00 s...

Re: Swopping gauge for old stuff.

Thanks Chris, Converting my 7/8th stuff was not on my mind as I hope to join a local model engineering club with a far, far better track than what's in my garden! ...No, I would be starting afresh. one thing made me debate about 7/8ths on 00 track is the over hang as regards to the wagon/track. If o...

Swopping gauge for old stuff.

I read with interest regarding 7/8th or 1.12th scale on 'oo' gauge track as I have arrived at a 'scale crossroad', so to speak. I don't need to scratch build any more rolling stock and my garden railway is a bit past its 'sell by' date. I was considering doing a Gn18 version of what is in my garden ...

Re: A chance find

When I posted this topic I was not aware of Atlas Editions marketing ploys! They tried to get me to pay for another item they 'said' I had ordered when I had done nothing of the sort and even told me I had received my order and they "wanted paying".....In the end I contacted the motorcycle...

Re: Ease of Gn15 scratch building.

Hello Modellers, ...."a very strange question"...not really. My present scale is in fact a rubber scale of 7/8ths and 1.12th scales.... to get plenty of freelance modelling done without the straight jacket of 'un-correctness'. As far as I am concrned my question was just a simple question....

Ease of Gn15 scratch building.

Hello Modellers, I am down the shed at the moment scratch building a number of 7/8" scale wagons, etc. While working away my mind wonders here and there. After this batch build of three wagons and two vans that's it as far as 7/8" scale modelling is concerned! Seeing how small Gn15 is do p...

The offer was is 'Classic Motorcycle' last month and the place the 1.24th scale bike came from was called, Atlas Editions of Empress Road, Southampton SO14 0HH . After the cheap snare of a £1.99p.

A chance find

Hello, Amongst my few hobbies is a life-long interest riding and owning motorcycles. Recently I purchased a motorcycle magazine. In the magazine I noticed a offer of buying a 1.24th scale Triumph Motorcycle for £1.99p. This a 'loss-leader' I think to snare you into buying a whole load of stuff, howe...

Regarding Modellers Resource ordering.

Hello Gn15, I am coming to the end of 7/8" scratch building and decide a few years ago to model a Gn18 version of my Amalgamated Conserves tramway. I scratch build using figures as a guide for everything. I am trying to buy some resin figure kits off Modellers Resource. On the web site there is...

Pepper wagon buffers

I have just checked the Pepper web site and it seems to be running again. Has anybody ever brought the dumb buffers that are on Steve's kits? They look plastic mouldings to me. If not its looks like being home made one's again....like I did for my 7/8" scale wagons....I saved £67 pounds plus ma...

Please forgive my ignorance but can I ask about this Photobucket thingy? If I open a account and put pictures in the account do they stop in the account or does Photobucket presume to spread them into the internet?? I have come across pictures of my 7/8" scale tramway in the web in the past and...

Re: Converting a Hornby R3065 diesel

Thanks for the reply Gerry. I am not 'new' but had to put Gn15 on hold a bit as I wanted to finish off a back-log of jobs in 7/8" scale. I need the cab controls set that Pepper sells so have to wait till the owner gets better before I have two diesels for my tramway!

I found a article on this forum on how to do this conversion but cannot remember anything about the article! Could someone do me a great faviour and tell me where I can find it...

Cannot get my head arond it.

Hello, I want a steam outline locomotive to go with my home built Gn15 i/c locomotive. Is it down to fitting a 'G' scale locomotive body to a 00 scale motor chassis? Would a LGB Porter body (for instance) fit a 00 scale Hornby??? chassis for example?
