Here's a first: Laser cut MVR riding wagon kit

I don't believe anything like this has ever been offered before commercially. These are based on the MVR 240 series cars, with measurements provided by Jim & Tim. Foolproof slot and tab construction, everything will be buttoned up for production. I should have these ready for sale by week's end....

Re: Clarabel has a new (laser-cut) dress

What sort of postage cost is going to be on these kits to UK/Europe? Honestly, I'm not 100% sure due to the automated Shopify checkout. If it is excessive, please message me and I will send directly in a Royal Mail small packet. I believe it costs less than $10USD. Happy to use PayPal for everyone'...

New loco hopping on to the scene...

Whilst cutting the first production pieces for my "Clarabel" coach conversion, I had a chance to run this sample piece.

Any ideas what might be next from my workshop?

Re: Clarabel has a new (laser-cut) dress

Coach is approx. 8' 6" by 42" wide. That scales out to approx. 108 by 48 mm for the model. Figures sitting oppsite need approx 70 mm, so the coach is too short for 2 populated compartement. Have Fun Juergen Since I am using an existing chassis, I am somewhat constrained in altering the de...

Will the chassis come with the kit? I don't know what a "Clarabel" is? Colonist don't you know! otherDoc OK got it! It is an HO passenger car from the Thomas series. Probably difficult to source in the US. Are there any alternatives? Not difficult at all. I believe they are still freely a...

Here's the latest incarnation. I'll have to stop now as there are no lights in the shed. A giant laser cutter, but no lights. LOL I'm very pleased that the sash for the drop down window in the door came out so cleanly, even though it is only .050" across. I also changed the end, as I felt havin...

I'd prefer the chassis with no buffers if possible.

Agreed. There's really no way they would work properly either.

QUESTION: Would everyone like to keep the buffers that are moulded into the chassis or is it ok to remove them?

Re: (M) Listers for sale

Now I know this thread is a decade old, but are these locos still available? Surely someone kept the master patterns. I'd even take a built up model that has been left under the workbench.

All in all, I'd love a few of the channel frame Listers...

Sigh.
