New 1/24th Scale Model T Van

Lots of Gn15 potential as lineside or even as a railcar.

Re: (F) Scale Inflation Downunder - Dabble in 1:12th

Well I started this thread back in 2009 but it all got stuck in a box and forgotten. Recently I picked up another of the Tamiya 1/12th figures at a not to be passed up price so I've been searching for the original items with just one box found so far. https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/48965576711_...

If the online photo show the packaging it may give the radius. There are apps available for smart phones which allow you to read the Japanese characters.

Re: Bachmann release ON30 Baldwin Trench loco

Hi DCR fan, The 18' reference refers to the length of the box cars and gondolas - probably the same ON30 stuff that Bachmann have been selling as pairs for some years. I think they have used the HO scale "Porter" 0-6-0 chassis to save costs and the simplified valve gear is a compromise as...

Re: Bachmann release ON30 Baldwin Trench loco

I'm confused. Where does 18 inch gauge fit in?

The WW1 trench lines were 24 inch gauge.

Bachmann has built the locos in 1/48 scale so on 16.5mm scale gauge so the represented gauge has risen to 31 inch.

Re: Pauls Card Challenge Layout

Oh no :( RIP. I've been stuck in bed for five days with seasonal cough and cold so probably feel a bit like the expired motor bogie. But hey only 12 years of running, what is Bachmann doing these days :P

Providing the ills disappear I'm still planning in coming over to help this weekend.

Re: Two Sister's Farm Saga

Peter M, How about this WW2 German Army car (Opel?) converted to run on narrow gauge track. I'm sure it would be right at home on the farm. https://farm8.staticflickr.com/7883/46476959785_f6d5009f80_c.jpg 1228121962_pic by tankienz , on Flickr There are several 1/35th kits of similar car available l...

Re: narrow gauge model question

12mm is just the track gauge. What scale do you wish to build in? To explain the difference: 12mm gauge in 1/35th scale = 420mm prototype gauge 12mm gauge in 1/43th scale (UK O scale) = 516mm prototype gauge 12mm gauge in 1/48th scale (US O scale) = 576mm prototype gauge 12 gauge in 1/72nd scale = 8...

Re: amoured train 15'' romney hyde

No not the 1/35th scale project but I'm just scoping a 1/48th scale version. Armoured trains either carried their own track repair supplies and workers or they were available on call so yes a train could be temporally delayed but had the ability to repair minor track breaks. Against lightly armed gu...
