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...

Re: Estate Update

It had become clear, well to me at least, that your b****y smelly engines that now won't go around you corners, need to replaced by modern, economical infernal combustion locomotives with nice petite wheelbases or even better mounted on a pair of bogies. Retire those boilers to heat the big house. :P

Re: Belle Lane - "Little Andi"

HaHa - smashing - I do remember you and your modelling. If I remember rightly there was quite a few of us back in the day that really championed whimsy.

1/48 Rail Jeep

Recently I have been dabbling in 1/48 plastic military vehicles for new Pacific Island aircraft layout (aka a big display diorama) with accompanying former Japanese Navy 2ft gauge tramway. So I got me interested in 1/48 as a non aircraft modelling scale and I have returned to a former subject I used...

Re: Whangaparoa Railway

Wonder if the steam train has gone to Driving Creek. When he was alive Barry alway wanted a steam loco. While climbing the big hill was not an option the short flat firewood siding was considered suitable for steam.
