Re: Struppe Storage Battery Locos of Lainz/Vienna

I know it has been a handful of years, but would any member know how to get in direct contact with Gerald? I'd like to ask for dimensions on this wonderful loco so I could build my own. Cheers, DB If you click on Gerald's name on the right hand side it opens up a bit of his profile, including the o...

Re: Pepper 7 Steve Bennett

Hi fellow Gnatterboxers, I have been able to talk to Steve, who regrettably still does not have a computer, and we agreed I suggest that anyone who would like to place an order with him do it manually by using the good old postal service. Even if any of his websites might allow you to order, please ...

Re: Carl Arendt site September update

The carl arendt site was a fantastic site when he was managed by Carl. Now this site is a hollow site with 2 updates per year maximum. When you write to the manager of the site you get no answer. If I may say so I think you are being a bit unfair. Carl, bless him, had retired and was therefore able...

Hi Chris,

I reckon you've created a very pleasing train, the overall size and proportions look just right.

Re: Photo hosting?

I don't have Tom's IT knowledge, but as a mod I do have editing rights over everything. As a quick test I popped over to your original Longstone thread and deleted the 's' from 'https' and voila! The photos then show. I'm doing this on an iPad, which is not as easy to position a cursor as a mouse co...

Re: Biggest scale with H0 track

There have been a few examples of people using 1/12 scale as it comes out very close to 7 1/4" gauge. Alas, one of the best of them has lost all the photos since Photobucket changed its policies. You can see the sort of thing I'm referring to as the full size version if you are a Facebook user ...

Hi Graham, The trees look great. Often a weakness in the past on some models folk do seem to be much better arborealists ( :D ) these days. As to Katie's cab sheet, well, it's always a case of beauty being in the eye of the beholder, isn't it? Horrors, but I didn't use to like the look of Heywood's ...

Hi all, I noticed in passing today when reviewing my Randim Stackum & Wrackem thread that one of the photos in that posting has turned into a PB black blob. Unfortunately that photo was by Steve Bennett. I suspect that all Steve's photos across this forum (and there are a lot of them) have gone...

There's no rule to say you can't have a backdrop on a circular (or any shape) layout. It may even be better. :D

No disaster there. You can , of course be picky about your own work and think, 'Ah yes, it would be even better if...' But I'd be quite comfortable myself about that little beastie.

Hi Graham, Ah, P Bucket (as I now call it).... At a quick count you have taken a hit on about 28 photos on your thread (goodness knows what other horrows await you if you have used P Bucket elsewhere). It is, as you may have noticed, perfectly possible to edit previous threads. You just have to hit ...

Re: Glad Gnatterbox is back!

Phew, we're still here. (Cheers Tom, how goes with the funding?)

After the great and still unfolding mess that is P Bucket it was a bit of a heart stopping moment to travel to the Gnatterbox only to find, almost Tardis like, it had seemingly vanished in time and space.

Cheers,
