Still modelling Gn15 or just looking?

Hi guys, Having a little look at the numbers of Gnatterbox members still involved I found it modestly heartening that some 200 members have signed in at some stage this year. So, we might be a little quiet with regard to posts but at least there’s still interest out there. Which made me wonder, if y...

THREADS REVIVED WITH PHOTOS

Please excuse the 'shouting' use of capitals in the thread title, but having found a (slowish) way of grabbing photos back from P Bucket no matter who put them there I wanted let you all know about threads which are being brought 'back from the dead'. Please note, it is, sadly, far too much work to ...

Re: Greenhouse Sidings by Richard Andrews

I've found a way to improve and speed up my 'snatch from the jaws of P Bucket' technique, so here's a bunch more photos that we thought weren't going to see the light of day again.

Re: Simplicity Sidings

Right, found a new way to get at what I want. Expensive on my time and effort, but hopefully fellow Gnatterboxers will agree it's worth it. What follows is not every photo by any means and you'll have to perhaps copy and paste Steve's 'words and music' into a separate doc (perhaps print it out so th...

Re: Simplicity Sidings

I think P Bucket's system might have got wise to it but I've managed to grab (no, don't ask me how) some 20 of Steve's Simplicity Sidings photos out of the depths.

Sadly I'm not sure you're going to get an answer Graham as Roger hasn't signed in for a couple of years (you can always check by clicking on a bod's name under their avatar and look at the 'Last active' date in their Profile).

Re: Orchard End

I thought I’d bring this thread back into play since it’s another Simplicity Sidings based little layout with surviving pics (they’re in our own Gn15 storage).

Re: Eaton Hall & Co cakebox layout

Cardboard mock ups are great fun and so cheap.

A suggestion if I may: add a door space to the right of the loading bay with the steps incorporated into that. The loading bank should then be 'all of a piece' and large enough to have a couple of wagons being serviced at any one time.

Hi Brian, Welcome to the Gnatterbox. Although it’s Gn15 Chris Krupa’s ‘Matthews Corner’ is well worth a look. Alas the great P Bucket hosting disaster has hit the pics in here, but the thread remains, go to http://forum.gn15.info/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=9458 Althought the write up is in French there...

Re: Save 10% at my Gn15/G9 store. Limited offer!

The website doesn't run super smoothly from my iPad, but well enough to see that the scale is given as 1/24 with dimensions of the original prototype.

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...
