Re: Vestvagoy / A norway harbour at 1/13.7 scale

I can't wait to see that new loco finished. It looks superb.

Re: Self-Acting Haulage Lines.

Thanks John for that very enlightening way to do trees. We also live in a subtropical area, so I will find out about growing Sedum plants.

Re: Longstone 2

Where did you cut to shorten those models, Grum? That seems like a great idea to get standard size small coaches. I may get some and make sides for them.

Re: Finally a new loco start

I mainly used Faulhaber geared Motors and looked them up on Ebay. I did get and Escap one also and they were all between $10 and $20. They have some very expensive ones which I disregarded. Pretty much any ratio you want for slow speeds.

Re: The Triple Rock RR

HO or ON30 track is pretty versatile. You do have a good collection of locos. I'm impressed with the European ones. They always look cool.

Re: The Triple Rock RR

Looks fine to me. Just paint it rusty and maybe paint a cushion for the drivers butt. Maybe some Blu-tac. Done.

Nah don't let it get to you. Post up and perhaps we can help. After all, the rest of us have difficulties with our models too.

Re: Finally a new loco start

Finally proof of concept. Now all I need to do is attach the rear chassis, swivel the front one, add a ton of lead, stick on some details and paint the darn thing. Probably a year of work the way I do it at turtle speed. Oh yeah stick the radio in.

Re: Finally a new loco start

Preview: Looks like the 2 riva chasses will fit but they need some blacksmithing first to carve off anything that doesn't look like a Mallet.
Stay tuned.
