Very convincing Steve! My two year old, Edith, just pointed at the screen and shouted "Appmama" (apples) and "Tato"..so they pass that test! Sorry for steering away from bananas Klaus :wink: Do you think I could set a 15" railway in the Hamburger Fischmarkt? That could be quite atmospheric. :wink:

Those bananas look FANTASTIC!! :wink: :D :D Fishing for compliments eh? How about fish? I wonder if we could make FIMO fish in boxes of ice? I wonder if we could make FIMO potatoes? covered in soil, freshly plucked from the Lincolnshire soil...hmm.. Seriously, the bananas are great. I still like the...

thanks guys!

I read that again - what I meant was that the photo was rubbish :wink: Looking at the figures again today they definitely have a 'character'.. grumpy old men I reckon.. a bit like the BFG...they still have some of the 'cartoon' feel to them. My only concern is the stuff I've made them out of.. Sculp...

New figures!.... nearly!

I've just fetched Harry and Eric out of the oven.. they are without hats/ hair as yet and unpainted but I'm so excited that I had to take a picture and post! :D Unfortunately my camera / photography is about as good as my soldering :? but I hope you can get an impression. Hopefully get them finished...

hard hat

I was tidying up earlier today (not my mess - my first-born!) - it occurred to me, would a playmobil hard hat be around the right size?

In the meantime, work continues on my two figures following the LargeScale tutorial(ish) .. got to do heads tonight.. the scary bit.

Saturday 5th seems okay to me, I said it out loud at the domestic authority with a questioning tone and didn't get a response beyond a shrug so I think it's safe! Not sure how much I'll be able to contribute as my experience is very limited in the world of modelling trains but look forward to meetin...

Slow reply.. sorry! I'd be okay with either of those.. Wednesday evening or Saturday evening.. depending on the date of course, but generally I have a wide-open social calendar :)

How about David and Colin?

cute little loco

Nice link Gerry.. as well as liking the loco, I love the setting - you can almost see the clouds of midges in the weedbanks..the buzz of a lazy bee crossing the line, the rare heat of a perfect English summer's day in the country. (My eyes burning with hay fever!).. I was thinking of a more industri...

Why would you want to build a boring machine? :twisted:

Like it!

Really nice neat little loco Steve. It's similar to the shape we were discussing ages ago.. definitely got me thinking about the centre cab again.. although I can't see it working on an OO/HO donor chassis.. obviously need to use a SPUD or similar. Looks like there's demand for a kit! Or are you sti...

Local eh? I have used some 1/2" scale doll house brick paper for my 'shed' on Tuther End and it looks okay but it is paper and I'm contemplating replacing it with something with more texture (the paper has a slight texture to it). I thought about using strips of plastic card cut into the right ...

hooks

Anyone else use a crochet hook?! :D I find it useful for giving the stubborn locos a little nudge too - just touch the gap between the wheel and the rail to improve connectivity

me again!

sorry, just had a play using a short pole coupling..about half inch long I guess.. loads better! I'll probably have to make one for each loco because of the height of the buffers but that's no hardship.
Gave the locos a good clean too but they're just old and cranky I guess :?

link and pins and shunting

Playing around with exactly this problem last night.. I've been busy building 'Tuther End' for the SLR and really shunting is what it's about..as Miles said, I find that when propelling in particular I have problems. My locos actually have short two or three link chain couplings and I tend to decoup...

Pole coupling

Once again I have a question pre-empted! SLR has seen some drastic rebuilding over the last few weeks. Basically Midland Road was looking okay but just no fun to operate (saggy baseboard amongst other things). I have started all over with larger board and I'm currently building 'Tuther End'. I decid...
