A belated 'How Do?'

Postby MrPlantpot » Sat Jan 21, 2012 3:02 pm

Hello everybody, I'm Steve, and I'm completely potty!

I joined the group in November '11 after doing a Googly search for loco cab details, and finding a piccy that was in a post on here.
I already have 29 posts to my name, but having a spare 5 minutes I read "New Here? Read this first" :oops: ...... Thought it might be a nice idea to say 'Hi'
I'm not new to modelling, having started with Airfix stuff back in the 70's, but I am newish to railways in general, and even newer to Gn15. As I've put in my signature, I'm trying 1:32 scale narrow gauge; inspired by Christopher Payne's 'Port Pyn' after reading about t in Railway Modeller, circa '95. He won't remember me, but I did meet him at an exhibition about that time. I have however been unable to do any modelling for about 10 years, and am starting again from scratch.
I feel the urge to attempt a Gn15 critter, partly in order to 'fit in'; but also to see what I'm missing out on :wink:
I will be doing an SBS, so would like some advice as to where to start the thread (does it just go in Modelling Matters?). All coments cheerfully accepted :D
My Mum calls me Steve.
1:32 on 16·5mm track. Gnot strictly minimum gauge... but it is the minimum that I'm working with !
And now... a critter in 1/24th... from scratch!

Welcome Steve 8)
Any Gn15 modelling does indeed go in Modelling Matters.
Please post your 1:32 scale on 16.5mm track in gNot Minimum Gauge.
Be warned though Gn15 is addictive, next will be some wagons, then will be a small layout and before you know it, you'll have a barn full :roll:
Enjoy your pottering :lol:

Needs to stop procrastinating and start modelling

You'll fit in just fine with my collection of singing potatoes, welcome aboard 8)

If at first you don't succeed, use a bigger hammer.

The only thing that keeps me sane, is the friendship I share with my collection of singing potatoes....

Never knowingly sensible!

dose anybody fit in as we all model to the same standard our best :lol:
if we all modeled the same what a sad bunch we would be, we all do our own thing here (no offence ment to all members and lurkers)
