VirGn15!

Postby Robert Leach » Thu Oct 04, 2012 10:11 pm

Hello there!
I normally model in OO (I have a loft layout). I am disabled with cerebral palsy ( very limited use of my left hand) and am unemployed. Im not after the sympathy vote, I mention it because I dont have the finances to purchase expensive RTR locos and rolling stock.(I normally buy second hand or given new for birthdays or Christmas!)
However, Ive recently discovered Gn15, which gives me the chance to use my existing OO locos and truck as a basis for modelling new models from "scrap" materials.

Thanks, Bob. Im having problems already!
Im registered with various forums, eg Airfix Tribute Forum, and have been able to upload photos from my computer during the writing of a message by clicking the "Upload Image" button. However, with Gnatterbox it appears that photos have to be uploaded via Photobucket , for example. Im not familiar with this process, and I do have lots of images to share. Do you or any other members have any advice (please!)?
