Re: Army Stock

Hi GBtrains,

They look good, but even though I am a military nerd I cannot put a name to any of the models! Have you modelled the British army, or another one?

Cheers

Re: Isolating tracks.

I have given up on the idea of isolating the tracks. It will be more expensive, but it is only one layout so I am going to go DCC! Now to cost it...........

Re: Tiny locos!

Hiya,

I keep looking at your excellent range for something new, as I have many examples of your brilliant work. I also watch your YouTube channel as well, jealous as hell for your skills in animation work.

Great to see you are still around.

Re: Cathedral

Graham,

Just being very nosey, have you got the measurements for your superb model.

And there are some amazing videos on YouTube of bells to download. I use "OffLiberty.com".

Re: Modifying Eishindo buildings 02

I have also painted another building, from Eishindo Building Set A. the house with the pyramid roof, French windows and balcony. The one I used had to have the walls painted white, the roof painted green, and I had an Art Deco-style house. I painted climbing roses on the walls as well. Let me know w...

Modifying Eishindo buildings

I think most modellers would agree that the standard Eishindo buildings, although of excellent quality, are not represntative of British outline. In the "Eishindo Building Set B", from tgauge.com, there is an L-shaped building with a balcony. I have modified two of them to be Tudor builings in style...

Re: Cathedral

An absolute masterpiece of the highest standards. You have a real work of art there, a lot of time and love to produce such a terrific model. I would love to see it in situ, with maybe a choral procession going into the cathedral, as they have at Bekonscot Model Village, (although theirs is good it ...

Re: Isolating tracks.

I will do that. I am preparing a post on how I've dealt with the rigid track so they don't look lifeless. The picture is taken of the progression, so all I have to do is reduce its size and then copy/paste the procedure.

Cheers for now.

Re: Shapeways Rates

I conducted a search on Shapeways for T-Gauge 1/450 shops and houses. It seems as if there are many missing from when I last looked back in 2018. I really wanted a good few of the hollow shops with the open window, (to become a Skoda dealership), but the ones I was looking for, if I remember correct...

Re: Isolating tracks.

Hi, I think I am moving towards using the isolating tracks on all 6 of the sidings, with the isolation being controlled by micro-switches. However, I really can't see any way of avoiding the use of a soldering iron. It will have to be pretty easy!! I currently have 3 x 9-car sets of the British Rail...

Re: The Ribblehead Layout

I must admit to being VERY impressed by your new layout, and an unusual subject as well. You have done a great job of your 3D design and printing. Is it your own 3D printer and what type? I am really struggling trying to learn 3D, my stroke damaged brain learns new things so slowly. All the very bes...

Re: Isolating tracks.

The plan is to have 3 tracks running clockwise and 3 tracks running counter-clockwise, giving a choice between 6 trains to run on the main lines. And I have FINALLY modified one of the old DC beige controllers into a PWM with a return delay of 25 seconds rather than the standard 5 seconds. I am hopi...

Isolating tracks.

I hope someone can help me out with some tips on wiring the track. I want to have all 6 tracks in my fiddle yard capable of being switched individually yet my brain can't work out whether it is safe to use the Straight Isolating Track (R-030) with the risks entailed in soldering to those tracks, or ...

Good question, Mike! I'm not really sure what is happening....
