Re: Storage for your valuable trains.....

Hi Doug. Hope you had a great Christmas break with plenty of time to relax and recharge your batteries ready for a hectic new year of shows. I would be interested in a set of your stock trays please, (such a simple but great idea), obviously, depending on the final costing, as and when you get the t...

Re: The Bridge

Many congratulations Doug, well deserved recognition, I don't doubt there will be more awards to follow as it's something unusual and completely different from the usual layouts one sees at shows.
Well done, your two years of hard work have been appreciated and have paid off.
Great stuff Doug.

Noel.

Re: sjrashid's 20th Century Limited J3 Hudson Steam Locomoti

Dear Mr Kupzinger. Having seen the examples of your work it is clear you are quite an experienced and accomplished modeller, and , in my view, as such, I consider your earlier comments somewhat unfortunate as you don't exactly appear to be encouraging modellers to show of their first attempts at pro...

Re: sjrashid's 20th Century Limited J3 Hudson Steam Locomoti

Hi Mattinair. That's a great loco you have there, especially for a first attempt. It is quite obvious that you intended it to represent the 'OLD TIMER' in the painting, and as it is an artists impression of the scene there is very little detail available for you to include. With regard to painting m...

Hello Doug. That's great news, I'm glad the mod was that easy. Thank you for all your efforts, I shall patiently look forward to their release, whenever you get the time to complete them. There's no hurry on my part as the layout is only just moving from the planning to construction stages. I'll pos...

Re: Can you tell what it is, yet?

Really coming on well Doug, love it. Seems it won't be long now before I have some of my fleet for the London layout. Without wishing to appear ungrateful in any way, could I ask you to consider a mod to add to this model to make the RML version, ( Routemaster Lengthened) as there were at least as m...

Wow, great stuff, well done Doug, a standard London Routemaster.
Can't wait for this to be released, the answer to my prayer.

Hi Doug. Thank you very much for your prompt reply, I'll post some pictures of the buses to help you identify them. For info An RT was The Standard 1940s/1960s AEC double decker and an RTL was the Leyland engined version, (only visible difference is a Leyland style radiator rather than an an AEC one...

Re: New products for the Talking T Gauge shop???

Hi Doug. I have started design and build on a new 'T' gauge London based layout around the 1980s/90s period featuring 3rd rail BR slam door stock and a section of LT surface line operation. I would like to ask if it would be possible for you to add some London Transport buses to your selection of ro...

Re: Zm 'Roussennac' at Canterbury exhibition.

Hi Doug. Thank you for asking, the show was very well attended and busy most of each day, with a good cross section of layouts and displays, unfortunately no 'T' gauge though. My stand was besieged by public and exhibitors alike for most of each day, with a multitude of questions ranging from 'did y...

Re: Card/paper model crack/seam filling.

Hello Ivor. I've been searching out these UV glues as I'm allways looking for alternatives for use in my diverse modelling (from T gauge railways right through to 1/14 scale radio controlled trucks), I found this, I'm going to give it a try after the holiday, see what you think. http://www.decolumdi...

Re: Lack of motivation

Hi Ivor.

Re: Fitting wheels

Hi there. I notice from your last post you say you are experiencing problems with slow running across points. I had the very same problem when I started on my Zm layout, I found that the power chassis were quite basic in their bogie pivoting and this causes a lot of the problem. Due to the way the b...

Yes, been using it for years, even built baseboards for 00 scale layouts from it. It's not particularly cheap, especially the 10mm thickness, but makes for very easy construction, and very strong if braced properly, (only need a sharp knife, measure, straight edge, and tube of 'No Nails' or similar ...
