T-gauge 2014 Any news?

It's probably a little early to post, but since most toy fairs happen around this time of year, it makes me wonder what new products will Eishindo announce for this year.

Re: WILL IT LOOK RIGHT /

I could be wrong, but I'm sure they were located in the Netherlands.

Re: WILL IT LOOK RIGHT /

What's wrong about a HST running in a countryside setting? Sounds normal to me. Anyway if you want freight wagons there are plenty around. Alan on tgauge.com sells containers of different lengths which look great on the adjustable chassis bogey sets. And Jesse mades diesels and boxcars and lots of o...

Re: Steam outline experiment

Well I've ordered one to see how it will turn out. It's probably going to be too wide (about 7mm) to be realistic, that and I want to see if it fowls the station platforms which is my main worry at the moment. Sadly the models still use Eishindo wheels, I'm just to use to using them in my models. I ...

Re: Steam outline experiment

Well the good news is that I finally know what is wrong with my model design.
It's mostly the side panels along the boiler, so I'll have to widen the upper part again.

Steam outline experiment

As much as I love my Flying Scotsman, the problem is you can't put a motor into it. So here is my next solution, a loosely based Merchant Navy. MerchantNavy_Test1.jpg MerchantNavy_Test2.jpg I did try to make it 100% accurate, but it wouldn't fit the 16m motor unit. So the model is way longer (which ...

Out of curiousness, what are you modelling?
An ocean of some kind?

Re: The Brass Deltic Kit - Anyone Tried it yet?

The Shapeway Deltic uses the 19m motor unit. I think the 21m is to long for the nose ends to fit properly However you need to somehow extend the couplers to make it useable for haulling. (Not to mention make it into a CO-CO wheels arrangement) It's an amazing model owning one myself. I just wish I c...

Re: Question on steam & other stock

The Flying Scotsman, as well as my other models require official Eishindo wheels. (Sorry I haven't had a chance to change all my models to UK Tgauge.com Pin point wheel designs yet) You would need 2 Bogeys for the Flying Scotsman 2 wheels for the front, and one bogey trimmed for the rear truck. And ...

Re: Question on steam & other stock

I haven't heard anyone having any issues with my Flying Scotsman model so far. So I say the signs are good for the moment. Not to sure what German locomotive the FS could be made into. (I'm not familiar with German Steam locos sorry) But painted Black with Red underframes and wheels and you'd have a...

Wheel Wear

Hey everyone it's good to be back, So anyway I ran into someone at a train show who was displaying T-gauge. After the show he contacted me about something I never noticed with my trains. On his Geared T gauge wheels, the silver coating was turning a copper colour. All the other wheels are ok, but it...
