Re: Protecting weathered buildings

Hello TWD, If you do want to use a spray then "Media Range UV protection spray" will do the job. I print my buildings onto paper and use the spray I tried all sorts of things to stop the water from the glue when I put that ground cover stuff capillaring up the paper.

Re: An 0-4-0 loco from card - for the Skarffe Lt Rly - Powered chassis video

Hello TWD and Hello all, The PWM arrived and I've done a comparison video here. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yBY-7xNuLNA Sadly the PWM does not have any feedback and will not go slowly, well the slowly I am used to and the take off point is erratic. This as they say is what you find. Cheers - J

Re: LBSC Van - Cardboard

Hello MG, Thank you for saying that good of you.

Re: LBSC Van - Cardboard

Hello LC&DR, Thanks for your comment it's very kind of you. As for the paint ' me too' the thought of doing it fills me with dread :-) Such is life, I've got 4 wagons that I am slowly making. Andy Brown sent me some PDF's and amongst them was this https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/50660214712_67af...

Re: LBSC Van - Cardboard

Hello Barry and Hello Mick, Thanks for the nice comments very good of you both. All I've bought is the wheels from Invertrain about £9 I do buy 4 at a time so with the postage it's probably about £10 per pair. Cheers - J [edit] It's not going to look anything like a kit or RTR though, but from a rea...

Re: LBSC Van - Cardboard

Hello all, Getting on with my van https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/50653905656_1785a6da77_o.jpg I tried blobbing PVA mixed with talcum powder it worked OK but it dried a bit too quickly. I then found that Seccotine lasted much longer, it does need to be quite thick. I had to start again because I...
