  1. Matt’s 3D printing workbench...

    Well, I suppose everyone will be happy to see what a japanese model shop looks like ... or at least I am !

    Well, first of all I don't know what your model should look like then it's quite difficult to judge from the picture you put, maybe seen from a different angle would help, but the essential is that you're satisfied.

    Well, surely not a big investement, now it's up to see what the result will be
  4. new year new project

    And furthermore one's happy to be addict too Back to the problem, as Bob said the use of bolts and nuts will solve everything.
  5. new year new project

    Not really sure I understood the problem, do you mean that screws are driven into aluminium without having wood at the other side? and, if so, I can't understand what they're there for.
  6. Even better! Have a go and show us what comes out
  7. I went down to 20 cms in 016.5 scale, of course only short wheelbased engines and wagons were allowed to run on it. For a Mk2/3 coach I'm afraid they will be quite ugly looking on such tight curves
  8. Terminus, All Change!

    Well, after Europe and the USA where will he take us? The american episodes were really interesting.
  9. N Gauge - Tightest Radius Turn?

    Not so acquainted with imperial measures, but it seems to me that such a train will take the entire curve, won't it?
  10. N Gauge - Tightest Radius Turn?

    Well, can't remember where (maybe Carl Arent's site) I saw a "layout" built around a 1£ coin (or something like that) so 10/11 inches may fill every need ... it depends on what you want to run on that curve too as a full size HST couldn't feel ar ease
  11. Terminus, All Change!

    Hi Dave, a liitle off topic question, does your friend in Hong Kong speak japanese too or is he in touch with someone practising this language? Because I found a 1970 japanese book on tramways and I'd like have it translated. Thanks in advance

    Nice indeed !
  13. A layout I once had

    Don't even mind, we're all playing here!. Perhaps I badly expressed my sensations, what I meant was that "Walmington Pier" has been succesful because of its realism while a terminus without an hidden end is (at least to me) quite unrealistic. Near me there's a local club that has a "totally open" gauge 1 shunting layout which is interesting just because its size is not a common sight. Bye

    OK ... I'll shut up
