N Gauge Discussion / Re: It's starting to get expensive....again!
« Last post by Calnefoxile on Today at 12:33:00 pm »

Due to unforseen circumstances my purchasing power has been somewhat very diminshed in the last couple of years, fortunately those circumstances are starting to recover favourably, so I'll be able to start flashing some cash soon. So what's going to be on the list, well:

Revolution IZA's - Just got to pay balance for triple pack of original livery
Revolution Sturgeons  - Just been checking Mr. Bartletts site and nearly keeled over, it seems that due to my modelling era (75-85) I really should be ordering, some Black ones and Olive ones and could possibly get away with Red ones, but I'll probably leave the Red ones, so at least a couple of each Black type & Olive.
Revolution VEA's - now this is a tough one, as the NGS do the Vanwide which can be modelled as a VEA or VVV albeit with a standard Peco chassis  :hmmm: :hmmm: :hmmm:
Revolution Cemflo - Yep, will be ordering a few of these, although I imagine a rake of 20+ is out of reach.
Revolution 128 - At least 1 in BR Blue, although I do already have one of Pauls bodies, might go for Red Star Red on this one.
Dapol 50 - Got to have a couple of these I think
Dapol 86 - May buy a couple of the new releases
NGS Hunslet - Deposit paid, just got to pay off

The rest will be just made up of general stock purchases as and when.

Although much to @free debt man pleasure, Mrs Calnefoxile has intimated that she would quite like me to model modern German  :o :o my reply to that was, "Well you'd better get doing some overtime then"  :D :D

I do have a few kits that need finishing off, like @Skyline2uk I have a Shark to finish, although mines built just needs decals. I also have an NGS Cartic 4 which I keep opening the box and looking at and quietly putting back muttering "One day".

So I either need to rob a bank, win the lottery or sell the Wife, can't sell the kids they've all b*&&^%d off already.

Cheers

Neal.

BUT the track is there and the trains run nicely, so maybe I will just sit and watch the trains   ;)

I think I've been doing that for about 4 years now :-[

Bit more research,



If anyone has any memories, or better yet, photos of guest houses / B&Bs in the late 40's / early 50's regarding how they looked and signs on them any information is greatly appreciated.

T'aint just the trains. It's the windmill sails turning, too. Great stuff.
By heck, but some of the clearances are tight, especially the tunnel mouth and the autocoach :goggleeyes:

Looks good, is the guy at the top free climbing (no rope)?

The one lead climbing, is the person lower down the rope belaying for them?

Rock School opens

Yes, the guy at the top in the red shirt is free climbing.

He should be belaying, looks more like he is hanging on for dear life.  :worried:

if the rope below him is not stuck down it may look neater if it were coiled to the right of his feet and a couple of dots of silver paint on the rope between him and the climber would represent the quick-draws (that clip the rope to the rock)

It does look great, need to see if I've got space on my layout for some climbers

I'm not sure if it has been mentioned before but the Dapol MJA twin-set is a contender for best N gauge carriage/wagon of the year in the Hornby Magazine annual survey.
