Hi all,

Just received my NGS order today and the little stove r is brilliant, cant say enough about how good this is. Also got the shark kit and a horsebox kit, having never done any kit building before i hope i can do it without stuffing it up. Any suggestions re kit building ive got open ears
how good is their service delivery very quick

I found the Shark to be a lovely little kit to build.  One thing I didn't bother to do was to cut the peco chassis in half.

Here is a thread on mine:- http://www.ngaugeforum.co.uk/SMFN/index.php?topic=2669.0

I'd love to know where to get the decals that H used in his picture.

There was an article in an old NGS journal giving tips on constructing the horse box. Its raining heavily so I may have time to find it.
Some days its just not worth gnawing through the straps.

The Mark1 Horsebox is a lovely kit. There is one crawly horror with it. The chassis is plastic from bits glued together. You *must* get it absolutely square in all dimensions to get the horsebox to run properly. Spend time on that, have a flat surface to work on and a set square to check it all.

Hi

I cheated with mine and used W Irons from the 2mm SA along with their N Gauge wheels. I also converted it into this

thanks heaps i think i might take these to work and do them there where ive got no little distractors. luckily i kept all of my tools from my apprentice days. Do i just use normal glue like i use when building the plastic buildings or is there something speciual needed
