Title: RAF vehicles, crew & buildings in N
Post by: Railwaygun on February 02, 2018, 02:30:56 PM
A query from a member

I am just about to embark on my first N gauge layout.   Being ex RAF the layout would not be complete without  a small non flying RAF Unit.   Fortunately I was able to purchase on e bay at considerable cost a mint condition Metcalfe RAF WWII kit which they produced for Corgi some years ago.   However, am having problems locating N gauge military personnel - any ideas.
Secondly I note that Noch have produced some N gauge footballers, quite like the idea of a village green match on the layout. No idea whatsoever as to what size the pitch should be.   Wonder if any of the N Gauge boffins would have any idea.
Regards
Alan Thomas


Suggestions so far:

A search in the Military subgroup. For ď figuresĒ produces a number of hits for
Military figures - many suitable for mods with a bit of RAF Blue!

Gramodels do a RAF   Control tower, and I have some spare Metcalfe airfield kits if he is interested

Oxford diecast do several vehicles

NBSA008 Motorbike & Sidecar RAF Blue
And a bus, scarab

Be careful with the Pendraken range I have found them to be very poor scale wise and the castings aren't always wonderful.

Ask which are the newest designs as these are more likely to scale, buildings and boats are purposely under scale around 1:180-200 so they take up less room on wargame table.

I was very disappointed with the vehicles I got from them, most went back for refund, the ones I kept took a lot of work to make them look good.

That is why I made the point of asking for new items, I was told at a exhibition that buildings etc are not to the same scale.

These will be N 1:148

There may also be some other variations of these at a later date.

Gramodels have kits in stock soon

Dear Nicholas

Some time ago The friend who did the etch for me stopped!  Try as I might I couldn't get a response from him as to why.  However at Stevenage he put another 10 etches in my hand.  All I need to do now is to rebuild and mould the resin parts.

So How many do you want?

It would help if we knew what period was being modelled, landrovers would be ok from the 1950s  even though there is one in the Dambusters film it's not correct. Make sure you don't get the wrong model too early though...

I saw 'The Dambusters' in the cinema on Thursday 17 May.  It was being shown across the country.  It was uncut.

This was the first time I have seen the film on the big screen and it was absolutely terrific.

I understand it is being re-released on DVD next month and that will be uncut as well.

Well getting back on subject,
Today if you wish go from Coningsby across to Scampton to visit the grave and you phone MT now for a vehicle. You are actually phoning Hertz or Avis or who ever has the contract at the time. Except for specialist vehicles, when you need a car be it for an officer trip or section transport. You'll get issued with something like a nissan micra in a civi colour unmarked and civilian plates.

but it will be cheap, and that's what matters to the politicians, after all they all travel in nissan micras don't they ? errrrrrrrrr ?

think how much money they could save if they did the same thing with all vehicles and equipment ....

Kinda like what they've done with the VC10 replacement, the Voyager. A fleet of fourteen A330 MRTT Voyagers are available to the RAF - 8 are MOD registered, 6 are civilian registered, all are owned by AirTanker Ltd. (http://www.airtanker.co.uk/ (http://www.airtanker.co.uk/)) and leased to the RAF.

I think the thread may be going a shade off topic, from the grave of the dog who must not be named
to castigating politicians (tho Boris uses or used a bike ).  Not sure what an LSW is , sounds like
a railway grouping involving GWR, LMS and SR. I digress, now where can I hire  a cheap MiG 31 ?

I don't think many of  us could get into a set of 1950s RAF uniforms let alone, me getting into my 1970s number 2  uniform.. 
Note the RAF uniforms changed in 1973 from the WW2 battle dress,  to the early version of today's uniforms.. Though there were still a few still with the old ww2 battle dress uniforms when I joined up in late 1976, they were changed when your old uniform wore out not on-mass.

A standard football pitch minimum size is 100 yards by 50yards that's 300ft by 150ff. So in N gauge 6oomm by 300mm.

I saw an 'OO gauge' Queen Mary trailer advertised  by Oxford and wrote suggesting they shrink it to 'N'. A reply said that they would put it on the list of 'possibles'. Maybe if everyone wrote they might actually do it. :)

if only I could have the room to have a Vulcan turning off the runway with a couple of mk.9s behind, a Land rover to pick up the brake chute, and a tug with tow-bar ready to drag down to the dispersal.

control truck by the runway ........

sorry no room for trains  :-[ >:D

many would argue that it's the other way around  :)

why do snowdrops walk around in pairs ?

one can read, the other can write

how do dog handlers get on ?

the dog does both  :smiley-laughing:

Yes, you are right, I got them the wrong way round, the brain on a chain is definitely the dog!
