Title: Journal 5/19
Post by: exmouthcraig on September 26, 2019, 08:13:48 PM
Well I managed to get down to my post box at 7pm a full 14hrs after leaving my front door!! It was a shock to see it with a bunch of magazines (horse & hound and Farmers Weekly) so as my good lady is outside working till 9.30pm trying to earn us some money I'm sat at my dining table eating my birthday dinner alone, doing something my mum would kill me for.....reading whilst eating at the table!!

Well @NeMo (https://www.ngaugeforum.co.uk/SMFN/index.php?action=profile;u=945) I must say it's another cracking edition with some very interesting articles in there. But the best bit......

A mere 48 words into the editorial you thank THE TEAM you work with and admit although it's your name it's a massive team effort. And I think that's wonderfully refreshing in a dog eat dog world of self promotion and selfishness.

So I look forward to enjoying the journal but congratulate the whole NGS for this well informed insight into our hobby

 :thankyousign:

Thank you @exmouthcraig (https://www.ngaugeforum.co.uk/SMFN/index.php?action=profile;u=5099) for those very kind words.

I've been really blessed with some great articles to include, and it's good to know that people enjoy reading them. If you're thinking of submitting something, please do get in touch.

Hopefully the next issue will also include a BR blue supplement that will go down well with the members, and perhaps jog a few memories for those who remember that era.

Cheers, NeMo

My copy arrived today at lunchtime, so guess what I read whilst have yesterdays leftovers? I had a quick skim through and read a couple of articles, (have to save some for tomorrows lunch  ;)) and the thing that struck me was the 'readability' - it was so pleasant to read, which is something I never really thought about with the previous editor, (although I did enjoy reading my copies!). Well done @NeMo (https://www.ngaugeforum.co.uk/SMFN/index.php?action=profile;u=945)  (and team  :)).

Yet to get mine, but agree with exmouth's comments having seen the first - refreshing to have the editor, editing. Previously between 25 and 50% of the content was consistently written by the former 'editor' (so not really an 'editor'...).

I hope this positive attitude helps diversify further the number of contributors in time.

Cheers,
Alan

And don't forget, @Dr Al (https://www.ngaugeforum.co.uk/SMFN/index.php?action=profile;u=263) that you are more than welcome to send in something about any of your marvellous creations! Even if you don't fancy writing a whole article, a couple photos with appropriate captions would be more than welcome.

Same goes for anyone else on here. Please do get in touch.

All going to plan I should have some rare ďme timeĒ tomorrow (SHMBO our with Rainbow Guides, Gremlin at Grandparents), so I really should crack on with my next submission....

Have started reading this issue of the journal, loving it. The article on the German layout (forgive me, forget the name) is fascinating. I wouldnít normally be interested as itís not a U.K. model, but the choice of track, use of a helix and automation mean I am hooked.

Congratulations to @NeMo (https://www.ngaugeforum.co.uk/SMFN/index.php?action=profile;u=945) and all involved...

P.S: The accompanying news letter is also very refreshing...the chairmanís report even includes the phrase ďall good newsĒ  :D

But seriously @NeMo (https://www.ngaugeforum.co.uk/SMFN/index.php?action=profile;u=945)  and all the good folks who put the Journal together well done it's been a really good read with a nice mix!

I will make the same offer that I made to the previous 'editor' (which was totally ignored) - have a look at my workbench thread when you have a moment ( https://www.ngaugeforum.co.uk/SMFN/index.php?topic=27336.0 (https://www.ngaugeforum.co.uk/SMFN/index.php?topic=27336.0) and https://www.flickr.com/photos/68426125@N07/ (https://www.flickr.com/photos/68426125@N07/)), and if there's anything of interest, let me know and we can look to pull something together.

In fairness to Grahame, there's 43 pages of your workbench thread for him/me to go through! Much easier to simply say, "I like this particular model, what do you think?"

Still, I like the 2-6-4t Fowler and would happily have that featured somewhere in the Journal.

In fairness to Grahame, there's 43 pages of your workbench thread for him/me to go through!

Sure, though there was less than half that back then. Truth is, previous 'editor' simply wasn't remotely interested in anything from me.

Still, I like the 2-6-4t Fowler and would happily have that featured somewhere in the Journal.

That one isn't quite finished yet, but we could do something.

At a glance, there are:
LNER K3 3D print build
LNER K1 3D print build
WD 2-10-0 build
Fowler 2-6-4T kitbuild/superdetail
LNER V1, V3 tanks 3D print build
Conversion A1 Tornado backdate to A1 production (and I have another to do)
Class 31 renumber
UM B12 superdetail
UM 2F Superdetail
BHE LMS Patriot rebuild
Langley Standard 4MT kit builds/superdetail x3
LMS Stanier 2-6-0 build
LNER J52 build
SR Merchant Navy 1948 loco exchanges conversion
LNER A4 streamlined valve gear enhancement
GCR L1 2-6-4 tank build
LMS 4P Farish model update
Peco Jub repaint
GW 47xx rebuild
LNER A3 subtle detail and weathering
LNER D49 build x2 (1 unfinished)
Class 86 backdate to original condition (unfinished)
LMS Ivatt 4MT build (unfinished)

Also, I have older ones, probably not on here
LNER W1 4-6-4 build (rebuilt design)
LNER J50 build
UM D20 superdetail
LNER N2 kitbuild
UM J39 superdetail
LMS Garratt superdetail kitbuild
LMS Duchess 1948 loco exchanges conversion
Peco 2251 repaint

Future plans I won't reveal, but they include several large interesting prototypes, and have also got plenty on loco rebuilds, maintenance and repair as I've done so much of this.

The editor needs to look from the publishability point of view, particularly photos wise - the photos on the WB thread are basically all that I have of the progress of the builds, some aren't that great (photoshop?) so this may limit what you feel is usable. Throwing together words is less onerous as a lot of that exists on the WB descriptions, so would need pulling together into a single document.

Cheers,
Alan

Hello @Dr Al (https://www.ngaugeforum.co.uk/SMFN/index.php?action=profile;u=263),

Not for me to comment on Grahame's editorial decisions!

But so far as your projects go, ones that appeal to me include:


Frankly, anything about building LNER locomotives and/or updating Union Mills models of LNER and LMS prototypes would be extremely welcome.

Cheers, NeMo

2 great articles ticked boxes for me  in this journal, the soldering how to guide from Steve and Stuarts loco shed with a DCC turntable  from DCC interface.  Photos on front cover & centre spread are call outs as well.
Well done to the editor and all contributors.

Post by: Dr Al on September 27, 2019, 12:17:12 PM
  • Peco Jubilee repaint -- a popular locomotive widely available secondhand, and a repaint of the common black version into either LMS red or BR green would surely be on many people's mind.

I've done a few, though these aren't well documented - there are basically just finished pictures. One is still for sale too...

  • GCR L1 2-6-4 tank build -- we simply don't get enough LNER projects submitted compared with either GWR, generic transition era, or modern image layouts.

L1/L3 build starts on page 14 of the WB thread.

Most of my builds are LNER/LMS, so some to choose from in list above.

  • Langley Standard 4MT kit builds/superdetail -- having seen discussions here about whitemetal kits being obsolete, and then seeing your models, this would surely prompt some modellers to look at whitemetal with a more open mind.

Fairly well documented on 4 or 5 builds over many years.

  • Class 86 backdate to original condition -- a personal bias showing through here, but with the Dapol 86s back on sale again, this might be a timely article for those modelling the pre-80s WCML.

This isn't finished yet, so a bit to go before it's an option.

Cheers,
Alan

I have said what I have said, @Dr Al (https://www.ngaugeforum.co.uk/SMFN/index.php?action=profile;u=263)!

Some suggestions have been made. Now up to you what you'd like to write and send off to me via the usual channels. Otherwise this gets like when the wife says she'd like to go out for dinner but then doesn't actually tell me whether she wants Indian, Chinese, a steak or whatever... just becomes circular. So just tell me what YOU would like to write about most.

So just tell me what YOU would like to write about most.

I have no problem with doing something for any of the completed models, and no strong preference.

However, I have very limited time to consider devoting to this (likely only 1/2 hours at lunch time at work), so I think you do need to cherry pick what you want specifically, whether it be a single article or series (again, I have no preference, but if you wanted LNER as you say, there could be a series), and then look at the material available as I said before, as to whether there's enough (particularly photos) of truly publishable standard. I simply don't want to dedicate time to something that will ultimately be rejected for that (perfectly reasonable) reason, so that input is absolutely essential to go any further.

Other aspects also need consideration - e.g. the material is already in the public domain here, so some may grumble, and moreover, I myself may wish to use it again on say my own dedicated website. I'm not sure how that kind of thing fits in with NGS.

I'm happy to discuss by PM to pull together our thoughts and decide on what's suitable.

Cheers,
Alan

@Dr Al (https://www.ngaugeforum.co.uk/SMFN/index.php?action=profile;u=263),

As I said some messages back, I really like the Fowler tank engine. Completed model or not seems unimportant. The pictures look fine as they are, but what we need for publishing will be the raw images (as they are direct from the camera) because the publisher prefers to do the editing rather than have the article writer do it.

Beyond that Dr Al, I don't want to be prescriptive. I know time is limiting for many people here, so it's entirely up to you whether you send 3-4 photos for a gallery piece, a single model with a paragraph or two explaining some of the details, or a longer article with photos showing a succession of important steps. Entirely up to you!

We can indeed discuss via email or PM, as you prefer. But did want others to know that I'm not about telling people what to write -- and don't want to start doing that here! -- and more about welcoming what people feel they want to write.

Cheers, NeMo

Keeping things on thread that may be of interest to all:

The pictures look fine as they are, but what we need for publishing will be the raw images (as they are direct from the camera) because the publisher prefers to do the editing rather than have the article writer do it.

Ok, thanks. Many of the photos are as off the camera, except they've been cropped to remove the detritus of the workbench. I presume original but cropped is ok?

We can indeed discuss via email or PM, as you prefer. But did want others to know that I'm not about telling people what to write -- and don't want to start doing that here! -- and more about welcoming what people feel they want to write.

Absolutely. I just feel that guidance is useful to submit something that is close to what you need in terms of standards; rather than making more work for everyone by submitting things that are wide of the mark.

PM me on it if you so wish. I'm happy to privately discuss a couple of forthcoming projects, that I won't post publicly yet, to see how they might fit in also.

Cheers,
Alan

Iíve managed to skim read some of the Journal today and would like to thank Nemo for taking over the role and hitting the ground running in fantastic style.

Iíd also like to thank him for taking the time to read my idea, giving me the confidence to put pen to paper and agreeing to publish my waffle. Having previously held voluntary positions (not modelling related), I can appreciate just how much time they can take away from work/home/family life. I canít even begin to imagine just how much time must be taken up by reading through all the submissions, deciding what is going into the latest issue of the Journal and then editing it all into a format suitable for A5 publication.

While I note that Nemo rightly acknowledges and thanks those who have been helping him, I think that he also deserves thanks for taking on what must be a monumental task.

Landed on my doormat this morning, and another fine effort. Thank you @NeMo (https://www.ngaugeforum.co.uk/SMFN/index.php?action=profile;u=945)! Very useful and interesting article on soldering etched kits, also a long, detailed article on Rheinbrucke, a German-based layout which got a bit technical for my little grey cells. And no less than two articles by Ben Ando. Also the Chairman's report shows the Society is back on a very positive footing.

Well done, all.

Can only echo the above posts, a really good magazine with some interesting articles - I found the soldering one particularly useful.

Also flattered to have my own layout featured on the centre page spread  :bounce:

Re. the A4 or A5 debate - I'm not particularly fussed either way however I did see a copy of the N Gauge Now magazine recently which is A4 and thought the photos were very poor quality. I know nothing about publishing but maybe photos which are blown up to A4 size will limit the editors in what they can use??
Title: Re: Journal 5/19
Post by: njee20 on September 30, 2019, 04:39:42 PM
The image quality in N Gauge Now was discussed at length, the physical size of the magazine needn't impact this, unless you're getting in very low quality images, in which case I'd simply suggest they're not suitable for publication. I've never seen any such problems in any A4 magazine.

I'm broadly indifferent to the size. I did enjoy this Journal, Steven's soldering article is excellent, despite having read much of it here!

well, mine finally arrived on Monday, passing customs at the VIC/NSW border. This and the last mag just seem cleaner and easier to read, whilst I appreciated all Graham's work over the last few years this is refreshing. Well done @NeMo (https://www.ngaugeforum.co.uk/SMFN/index.php?action=profile;u=945)

Yes, I'll second that.  :thumbsup:

The articles are nicely balanced too. I'm particularly impressed with that Kato helix layout!

Thank you for your kind words, gentlemen; I really appreciate it.

We're putting the finishing touches to 6/19 now, and hopefully people will enjoy the mix of articles in there, too.

Cheers, NeMo

Yes that was my favourite as well.

As I said before, I donít model German railways but this was such a good article with the vast majority being transferable to any layout that I throughly enjoyed it.

Indeed. That could be a British, American, Japanese, Spanish  or anything up top.

A well written article showing the details.

One of the best in recent years, methinks.  :thumbsup:
