Website off line?

Well its online but having some domain name problems. Looks like our provider for some reason didn't secondary the Ultima domains and the main server for them has gone kerplop.

Should all be back in a bit - just need to investigate why it didn't have a working secondary.

Order placed with Decal interest.  Will the BR and departmental decals be done as well as the GWR ones?

I've never made a coach or truck before but this looks so cute I might have a go, especially as I've got the Dapol club Class 22 and milk tanks on order, would it be wrong to have it on the back?

For the tanks I believe it would be within period for the class 22 probably wrong, except in departmental usage.  Put a kettle on them ;)

Test etch artwork for the brake mostly done. Still have the trussing and V hangars to attend to. Having peered at photographs a lot it seems either 1399 always had less handrails than 1397 or the SVR missed some when restoring it. Hard to tell which.

It would be useful if anyone has or knows of images of the guard end of 1397. 1399 has a strange mix of ends - one with decorative work and steps, the other a later plain metal style. I know the non guard end of 1397 and 1399 match but I'm wary of assuming that for the other end in case it was a repair or an oddity.

and as a PS - internet and name problems not entirely sorted. I'm hoping it will get soon but if it all disappears again don't panic (leave the running around screaming to me 8))


Latest on this is apparently that the ISP hosting the name server had the cabinet power go, including it seems taking out the machine PSU.

We used to have a milk break at school but it was for the U.10's not the O.13's because we had to change schools when we were 11. Eventually Margaret Thatcher decided it was a bad thing and stopped it.

Ok we will probably vanish from the net until Monday at some point. The name server saga continues having gone through couriers failing to delivery power supplies (alleging nobody present - at a site with 24hr security staff on the door !), delivering it late and then finding the replacement PSU appears faulty.

Contingency plans in place but won't take effect until Monday.

In the mean time I'll have a quiet afternoon cheering for Italy  :beers:

 :sorrysign: Been away from the forum for a few days, so I'm a bit late, but I've just ordered (with an interest in decals).

Noticed this thread the other day and just registered on the forums so I could post.

I think I'd be interested in getting one of these, but don't have any experience with etched brass. Before I pre-order one, I'd just like to ask; would the overlays be fairly easy to attach for a beginner? I assume I'd have to shape the side overlays to fit the curve below the window line.

I'm trying to make it as easy as possible - no solder bits and to make the bending as simple as possible. You are correct that the ends and sides need curving a little before gluing them on. You may also be able to find someone who will build them to order - I don't know.

I like easy  :claphappy:

Thinking about the chassis, what is the difference in length between the Farish 4 wheel carriage and the brake vans (SR perhaps)? It looks like the price of the 4 wheelers has gone through the roof on "that" auction site.
