not the best website to navigate.



Rivets, white: 1⅛ inch diam, 3 inch spacing between centres
Product code: 2mm-9101    Home > Transfers > 2mm British

      
Make:       Railtec
Gauge:       2mm / N
Type:       Waterslide
Cost:       6.90
Qty in stock:       1
   
Qty in basket:       


Themes:   Scenery
Eras:   Big Four :: Early Emblem :: BR Late Crest :: BR Pre-TOPS :: BR Blue TOPS :: Sectorisation :: Privatisation

    2mm scale 1⅛" diam rivets (~0.2mm) with 3" (~0.5mm) spacing between rivet centres, so " (~0.3mm) gap between the rivets themselves. These are raised with the correct profile/relief, just like the real things.
    1744mm total length.
    Individual horizontal strips on clear carrier film.
    Rivets are white in colour, allowing the sheet to be coloured/sprayed to suit any job.
    These are waterslide transfers and the strips can be cut to the desired length.

Funny you should mention the navigation problems.

I was on it earlier, and, well there's no other way to say it, it's an absolute PIG to navigate once you have items in your basket.

Sorry @Railtec Transfers but it's awful on a PC or laptop, but...

...I had a look on my mobile, and it's like a different website!

It's perfectly good on my mobile, so I ordered it through that.


I've just noticed Railtec have answered.

So guys, have a look at your site on someone elses PC, and then on someone elses phone. It's impossible to decipher the postage on the PC website.

Anyway, ordered placed.

been buying from Steve for many years, and I've never had problems with the site.

I search for what I want, add to cart, check out and a couple of days later it arrives.

have ordered on home pc, laptop pc, and before retiring err work pc, never a problem.

Curious!

On my laptop (Win10, FireFox) it looks like a stripped down, code only site. On the phone (Samsung S7) it looks great.

 :hmmm:

@Railwaygun what is your PC/Web browser?

That is odd, looks perfect on my computer. And reminded me that I need some DB Cargo decals for a 66, now need to think if I need anything else to split the postage!

On plastic or brass sheet you can emboss rivets with this tool

To hopefully put the sub-thread to bed:

- The site was developed specifically with Windows, Mac and Android in mind, in different browsers and on different devices. Besides leveraging the various OSs and devices I have here, there's also an online tool which snapshots page(s) of your choice on multiple permutations of OS, browser and device. Last time I checked (albeit several months ago) it all looked good, and no code has changed since that time. The only thing which has changed is slightly newer versions of browser, but afaik there's been no major code changes in the popular browsers which should break anything.

- @emjaybee if the site looks ok in one session and not in another, then this would suggest something unique to your device, browsing session and/or connection device through which you access the internet. There has been no code change for quite some time now so the fact that one minute you see what you expect and the next you do not, suggests something at the client side. Without wishing to cause undue alarm, it may not be a bad idea to run a virus check on the device where you are seeing sporadic behaviour, as malicious code often tampers with the packets delivered from server to client and vice-versa.

The attached is what everyone should hopefully see at check-out.

@Railtec Transfers , the screenshot you have attached is what I saw on my phone when I placed the order, and what I saw on my laptop when I went back later to try to get a screenshot of the original problem.

I have no answers.

My laptop is an unmodified Win10 with Firefox, and it constantly runs Norton antivirus.

All seems okay, my placed order has apparently been despatched already, so much kudos there.

That's N gauge for you  :D
Like I say, other diameters / spacings can be made if people know what they want.
