    Does any one know if such a thing is available in S7? Exactoscale do a FS version but I can't see a S7 version. My other option is to use the "Slater's" rivet and solder method for construction with fake chairs.

    Marc,

    Most folk I know just cut them in half, it's very easy to hide the join. I do the same with the Slab and bracket chairs if they do not hold the wing rails tight enough.

    Why can't you use the Exactoscale version? Surely they are 7mm to a foot scale, all you're doing by laying to S7 instead of F7 is putting them an extra 1mm (or 1.5mm) further apart?
    Or have I missed something blindlingly obvious?

    Bridge chairs carry a single rail and are independent of standard:

    Do you mean check rail chairs which do vary between S7 and non-scale standards?

    Yes, the A switch chairs are suitable for a S7 rendition of an A5 turnout:
