I can't get 1m in my machine, but I know someone who could.....
Phill, 1000, or 1011. Hopefully I will be keeping this one

Assuming there are no schoolboy errors :) the etch is good to go. beams, spare bolster and a CSB, it should be a straight replacement for the kit item.

Hi Cynric
Amazing, :thumbs: Thank God you up-scaled to 1/32nd, You and Simon are doing more for the Diesel modeller in this scale than G1MRA (Hence the need for our own group). I remember when I did D6331 I did not like Fred`s design for the bogie or the compensation, So I cut away all the etch that was visible and went for a fixed bogie, as Roger has allready stated this runs perfect on both Worcester rd and Rob Mabbetts layout. Now you have produced these etches I take it they will be available to purchase ? As they are the same wheel base as the Class 29, I fancy to sets for the 1x class 29 7 1x class 21 that I am currently doing.
The brick work is also excellent, looks as good as Gorden Gravitts brickwork he makes out of modelling clay.
I agree with other comment about the 16t mineral wagon, the colours look superb just needs a bit of texture, blistering, dents, scrapes, peeling paint however with so many mineral wagons and as many weathering variations the world is almost your oyster !!

I also like the accessories you are making, are these going to be available to purchase?
You will shortly have enogh items to start a little business !!! making money from your hobby cannot be a bad thing or can it ?

Cheers
for now

what is the cosmetic bogie mounting on the 29? is it the same as the D63? yes it will be available :) same for the tool holders. I have plenty of ideas for bits and pieces :cool:

Very nice design solution to enable use of the technology.

Any colour as long as it is blue... no doubt some of that persuasion will provide you with details of which company painted their pallets in blue in the 1960s.

Wow :thumbs: Really inspiring work - the design of the build is as impressive as the results!

1/32? Hmmmmm... No! Must remain strong :confused:

Thanks chaps. I shall be doing some in 1/35 and if thin ply proves acceptable then in 7mm as well. it took me less that two minutes to assemble and trim them, so doing 20 or 30 wouldn't be too much of a chore. The payoff with wood is the distressing effects. The next thing is some packing crates.....

I am not sure when pallets were first used in this country - someone will pop up with the answer.....

However, packing cases, now there is something to get excited over. Or to be more precise, those cases of commodities which got stored in railway warehouses. Cadbury (other chocolate is available), margarine (sunflower is available) and others which can be seen in railway official photographs.

Cynric, what chance that you have the technology to create, in 7mm, the "branding" which was carried on those wooden crates and cases?

Don't forget the good old thin plywood tea chests with the sculpured metal corners, can't remember the size though. I think they were about a 2' cube

It depends on the size :) ! assume that it was applied like a cowboy branding a horse? can you point me in the direction of any examples ( i have most of the usual GWR books)
