I just received an email from Sierra West that the J.E. Morton's Brass and Iron Foundry is ready to order. It really looks super cool, and I know this is said about each of his kits, but I think it is one of his best so far.
Not pushing sales here, just sending a notification. But I just placed an order.
Hey guy's kinda new in here and I did not wish to begin a thread just to find more info on a specific item I am looking for but it's not so easy to find. So I have been looking around for a forum with good model makers in the ranks and this one certainly fits the bill and figured this might be the place to ask. I am looking for a set of drawings and plans for the Sheepscot "Cats Head Pier" Kit. I found a wonderful thread in here with some great building progress photographs from a Richard Baron who built one of these a few years ago in O scale.. I have tried to contact him through the message options available but no luck yet. Do any of you know Richard or how to contact him and/or do any of you modelers have a set of these plans you'd be willing to make a copy of for me and let me pay you to send them along? I hope it's OK to ask about that in here I don't want to violate any rules about making deals...? We know anyone who has this kit obviously has a set of them but I would think most all of us keep the better drawings in a file for reference after we build a kit also. Thanks in advance Randy
Latest project .... A reflector with light for my narrow-gauge locomotives. The diameter of the reflector is 4 mm. The LED is 0.5 x 1 mm! The reflector is made out of aluminum from oven trays. I took a nut of the right diameter and slowly pushed the aluminum with the rounded top of the hat from a ballpoint pen. Then I rough cut the edges and filed it to shape with a needle file. I then drilled a 0.8 mm hole in the center of the reflector. I glued the LED to the backside of the reflector with epoxy. The LED is a bit too white, so it'll get a drop of Tamiya transparent orange. Then I'll take Microscale Crystal Clear and fill the reflector so it gets a lens.
I TRIED TO REGISTER BUT IM TOO STUPID I GUESS . COMPUTERS AND MODEL RR ARE NEW TO ME I MODEL IN HO AND NEED TO KNOW SOME TECHS ON WEIGHTING LOGS ON KADEE DISCONNECTS. NO PLACE TO HIDE WEIGHTS BUT INSIDE THE LOGS.
