Re: Loft Find

you have to be prepared to post it as you are limiting your market by saying collection only. 1st I would advertise it on here, give it a week then on e-bay as a job lot, reserve I would say of £75. with 6 lightweight teams as extras and 1 heavyweight it has to be worth a ton

Re: Bagshot Stadium

stanley tools are black and yellow, ideal if the ground is scouse-esque as the scousers bought a fair few stanley tools

Re: LANGTON ROAD

great model, as I have said before with modelmaking it is the vibe of the model that is the most important, a model should be telling you its life story by looking at it. the execution of the build doesnt need to be perfect. you have captured the feeling and vibe 150%. well done

Re: Stadium and District

looks amazing but your crush barriers need some work, now you are working in 4mm to the foot and from memory leaning on leitch barriers at rugby park each barrier was approx 8' wide by 4' high so in 4mm that translates to 32mm by 16mm. my suggestion would be to use brass rod about 2mm diameter and s...

Re: handmade stadium crowd barriers?

if the barriers are of the traditional leitch design then you are looking at either plastrut plastic angle and rod or using brass sections soldered together. make a jig and use a good soldering iron with plenty of flux. for the modern square section barriers i would go for plastrut square section gl...

Re: Subbuteo table building- Design advice?

as a guy that builds model railways for a hobby I always build a frame using 2" by 1" softwood, glued and screwed together, i generally dont like 18mm mdf as it is too heavy usually go for 9 or 12mm. as mdf can warp a bit I find a frame built into 2 foot square sections does a good job, one of my la...
