Hello everyone as promised a while ago I am starting a workbench thread as I do have quite a large selection of kits of rolling stock ,cars, lorries,farm machinery,buildings,etc.

 As I think we all seem to have and as its rather cold outside at the moment have decided to put together a bench that can be used in the house where its much warmer.:thumbs 



this first photo shows the componant parts for the bench

 



these two pics are of the bench after I put it together but the corners still need strengthening as they are only held together with small pannel pins



bench is now in place in the corner of our dinning room (very understanding good lady who is very supportive of my hobby)she must be as I drag her all over the country to show railways etc

thanks for looking

Geff

Hi

First couple of little projects are in OO not my usual Ngauge they are the freebies from railway modeller but as my father in law models 00 I put them together for him









these really went together very well also before I built them I took a copy and sized them to Ngauge for future use

finnaly my next project is the cardboard kit for some semi detached houses they are a lot more complicated than the other two kits



if people are interested I will post further pics of progress as and when

Bye for now

Geff

Looking good, Geff.  She must be understanding, being dragged about like that.  Maybe you should let her ride in the front?  :lol:

I like the kits.  :thumbs

Hello again a bit more upto date this time at last I have made a start on my quite large colection of ngauge society kits begining with kit No1 the 21t steel hopper fortunatly for me this is a quite straitforward kit to put together so progress is fairly quick.



this shows the componant parts



Two of the kits partly assembled and tacked with glue to some sprue to help with painting these are my first atempt and seem to go together quite well one thing im not sure of though is wether I should use some thin plasticard on the chassis to hide the existing holes above the wheels having looked on the ngauge web site the picture there looks a if this is what they have done

All the best

Geoff

Hi guys hope every one is ok just a quick update in the last issue of the ngauge mag there was an offer for members during last year the society celabrated their 45th year and at roadshows they had a small stand with the oportunerty for members to make a model of a midland van this was kindly sponsored by a kit supplier and there is a suplus of kits these have been offered to the members free of charge just £1. 50 to cover postage max of three per person pics to follow 











think that you will agree that these make up into a nice looking van

Nice looking little wagons Geoff. I saw the article in the NGS Mag and I'm hoping there might still be some available at the NGS AGM on 1st June.

with any luck you should be alright when I contacted Mr Baverstock re stocks left he said that there were plenty left but as it said in the artical in the mag they are not available from the shop it may be worth while droping him an email just to see if they are going to be available at the show and thanks for looking at my humble efforts how things going with your layout?

Thanks for the heads-up Geoff. I'll drop him an e-mail.

Not much progress on my layout recently as, apart from gardening duties, I've been concentrating on getting my model of Market Havering station ready for the NGS scratch building competition. Not sure if it is of a sufficiently high standard but if I don't give it a go I'll never know. Just finishing off some of the fine detailing at the moment. Turning roof finials from bamboo tooth-picks in a Dremel collet is certainly testing my shaking hands not to mention the eye-sight. :brickwall

I've never thought of using the Dremel as a lathe - a good 'tip' thanks, Trevor.

Hi Marty,

I just use a cheap set of the diamond surface files. The square and triangular section ones are good for forming grooves and the flat surfaced ones are fine for general shaping and tapering.

Good luck with that and dont forget to put some pics on your thread as unfortunately I wont be able to go to the agm this year so will no be able to see your station in the flesh so to speak good luck at the show I think that if its up to your usual standard there should be some silver comeing your way:doublethumb

Hi guys a bit of a catch up society freebies finnished



gone together very well for me anyway after doing these kits decided to make a couple of jigs to make life easier when assembling box vans open wagons etc so these jigs make it so much better in keeping things square





next project is a twin pack of 12 ton box vans from the society once again

thanks for looking

Geoff

Hi Peter yes I am a skilled turner by trade but after over 30 years there is not much that I can not do with lumps of metal now this is how we keep the wolf from the door just as we all no things are not what they used to be .




so if its made of metal I can do something with it the problems start when it is made of plastic/wood/or card etc etc there will be a couple of more shots of the jigs to follow something wrong with them when I uploaded then so will try again later

That jig looks absolutely brilliant Geoff so I'm going to be really cheeky and ask how much you would charge to make one for N Gauge. :pedal
