Yes Sol - I clicked on the icon.  None of the pdf icons under the DEMU heading are "live" on my computer. :???::???:  I just get the normal cursor arrow when I go to them.  There's another pdf icon on the next heading down (Model Railway Journal) but that's live.

If I click on the DEMU site "here" link, I go to one of those strange pages offering all sorts of web searches with nothing to do with where you thought you were going.

Very strange indeed !!! :???::???::???::???::???:

One of the mysteries then concerning electrons & computers!
Instead of opening it "live", can you right click & save it?

I can't even "pick up" the icon Sol.  It's just the cursor moving over it - no reaction whatsoever !!!!

Hi Peter

I'll have a look next time I am home. What browser are you using?

For now - right click this and save as http://jsmithwright.demonweb.co.uk/other/articles/Resources/update%2041%20370.pdf

HTH

Jim

There must be an incompatibility with the browser you are using, Peter and the "mouseover" function at the particular positions on the page.

As for the DEMU link, it is wrong:cry:  The link should be demu.org.uk and not demu.co.uk as written behind the "here" link, so that is not your computer!!

Just tried it in Firefox as IE8 is OK. I have the same problem in Firefox as Petermac - the MRJ link is OK but the others - no go.

Thanks Geoff

When did DEMU change their address? I'll change it next time. I dont have anything to do with DEMU anymore so perhaps they mentioned it on their forum or in Update?

Cheers

Jim

Work has started on the s/hand Timberline wooden kit of a square water tank, ( which isn't square !!) after reading the intructions, and then reading them again and again, I managed to work out how to start, first off was to stain all the panels, very lightly, to avoid warping, which they still did, then the job of strengthening all the sides, I had to clamp them all and wait 24 hours for the glue to dry.




After the glue had dried it was a case of building the shed !! with square corners !!, for which I used rubber bands, next job was the Frost box, which is the central support, this had to be faced on all sides with a hand made door at the bottom on one side, after that I have started on the main support legs




You can just make out some of the pencil markings for the next supports to be added, everything has to be cut, from lenths of strip wood supplied, after the supports have been added, it's making two ladders !!

Any comments welcome

Looks like it's not just a case of running some Mek-Pak down the joint Alan !! :roll::roll:

She looks good (is a water tank a "she" ? :hmm)

Ron, Mike

It is a old USA wooden kit, I brought three at the time, all for under £10.00, and they will all fit into one area on the layout, the other two being a Sand box and a freight yard building, they are hard work, but will give the effect that I am looking at for the layout, that being different than all the brick buildings around them.

DD,

An axe might have been useful in the early days...........:hmmstill might use it thinking about it,

Geoff and Peter

It's not really a kit at all, except for the side panels, the rest has to be cut to size, and Peter don't I wish the wood glue could dry as quick as Met-pak :roll:

More work carried out last night on the main supports and the ladder, all of which has to be cut to size, although the plans do show all the sizes that each piece has to be cut too, but these are not always right !! but this isn't really a problem, as all wooden structures bend over the years, so if it's not correct, it will all add the weathering and aging side of the model. Center bracing is next but the kit doesn't have enough of the correct wood, so I am having to wait until the end to see what I have left over !

It's the weathering of the wood that interest's me next, you can see the area's that I have already stained, and now that it is far more stable, I will be able to add more layers of stain, but it's how to weather the wood after, one thought is taking some sandpaper to it, but I would like a effect of peeling off in the sun over the years !



Again Guys any comments good or bad.

 so I guess you give it a very light coat of paint and then take the sandpaper to it :hmm
 It might be possible to do it in two coats of paint e.g. handrails on diesel locos - painted white or yellow, initially, then grey paint or graphite pencil over the top which looks like bare metal even though it's applied afterwards.
In other words two different colours to simulate either bare timber and paint, or old paint and older paint.
