Hi Alan

I dont know the answer TBH. Nothing you see in the picture you linked to is in any way difficult. The track is as supplied, the fishplates from exactoscale, the platforms simply Peco with lines scribed on them and the troughs are available from me! I cant see how any of it can be above the abilities of anyone.

Cheers

Jim

I think because many of us use the Peco track offerings using their rail joiners riveted fishplates are not something that can be applied practically you could possibly do something on the outside of the rail but the inside of the rail would probably cause fouling problems.

I suppose is is one of the advantages of using EM P4 or the 00 finescale track or perhaps not actually using peco rail joiners may allow you to do it.

cheers Brian

Hi All

As part of my modelling roads I need Iron work. Seems that no 2 are the same but I have produced a variety of Brummy specific ones based on Photographs at the actual location. Its pushing the camera a bit but they are legible!

Cheers

Jim

Hi Alan

I wasn't planning on selling them as they are Birmingham specific but if people want some I am sure I can work something out. Would people want a sheet of all of them or individual ones?

Cheers

Jim

A sheet of those shown for variation, I'd say. Burmingham specific they may be, but that will not be noticed when installed on a layout. Excellent work, Jim. :thumbs:thumbs

Yes I would like a complete sheet, as they would last me forever, do you make them yourself ?

If you do make them, could you explain it all, as I am sure it's not only me that would be interested.

Cheers

Interest here as well. I echo the comments that the design might be city-specific but short of having the streetware rivet-counters around with their microscopes who would notice?

I assume you have your own little photo etch set up you use?

Apparently although i am not sure it is not that difficult to set up a photo etch set up at home is that correct or have i misread a few things?

Hi All

If there's enough demand I can run off extra sheets of the manhole covers - cost will be £10 a sheet. A sheet consists of 15 drains, 43 small covers (3 designs), 15 round covers, 22 square covers (small), 26 gas covers (small), 15 meduim sized covers (3 designs) and 20 large covers (4 designs).

I draw all the artwork myself and then get a Scottish company (PPD - http://www.ppdltd.com/) to produce the etches for me.

Along with my manhole covers I have also etched some of the brick arches I will need for current projects. The first is for the platform walls and the results can be seen below.

Cheers

Jim

LOL - You were already at the top Alan!

Another project that had stalled until I got the arches sorted out was the lower floor of the old Staff building.  Happily its now ready for paint. Before anyone asks - yes that door does need a padlock!




Cheers

Jim

Hi Jim,
Those brick arch etches look fantastic!
Do you have any plans to make those available for sale?
Could be on to a winner there, they look much finer than the Wills/ Ratio offerings.

Hi Frank

Again I wasnt planning to but i do have spares - I dont have them to hand at the moment but I will give you dimensions when I get home. I actually did 3 slightly different widths to allow for variation in my aperature sizes.

Cheers

Jim
