Hi Barny, just a great sight and a pleasure to look at the models. How much mm is the gauge?

Done a few more shots in Day light - colours seem a bit more natural but colder

Gauge is 16.5 mm (standard HO /00 gauge) was toying with the idea of using On3 track gauge 3/4in making it a true 18in gauge in 1/24th  but obtaining On3 stuff over here  in the UK is a bit hit and mis and pricey so Im sticking with 16.5 a bit "Micky Mouse " I know but cost and availability is against me (makes 15in gauge) I have found some mines using this gauge.

I think it makes perfect sense. when I read about fellows basically starting their own scales just to make something work, I often wonder "why?".

with models this nice, I seriously doubt any visitors to "the Pike" will call you out on the gauge discrepancy. in the event someone makes an unsavory comment, give him 2 brownie points and show him the door.
