So I understand from your reply about the Confusion is that you are now going SMALL SCALE?

And I am now as I type this waiting for the postie to bring me my silicone mould material to make accurate bricks for my Gn15 layout!!!!

My wife still doesn't get it. My kids have never understood me either. Modelling - it's like scrapbooking, you do it in a quiet space at your own pace because no-one else understands what it is all about unless it is another modeller or scrapbooker. No wonder I call it SMB (Secret Men's Business).  Grin

OK Nick,

I admit it you got me "hook, line & sinker"

I read the whole thread, although I did have to go and lie in a dark room a couple of times. If I have summarised the 15 pages correctly then;-

I can only get these bricks if I have a German mother in-law, after the divorce and remarriage if I have any money left I need to change it in to Euros and travel to Germany to purchase them. Once bought I need to find some HO 6x1 for the mortar lines, unfortunately not available in UK but I might pick some up in the States? All other sources of 1/35 bricks are rubbish, although if I attend Euro Militaire I might find a mythical supplier at half the price of the German bricks  but just as good.

Have I got this right so far?

I feel an almost overwhelming debt of gratitude to you for helping me out this way  Grin

Anyway your sheds are still great, and the cement mixer would actually look good abandoned down the side amongst the overgrown grass.


Of to lie down again.

Gordon ,

   Nobody said modelling in this scale was easy , if you want that , 0n30 is the scale for you . That is why there are only a few 1/35th scale railway modellers about at the moment . We operate on the fringes of decent society where few normal people dare to go .

   Are you normal ? Or are you one of the few ? The choice is yours .

Think I'll leave it to my current wife answer that!

However as a clue I have ordered up a few 1/35 bricks, as I will need somewhere to put my one 1/35 model

Hmm ... seems to give me a musical interlude ...

The elastic retreat rings the close of the play as the last wave uncovers
the newfangled way.
But your new shoes are worn at the heels and
your suntan does rapidly peel and
your wise men don't know how it feels to be thick as a brick.
