I’ve found the HobbyZone products to be excellent for organising my modelling desk. They do a range of drawers, shelves, paint racks etc. and the beauty of them all is that they are magnetic and clip together to form a rigid structure.
While others have covered unit construction, I thought I’d do a quick video on their wee paint stand (SM1). Just a quick look at what it is and how it goes together…a simple and easy job! You can watch the video below…
If you’re using a 6V dc motor in your Lima or Hornby ringfield motor conversion, and you’re using DC control or DCC without CV5 functionality, you’ll need to consider a diode voltage dropper to protect the motor from over-voltage and current.
I’ve always made my own, but I know that not everyone has the skills, confidence or time to do that too, so I’ve come up with a couple of wee kits to help out.
There’s a pre-assembled diode voltage dropper kit which includes all of the core components soldered together for immediate use, plus a ‘components only’ kit with everything you need to quickly knock one up yourself.
We’re happy to announce that, following a number of requests, a limited run of our 3D-printed road/rail landrover track access ramps available to purchase.
The ramps were originally designed these to compliment our own small fleet of Oxford Diecast road/rail models, one of which was motorised as featured on our YouTube channel.
The four ramps that come with the vehicle are not sufficient for a prototypical scene, so these compatible replacements are an ideal extra. They’re available in high-vis yellow and black – just like the real thing!
