The enginehouse foundation is taking shape.

The red-brick Tamiya wall sections are all done.
The grey Italeri walls are 'getting there'...
...I have had to MEK one piece at a time on these; otherwise WARPTASTIC !



Boris is thinkin; where's the rails for the floor ?

&

Wolfgang is checking out his new critter workshop...
...he always has a can of gas on hand, for a thirsty loco !

Si - what are you sticking the walls down onto ?. If plastic, beware using MEK on the one side only !.

Hi Michael.

Don't worry ol' boy...
...I totaly screwed up a scratchbuilt HO logging-car model, from my youth...
...NEVER AGAIN !

Not as hard as sticking things to Teflon(TM) though !!




The only 'known' material which Geckos can't climb !  :us:

Dave the postman :cool: didn't come on Friday.
So nothing from the Royal Mail for me this weekend. :f:

However.

I did get a delivery from U.P.S
How do I know ? (what ?).
It had one of their stickers on the box.

U.P.S deliveries here at Mysterious Moose Mountain...
...are, well; a mystery !!

I've NEVER seen the delivery person ? / persons ? / guy ? / gal ? / robot ? / alien ??
I've NEVER heard the van ? / truck ? / speedboat ? / helicopter ? / U.F.O ??

Stuff from U.P.S, just arrives; somehow. ???

That's why they're know around these parts as...

... UNITED PARCEL STEALTH ! :Salute:

Must be a Steven Segal type ex-Navy Seal perhaps ?
I'll see 'em one day I guess.
Or will I ??!!

- - - - - - -

UNITED PARCEL STEALTH brought the plastic-moulding, for refurbishing my old D.I.Y train-throttle, I built as a teen.

I have to say, I'm very pleased with this item.
For what it is; it was quite expensive.
But when I clocked it in the C.P.C catalogue...
...I knew I could transform my clunky '80s D.I.Y project into a ROLLS ROYCE !

What price style & comfort ?

Mmmm...



Curvey !!

:pimp:

Si.

Hello Si,

Looks more like a set of bathroom scales for those who don't want to how their weight.

Cheers,           Michael

Hi Michael.

I'm not too worried about this myself (ignorance is bliss ?)...
...but then, I'm not spending the rest of my summer in a BEER TENT ! :P
Good luck seeing your scales, past your 'bun in the oven', come autumn !

- - - - - - -

Measurement, of the Volts & Amps type, did come to mind though.
(might help me not to burn-out all the M.M.M motors !) :w:

My D.I.Y train-throttles 'main-board' never got put in a decent case.
It was screwed to the bottom of my old layout...
...& run from a vintage '60s Triang A.C transformer, on the floor ! :shocked:

So, it's time for a case to house the A.C transformer & board, as well as a new handset.

- - - - - - -

I found this nice Volts/Amps meter on eBay for a measely £2.38p inc. P&P !!

I don't like making anything more complex than it has to be.
But this could be a nice little feature for my 'Rolls Royce'...
...& it's 'cheap as chips' !!
(I like cheap chips) :pop:



" Micro-motor boiler-pressure looks OK chief ! " :thumb:



" The engines 'can'-nay take it Captain ! ...

Bit of a busy weekend I'm afraid (non train related :f:).
But I did manage to spend some time checking out the new O.K.W 'Blob Unit' enclosure !

Scarry movie that, 'The Blob'...
...pants (_!_) special-effects; but Steve McQueen was pretty :cool: !

Found some cool push-buttons & a reversing-switch for the throttle handset...
...& got that sucker marked out !
Progress ! :bg: :slow:

Bloody curvey-cases...
...rocked 'n' rolled all over the bench...
...& was quite tricky to mark out, using the M.M.M draughting dept. set-square !

But with N.A.S.A style precision & too much coffee; it's LIFT-OFF Houston !! :java::cb:



:Crazy: Curve ball !

Si.
