I suspect they know by now, just a question of how determined they are to get around the issue. It took quite some time for Channel 4/E4/More 4 Catch Up to get rid of the advert freeze issue that effected a certain percentage of viewers for example.
Not quite Duke but as Bachmann aren't likely to tool him anyway Palmerston will soonish be a repaintable option.
Something else I'm curious about: Does S scale (1:64) have a following in the UK? It's not super popular in the US, but it has an insanely loyal following, but it does have a stronger presence than TT.
Speaking of TT, I really wish that it would've caught on, because if it did, I'd probably be modelling in that instead of HO.
Well Prince and Princess are to be tooled for green and maroon livery for about £130 it seems, more updates on the Small England project will come as and when.
I remember seeing a S scale layout at Wells about four years ago, really threw me off at I had no idea about the existence of 1/64! The saddle tank (a Hunslet kit one I think) did look top quality and I can see the advantage over fiddly 4mm but like 31/2 gauge with G, G3 and 5inch gauge doing respectfully it's something that doesn't especially need to exist anymore except for historical sake. With TT this is even more true as 2, 3.5 and 4mm are fractionally either side of it. Basically if you like being a contrarian/lone wolf it offers you the high likelyhood that whatever you choose to model will be unique and 3D printing has opened up its market protential a little in recent years but it can never really gain too much of a base when N, HO and OO have so much more kit and RTR support and is where most people start with modelling. Guessing you know about 5.5 as well but I do recall seeing a Dolgoch example in an exhibition cabinet, twas very cute! www.5andahalf.info/gallery_ms.php Beside those examples I can't say if I've seen much of those scales in either mag articles or close up but know they will never die out in Britain either.
Falcon if there's something you're hankering to order from Shapeways and you can't use another server to get in I might be able to order whatever it is if you can PayPal me the amount back, PM if you do.
Sleeper Agent Well... I'm not planning on ordering anything from Shapeways… not yet at least and also it looks like they've finally fixed the bug that was messing things up for IE users since the pages are viewable again.
And a RTR 009 Small England? Looks like I now have better replacements for the old Langley Models kits I "was" originally going to use for my 009 Duke and Bertram ^^

Any word on if either of the two models will be DCC ready? I’m really excited for the George England locos! The day before they were announced, i was thinking about how neat it would have been if they were produced in 009 and was excited when they were announced by KATO
No pics of the beading on the headstock sides to compare annoyingly but as they're doing the Wight stock I assume that batch at least will match up with the Tenmille kits. Anyway here's a S1 and S2 recolouring quckie.
OO gauge started with HO gauge track to save costs. This practice stuck. The only difference would be the UK OO stock would look larger on a US HO layout & the US HO stock woild look smaller on the UK OO layout. A lot of people wouldn't even notice.
The irony of the Bachmann & Hornby lines was,if you put them on the others track, they'd work EXACTLY the same.

Peco track is either 00 or H0. They have altered the sleeper spacing regarding whether you model in H0 (3.5mm scale) or 00 (4mm scale) but you could run stock on either as the gauge is the same. That stems back years when manufacturers in the UK didn't want to try and make smaller motors to fit into locos so they just upped the scale by half a mill but still run on the same track. H0 is correct for the 16.5mm track it runs on. EM and P4 developed for those modelling in 4mm scale that wanted more accurate track in terms of gauge and sleeper spacing

dtchapman1: You know, I've said in the past that 'Thunderbirds are Go' can be such a tease when it comes to it's overarching episodes, but this times, they have given us more then what we could have asked for.
Feb 15, 2020 9:23:17 GMT
dtchapman1: I can't wait for the next episode.
Feb 15, 2020 9:23:53 GMT
OJ: I've seen the epsiode myself and what an ending to part one. Can't wait for it to conclude. From what I hear I think the show is endng.
Feb 15, 2020 15:50:13 GMT
OJ: I would like to have seeen another series but looks like the show will go out with a bang.
Feb 15, 2020 15:50:30 GMT
Madness: 'Thunderbirds Are Go' is coming to an end after next Saturday's episode. I saw 'The Long Reach' myself and I loved it, and what a shocker to the end of part one. I hope part two is a superb finale to the series.
