Hi Gary, Nice kit you have there, I started back in 4mm but quickly converted to 7mm after a conversation with Jim McGowen about three years ago. I'm not dissing 4mm in any way but it is just too small for me to work with these days.
cheers for now York Paul

Well done Gary.  That's a great purchase on your way to building an O gauge layout.
Enjoy :thumbsup:
Mark

Top stuff Gary
I knew you wouldn’t be happy with just the Lima project items
Your now a confirmed rubber Gauger that HO—OO—O, yep Seems rubbery to me :giggle::giggle::giggle:

All nice stuff good way to buy as well those built and part built will be good candidates for some aggressive ageing

Thanks all. :thumbs:

The Lima models are a project in the waiting. I think I can turn the pigs ears into pigs purses, not exactly silk purses, but an improvement regardless. Too much to worry about right now as I have a few projects on the go, two for Rosehill, and the permanent layout. Not to mention that my back has been playing up again.... :evil:

Cheers, Gary.

3 Nellies to be built then

Perhaps you ought to all build them together as a Platform 1 project?

Oh, an 0-4-0-4-0-4-0 !! Three boilers, three chimneys, three domes, but I think one cab will suffice ! :mutley2::mutley2:

Cheers, Gary.

That's the weight of these O gauge models - just look at the state of Chris, you'll just have to send them to me and take the risk of the bad back :avatar:

Be strong Gary even if your back isn’t at the moment.

Gary it looks like Paul is offering to build the Nagging Nellie is that what he means by send it over. :giggle:

Well Chris, if Paul wants to have a go at Toto's first, where he can make a few mistakes, then his model so that he can perfect the mistakes, then mine may be a mockery of mishaps ! :mutley2::mutley2:

Cheers, Gary.

Who said I was sending it back - with Aus post delays you'd never know it wasn't returning home :mutley2:

I've actually just received from Amazon a Weller 40W soldering iron, with a few spare 6mm bits - as per Jim McG's recommendation, the tools are all aligning, maybe time to put 50p in the meter to warm them up :avatar:

Must be serious I've even started to read the instructions - that or man flu is on its way and i'm delirious.

Nellie 1 may soon be breaking out of the box

Paul

I would not be using the 6mm chisel tip that comes with it. Not the same control of the solder with it. It also obscures the view of some of the smaller pieces when working on them. They would be fine for sweating the larger pieces together.

Max size of tip on average work would be about a 3 mm chisel tip. Ample as long as the power of the iron is good enough. 40 watt for an everyday iron and possibly a 25 watt for the really tiny pieces that don't take as much heating up. I'd stick with the 40 watt as a rule though.

I've still to try the torch as used by Rob.:avatar:

I'm not so sure Ron ?? Toto is talking chisels and for some reason he has left out the hammer... :mutley2::mutley2:

It will be some time before I get going on my kit, have too much going on at the moment. It will be good to read Toto and Paul's thread once they get started on their kits. That way I can be recommended certain ways on completing the model. :thumbup:

Cheers, Gary.
