An 'O' gauge man now!! Will have to follow this saga, I mean thread!!
That's easy Oops Honey I thought it was OO explains why I got it cheap, this O scale stuff dose look good and solid now though doesn't it? I'll just have to look around for some other bargains in this Scale, I won't need my glasses as often that will be a good thing.
I hear many of the guy's at work saying thier wife doesn't understand them - my problem is my wife does understand me far too well.
Don't think that excuse would wash - you could always send it back
I could try "its a bit like when you washed yor sweater and it shrank, I dipped it in dettol and it swelled, i'll need to keep it to see it will shrink back down after a few years or wear" - maybe not 1st sentence would apply
Say its not yours, your just looking after it for a friend. . . . .. . .
Welcome to the dark side, there,s no going back now- haa haa haa HAA HAA ( in maniacle voice ).
You, Chris, Steve, Kimbo etc have an awful lot to answer for, a dyed in the wool 4 miller coaxed to the darkside, have you all no shame
Looking forward to it, but must work on Viccy Road first
When it arrives and you open the box just say 'ooo look dear a strange gift has arrived ... and there's no return address' ... er... nope ... forget it ... your doomed ... you will have to tread the path of the demon mall and visit the temples of queen shoosanbags ... good luck
I 'fessed up in advance - so sitting outside on a dank, wet, dreek day, doing pennance
Grovelling mode on - taking the boss to the flicks this afternoon.
My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2 - here I come Whoopee

Toto, I woke up this morning and the world felt
that little bit bigger
Watch your back for the O gauge missionary team, they get you when you least expect it
Got one I'll sell you
Nuts, read the wrong O scale and enlarged the kit by 158%, not 176% for UK O scale
That will give problems for the inspection pit as I can't even fit it on to A3 (just makes it with a bit of brute force and tickling).
On both the Weigh bridge and inspection pit (not tried a new download of the warehouse), the pdf's can loaded into photoshop, gimp and paintshop pro, best to load it a page at a time, rescale by the required amount (read do it 176% this time).
Create a page approx 20mm undersize all round so that printing errors can be avoided.
For an A4 printout
I created a 190 x 277 @ 300 dpi (gives a 10mm border allround)
For an A3 printout
I created a 297 x 420 @ 300 dpi
I then copied images from the rescalled page over to the new image as separate layers, this allowed me to move them arround to optimise the positions, then print out as normal.
Does not increasing the scale, and loading it into photoshop, gimp and paintshop pro, contradict the rule :
'You can only use the parts that come with the kit as they were meant to be used'.
oh this is going to be fun....and the reply from Paul is.............
