    Importing UK product to Canada

    Importing UK product to Canada

    Yes, Canada post will take a small cut if HST is applied, but its still at least 50 bucks cheaper than if UPS gets your shipping to Canada, those guys

    Chromebook?

    Thanks all but I bought it to try out JMRI and to run an Android game only. While I didn't know about JMRI, I was told I could run android games on it

  • Barn build

    Nine years ago I made this sketch set (https://www.nscale.net/forums/downlo...?do=file&id=36), but never got around to building it. I know why I didn't, I knew the doors were gonna be tricky. Thats an understatement (they were a real bear, and took me a full week to do just the doors). Lower main doors are the sliding type with an upper door rail and bottom retainer, while the upper loft doors are inward swinging utilizing duct tape hinges.

    Eight doors total meant 40 pieces of .015 x .030 trim that always seemed to find the floor instead of my work table. Persevereance won though, and the completed project looks pretty good.

    Footprint is 2 3/4 by 4, and if you have a farm on your layout with no barn, this may work for you. I don't have a layout anymore (downsized to a condo) so this barn is for sale. PM me if interested.
