Spin and stupidity in equal measure.

It's a module. It connects to other modules. If you can't distinguish
the difference between the two, consult your beloved dictionary. More

It's irrelevant whether it was posted yesterday or ten years ago. You
continually claim that your detractors comments have no authority
without a web page to back them up, so I obliged by showing some of my
work. More desperate spin from you, particularly as you claimed the URL
didn't work. More lies.

Does it? How?

Really? Shows how little you know about UK OO layouts. It also shows
that you lied yet again when you claimed I haven't built turnouts. More
desperate spin from you...
> Get a reality check, wood does not weather to a brown colour expert.
I know your powers of observation are terribly limited, but try to go
outside and look around. Wood weathers to any number of colours, from
black to white, and anything in between. Are you referring to the brown
painted/stained stained structures, or the sleepers? I've lost count of
the number of brown wooden buildings I've seen or photographed in Japan.
Many Japanese minor railways use untreated wooden sleepers, which start
off a rich brown colour. You want to argue otherwise, show your proof.
More desperate spin from you...
> Still not one picture of a weathered locomotive expert
Irrelevant. But when it's convenient for me, I'll post some. And you
know I will, just to spite you. Better prepare some more spin...
When are you going to post some photos of *your* weathered locos? And by
weathered, I don't mean the ones covered in dust and bird droppings.

Shamed? Who, by you? LOL! Get your hand off it, Flynn. You're not an
influence on my modelling.
> A couple of months experience, yep, your an expert,
If I'm capable of doing all this in a couple of months, then I certainly
am an expert. Thanks for the compliment.

Yes, that and a couple of roller gauges I machined up on the lathe. They
worked really well, too. You should try it sometime.
> Yet you don't know how to do a realistic colour for weathered wood,
As noted above, the colour is correct for the prototypes being modelled.
If you reckon you can prove otherwise, be my guest. Flights to Japan
from Sydney are cheap at the moment. That ought to appeal to you.

Quite a few more than two, and they all work fine with their sloppy

Why would there be scratched paint? They're gun-blued. There's no paint
to scratch off. That's the way experts do it. Experts also know that the
wheel doesn't run on the check or wing rail. If yours do, you need to
work on them some more.

First doll's house I've ever seen with an inspection pit and
workbenches. Fitter's house, more like. But if you'd like some advice on
building doll-houses, ask me. My niece loves the one I built for her.
Why not show us some photos of your structures? Let's see how
well-detailed and finished yours are. After all, you can't post opinions
without a web-page to back them up, can you?

My prototype is flat. Is that too difficult a concept for you to grasp?
> or a dunny on a locomotive tender.
Yes, my expertly-scratchbuilt doghouse. Do show us some photo of the
locos you've re-worked to be more accurate representaions of their
prototypes. I'm sure that you have many excellent examples - not!
