Thread: Darjeeling Saddle Tank 0-4-0 New series starting in ME 4378
14/06/2011 01:35:57

I am about to start building the 'B' Class, (my first loco that is bigger than than 16mm/ft) one thing I have not seen yet are the overall dimensions. (I have not had chance to see it in the flesh yet)
 
So can someone tell me :-
 
The overall Length (Buffer to Buffer) (I think it is around 36")
The overall Width
The overall Height
The Weight
 
and finally the scale ... I think it is about 1-3/4" tot the foot (1:7) is this correct?
 
I have the drawing supplied by the DHRS and Various photo's I took when I was in India several years ago.
 
I have ordered the drawings from Blackgates.

Thread: Model Engineer Reader's Survey

I have noticed there is no way to indicate the fact that you are a "Digital Only" or Paper subscriber. The answers could be different for both options.
 
Also there seems to be no questions about the Digital Edition. i.e Quality of printed pages/drawings.

Thread: Living with the digital copies

Quote <<< As digital editions they are not geared towards being printed >>>
 
Bull***t
 
Are we then expected to move our PC's and Monitors into the workshop whenever we want to build anything using the drawings???
 
I Subscribe to other publications digitally and their print-outs are as good as the printed copy ..... This is all we are asking for. (Yes it would be nice to print multiple pages at a time ... but lets sort out the quality first)

Thread: Can not view Digital Issues with 64 bit IE
26/05/2011 20:27:42
They are not PDF, David said they were adobe Flash.
 
I have the 64-Bit Flash IE plug in from Adobe and it still does not work. (I downloaded the latest version today just to make sure)
 
The Flash plug-in works OK with video's etc on otther sites...
 
So I suspect that the "Digital Editions" has issues with IE9 and 64 bit. (Can anyone else confirm this?)

Hiya,
 
I can not seem to view the Digital Issues (Model Engineer) with the 64 bit version of Internet_Explorer 9 under Windows 7 (64 bit).
 
The box opens, but then stays blank.
 
If I try and access through the 32-bit version of IE9, (still in Win-7 64 bit),everything seems to be OK.
 
Are you aware of the issue and when will you be fixing it?
(I normally use the 64 bit version)
 
Dave
