To improve things needs chains etc and probably new brake gear. Any suggestions where I can get the necessary bits please.
Also got the D13 Twin Timber Kit.

Nice model of a relatively common prototype rarely modelled. I have started one in Gauge 3 but its a long term project.
I've no objection at all to using it.
Is it possible to shrink the photo to fit on the page?
When is the modelers day?
Struggling to find any info about it.
But probably not looking in the right place...
Do you mean the Kenilworth or Kidderminster modellers day. Kenilworth in July is mentioned in events http://www.lnwrs.org.uk/Events/index.php but awaiting more details. Presume Kidderminster is same as last year - at start of August - again awaiting more details.
Any more photos welcome, from all and sundry (will have the full set one day), Added some from Simon Fountain recently and one from Philip Millard. Can say they are popular and get a lot of views.
I am on about the Modellors day being held at Kenilworth on the 2nd July. Simon, thank you for posting the link, I will send you more information on this quickly now I think things are confirmed, I will also put something up on here as well.
I use Microsoft Office ( I think!) to shrink and reduce the size of photos, Simon is the best guy to ask regarding photos and programmes to use though.
How did you get the wood effect on top of the wagon?
I use GIMP which is a free photo editor software. Reasonably stable with enough features. Can scale image - either experiment with size of find a photo on site that matches size you want, for most browsers "right click and select view photo info" it will show scale in pixels as well as file size. Change dpi to 72. Can crop if want. Finally instead of save, use 'export as' from File menu, choose new name with qualifier of jpg. This allows reduce size and reduce quality. Exit view with 'discard changes' so that your original is unchanged.
GIMP available from here https://www.gimp.org/downloads/
Disclaimer .... Of course it just works for me and it is a personal - not society - suggestion. I take no responsibility etc, etc.
