It closed last weekend - the new bidder outbid me by $0.25. He got it for $1.25.

And it'll show up on the next Antiques Roadshow worth $500... and the bidder will say "he got it off an online auction in a tight bid with another guy and beat him out by a quarter for $1.25...

I do have a paper kit of a German BR52 around, was thinking of photocopying it down to 1/32.

No Pete, I already have enough train stuff piling up. This baby is all you. Reminds me, I have to look into renting a storage unit for the next year to thin the hoard.

Sounds like paper models to me. I started doing paper models in the early 70s. Found this really neat toy store in Monterey, CA that sold paper models of german castles. they were printed on this great heavy paper, not a glossy finish, so the slightly porous material absorbed some of the white glue, making a very strong bond. I recently found some of them a few years ago. Just as much fun now as they were 30 yrs ago. A tip should you get it. Don't use sissors. I cut everything on a cutting board, using a metal straightedge, and went through many #11 X-acto blades...┬*

Keep us posted Pete, since I'm not gonna bid against you.┬* Heck, I got rolling stock #7 from you...┬* An old MTH UP caboose was delivered yesterday, making #8.┬* How many of you guys can still count all your train cars on two hands?

You are welcome to bid against me - I'm not that bothered whether I actually end up with a 1925 Centenary Scale Model Sheet of a Sleeper and the Experiment. [img]/DesktopModules/NTForums/themes/mls/emoticons/doze.gif[/img]

I asked the question, and got back this answer:
┬*┬*┬* Can you tell me (a) whether this item is paper or thin card and (b) what size ?┬*
┬*┬*┬* It is card stock 15"x6.75" and is meant to be assembled.

My guess is that it is the old UK O scale: 1:43 or 7mm:ft.┬* If the sleeper side is

As Terry also lives in our Country maybe we should take note┬* and remember him for those occasions when we drop those tiny , but important,┬* screws etc. that we can never find.┬* [img]/DesktopModules/NTForums/themes/mls/emoticons/laugh.gif[/img]

It's also easier to read once you already know what it says.
