" 1/43 is a truly odd scale selection "

Hi T.G.V.  :slow:

1:43.5  is almost always abbreviated to just  1:43  :old dude:

But  1:43.5  works out to exactly  7mm per foot ...
... so is actually quite convenient when measuring your stuff.  :brill:

Something I found out by accident, is that 'Lego'(TM) minifigures are  1:43 scale ...

... if you take 6' as being the height of a figure, they are exactly that !  :P

1:43 has always been a very popular scale for diecasts as well ...

... 'Corgi' and 'Dinky' and 'Hornby' etc. etc. to name just a few.

There are plenty of excellent oDd finds on eBay in 1:43 scale as well.  :cool:

AWESOME work Alwin !  :thumb:

Great to see you have found a way of Posting your modelling ...

... without giving the game away, on the 'whole deal'.  :P

We can't wait 12 bloomin' months to see your modelling work ...  :time:

... that diorama contest sounds good ...

... but HEY ! we don't want it to create a whole load of modelling RECLUSES !  ;)

The transformer wire is called 'Enamelled Copper Wire' ...

... & is just a thin insulation, so that more wire can be wound onto the transformer.

It is kinda like polyurethane varnish, or similar.  L:

The wire used, is kinda just pretty soft normal copper, under the coating.  :thumb:

GREAT hooks !  :pimp:
