Well done and what an excellent set of photo's and commentary - if you could complete the set as you progress its a thread that would serve the forum well by being "pinned" by Doug and placed on permanent display as a "how to" in the forum to encourage others!

Nice to see you doing so well with all those new tools too :)

As to those scary small holes, its good to use a taper reamer on them and it saves using all those small drills - if U need I can arrange a set from about 0.3mm upwards for you when you visit later this month (but remind me by email before U come as I don't normally have them on display)

Richard, perhaps you can re-iteate the wire type here?

*** Hi John/Paul

its an ultra-fine Kynar coated wire - solid core and silver plated for easy soldering. Very very thin insulation so the overall wire diameter is far finer than decoder wire but it contains equivalent copper.

Superb for tight DCC installation work as well as such things as Pauls signals - its big advantage is that while actually very easy to use it stays where U put it without flopping verywhere like decoder wire - especially vauable where space or layout/position within the loco or model is important.

The kynar insulation loves superglue too, so its easily tacked in place. I often use it for simulating power, conduit or lubrication lines on loco models as well as other things. The insulation likes permanent marker pen ink too so if a visible wire is not black and should be it can soon be coloured that way :)

It can be expensive to buy by the reel but I sell it in a pack of several colours for $A6
