Hi there, Finn,

Welcome to Mad Modders.   :mmr: 

Where are you and what are your background and experience? 

Do you have lots of workshop space? 

Do you have good access to sources of equipment and raw material?
Best regards,

Pete W.

And where is this Finn from? :lol:

And more importantly where are you now? It might have huge impact on what tools and materials you can get.

Wellocome!

hello Dear

Many thanks for warm welcome . Sorry for late reply . I spent many weeks in hospital  . Finn is just a nickname .I  live in Saraburi , 120 km north of Bangkok . I have zero backroung of model engineering , by the way I  have experience  in  minicnc for wood  milling but don' t have metal tool .
I made some small shipmodel  . I bought  steam engine plan from stuartmodels and  sent to make pattern then casting , so I know little about casting process . Last few months I  started to search  information of  steam loco . Big budget spent for my micro steamloco bookshelf some are uncle Kozo ( ( almost all ) ,G1MRA book 1-4 , ARMIG , DEE , The Project , Bryan Wilson , Perter Jones ,Martin Evan  , guage 1, 5,  3.5 , 7.5 plan mainly from Lilian , blowfly manual , Clishay , some books about boilermaking, track making , of course some was from free download.
Metal casting is my serious project for making engine part , trying hard to have small furnance for this mission .
Near my home has some steelshop and  technical vocation , brass and copper tube can find near China town . I am happy to join with this site

Hi Finn, if you get a chance, some pictures of your ship models would be great to see. Glad you're well now -- looking forward to your casting and loco building projects!  :beer:
