    I need a good quality water gauge for my G3 model of the Liverpool Lion. Does anyone know who may supply these in either G3 or G1. I've looked at the one that Walsall Model Industries have on their website and it's a bit crude for my tastes. When I built my G3 Manning Wardle, I used a very good quality 7mm version from the chap who has now ceased to trade. Hobby Horse?

    So far as I am aware Hobbyhorse only supplied 7mm parts? If so, then I suspect Lauri Griffin will have something suitable, but he has a huge range to search through!

    I've been in contact with Geoff Nicholls and he has a 3D printed one that he is going to send to me. I'm going to Reading on Saturday and I shall seek out LG as I need some small drain cocks that will also be fitted to the backhead.

    Yes, Mike, - Reading.

    It's the annual pre-Christmas trade show organised by the Guildford 0 Gauge Group. It's that small stuff, predominantly 7mm scale - you know, that stuff that's mentioned on your signature line....
