Thats great, once you have details let me know and i'll make some plates up for you.

I'm not aware of STW giving boiler wash plates. i've never seen any on the 4" and as a 2" builder we def didnt get any with the kits.

still, it gives me something to do making them though! Smile

I keep looking at 4" and wanting one. i've got some more done on the 2" to try and finish it over the next few months so it can be steamed for this season.

Hi Brian,

yes I'm currently working on the artwork for your plates. My motherboard on my PC decided to cook so i'm in the middle of building a new PC just now and hope to have it running by the end of the week. I'll then get on with the artwork for all the orders I have.

I am sorry for the delay.

Also i'd just like to say, once I have done the artwork and you are happy i'll be asking customers for payment up front. I did this for most of the plates I sent out apart from one set for someone. (not one of the regular posters on here) I have not yet recieved payment or heard from them so i'll not be doing that again as it's wasting my time and brass in the long run if I dont get payment.

Thanks to all who have ordered plates from me. i'll be in touch as soon as my PC is running again.

Thanks.
Jo

Jo when you are back up and running and are in a quite period (as if lol) please get in touch and I'll be happy to commission my name plates. I am a long way from finishing the build so happy to be at the bottom of the list and there is no hurry. Will be looking for two sets of 4" name plates one saying ex-mayor and other with my engine name (when we finally agree it) and boiler wash out plate.

Many thanks

Rob.

Hi Jo

A few moons ago I inquired into name plates etc for my showman. Have you done any design or an idea of cost?

Engine name is going to be "Crystal"

Hello everyone,

wooo I finally have my new PC up and running.. I decided to get howl new system as my home PC was a bit slow and I wanted something that could handle my 3D artwork too! so after allot of money spent and a few nights building and setting it up i'm back on the rails so to speak.. I'll be knocking up artwork for people over the next week or two and sending it out for proofing and for any amendments needed.

Lynn- yes I have your order noted down on the list of etchings to do.. there are a fair few people waiting and again I'm sorry for not getting round to doing any artwork sooner but it'll be worth the wait I hope once you have the plates.

hope everyone is well. speak soon.

Jo

I'm currently working on some artwork for names plates and will be contacting the people for the size they require. there is still a long lead time on these just now but i'm getting there! I hope to be clearing some off the list over the next few weeks.

thanks to all that have placed orders with me it's nice to see them on the engines. Smile

Hi,

Depends on what sort of plates your after larger plates take a little longer.

Let me know via pm what u want and I can sort something out. Should be about two- three weeks but if they are urgent I can prob squeeze then in for you sooner.

Hi everyone,

Can I please get all the people who want plates to E mail my personal mail address, it seems this PM system is really bad and things are not getting sent from me to you (either that or people are not replying back to me Smile)

Lynnr - I got your message and sent you back one not sure if you got it? lynnr could you mail me though so i have your address to send the revisions too.

baggycanoe - I sent you some artwork but have not heard back about it as yet but can you E mail me on the above if you wish to go ahead with your plates.

Tufty - I got your mail can you send me an E mail so i can mail you your artwork.

JerryT - Sent over artwork but not heard back says you've not been on here since last year. can you mail me on the above address please if you still want your plates. other plates will take your slot as it's been a few weeks now.

Andy2 - I sent over artwork for your plate but not heard back can you please E mail me on the above so I can send it over to you.

chrisnchrisRoberts - sent you a PM about your plates. can you please E mail me on the above so I can send over artwork for you and discuss your Loco plates.
