Durbar plating

Post by Dave Noble » Tue Feb 13, 2018 9:41 am

I need some 5" gauge Durbar plating for a current project. Does anyone know where I can get any?

I tried the Tamiya stuff, nicely etched, but far too coarse.

If there is no current supplier, I can get some etched on 1/2mm nickel silver at £25 for a piece 300 x 150mm (plus carriage) if anyone else is interested.

As no-one seemed able to help, I've had some etched in stainless. It's soft soldered to the signal platform frame, and using phosphoric acid flux it tinned without any trouble at all. The bolt heads are 10BA.
