You can always delete the text, in the edit box, before posting..
I find the editor goes away with the fairies, losing my text, sometimes.. When I next come to the thread, there it is sitting waiting for me.. I then just delete the text, as I have invariably re-posted, or it is no longer relevant.
I've noticed the same problem, and yes, it can be irritating when you can't seem to delete something - I often find the easiest is just to write something else over the top of it - even just "post deleted, nothing to see here..." and then post that; as long as you post SOMETHING then the software seems happy. But it does seem to be a bit of a glitch that once you've started composing a post, there appears to be nothing you can do to get rid of it.....
Ah, well Madman, since you ask. I recently bought some unpainted figures off ebygum. Purported to be G scale they arrived this morning from Europe and not only are they too tiny for G scale but I doubt they would look right in 0 gauge.
I was going to post a photograph showing the comparison with other G scale figures but for some strange reason I couldn't download the picture so the post seemed superfluous; a bit like this one really!
