    Cynric, I hate to be the one to tell you this, but what you have got there looks nothing like what's on the lid of the box behind. You have obviously put the bricks together in the wrong order and seem to have not used enough blue ones either:))

    Hi Cynric,

    How easy might it be to post a summary of all changes made to the Western body / bogies?

    I shall be looking for some wheels for a 52 at the Reading Show... which supplier do you recommend?

    regards, Graham

    Do you want S7?
     
  9. Dog Star

    Sort of, probably, Yes.

    We run S7 here and intend that most of the motive power can be converted to narrower B2B for the local club layout... which we are building... so I am not sure why the club layout is going to be different to what we build at hame.

    regards, Graham

    Apart from a couple of coach parts, my only purchase at Reading was a horsebox and in true style I ripped it open this morning with a view to starting it :)
    It will need a couple of mods, usual underframe stuff replacing axleguards v hangers etc with etched parts.

    One oddity is the ventilator bonnet, which is totally different from the drawing or CPL and Slaters offerings and any photos, so it will be removed and replaced. other than that it should be a quickie :)

    Ventilator oddities notwithstanding I wish that you could buy that sort of kit in 1/32, it will make up into a really nice vehicle.
