As some of you know 9fs are my favourite steam locomotives, so it is time to get on build the MOK kits that I have. I did build a DJH 9f about 15 years ago It runs nicely, it is battery powered but it doesn't have all the detail that is could have especially on the chassis. This one though does have plenty of details This is a Lee Marsh one that Martyn Welch has weathered. So it's now time to build mine to the same standard as 92150 I have three to build, so I think it is going to take me at least 3 years to do them all, 2 are going to be Tyne dock engines and the third 92087 is another Eastern region loco with a BR 1F tender. I always like to start with the tenders and get those out of the way, so it is 2 BR 1C tenders and a BR 1F, I also have a 1C for a 76000 class loco so I'm going to do that at the same time too as at least half the build time for a kit is understanding the instructions ! The most difficult thing to do with the tenders is to get the fold right at the top of the sides. The instructions give you a guide as to where to begin the fold but they don't mention what radius rod to form it round. The first one (a 1/C) was a bit of a guess really starting out with a 30mm rod then a 20mm and finally an 8mm. None of those are right, it really wants a 12mm one, so I ordered a 12mm kitchen door handle on Amazon as that arrived the next day, not just 1 but 10 thankfully it only cost 11.99 for them all. Here it is in action. One nice smooth fold over, not to the end of the side as that is still straight. This is how it ended up. Thats near enough if you ask me here are the rest of the sides The other thing I would say is the fold should start a little further up the side the instructions suggest. The 1/F is quite different, the base sides are flat it is only the overlays that are curved, so I will come to the one later.
