Re: Milk Anyone?

Hi Tim, thanks for that link. Very useful to know. Alas there were no milk tanks. I've never seen so many D&S kits in one place before. LOL.

Re: Milk Anyone?

Hi All. Just finished my LMS Milk Tank. I think it's turned out quite well {even if I do say so myself}. Completion did stall somewhat during the painting process. Started putting the lettering using Pressfix transfers and Micro Sol to fix them. The paintwork started to bubble up and come away. Not ...

Re: Pull the Other One!

Hi Paul. When I did the first block of leavers I followed your article whilst building it. I found it most useful. Hi Mark. I agree with you regarding the little pip or spigot as I call it. I think there will be much more stress on that point {excuse the pun} if you were operating it using point rod...

Re: Pull the Other One!

Thanks Tony, I will do better with my spelling next time. Honest! Hi Chris. It's all fairly straight forward. The instruction are good and easy to follow. The main areas to look out for are laminating the leavers and the drop boxes. When soldering the laminates for the leavers together get them as t...

Pull the Other One!

Hi All. I hope you are all keeping tickety-boo. This is my latest creation. I did the first block of five leavers at the beginning of the year and really enjoyed making them so I thought the other twenty should be four times as much fun. It doesn't take long for the luster to fade doing repetitive w...

Johnson Tenders

Hi All. I'm just nearing completion of the tender for my 4f. This is a S&D locomotive that was built as a batch by Armstrong and Whitworth. It looks like the Armstrong also built the tenders as well for this batch of 4f's. Based on the Johnson design they differed slightly to the normal 3500 gal...

Hi All. I was hoping to report that I've finished building my 4f. But due to a chassis issue {in fact the motor} it was not to be. However I have finished the body and after a good clean will be off to the paintshop. A big thank you to Morgan for supplying me with some 3D printed Air Valves. The las...

Re: Brassmaster 4F The journey

I understand what your saying Noel and I wouldn't attempt to do the holes as one thing will surely stick out is the holes were not even or level. It's just a shame Brassmaster didn't provide decent casting in the first place.

Keep Safe.

The outstanding parts I wanted were the Air Relief Valves. I was hoping to get replacements from Alan Gibson but their ones aren't sold separa...

Re: LMS Underframe Details

Hi Paul. Yes Bryan's photos are very useful. I wanted to see how much of any wiring was visible on a vehicle that was in service rather than the ones in LMS Coaches which were all fresh out of the box. No this coach will be just a Brake third. As I'm doing Edington Junction I don't think the motor f...

Hi All. Hope your all safe and well. I'm building a LMS 57' Suburban Brake Third {D1735}. Just about finished the underframe except for fitting the battery box, regulator box, dynamo etc. Before I fit them I want to add any wiring looms, pipework, safety loops.
