Re: Brassmasters Blk5 45232

Hi,

Has anyone tried embedding the lead shot in silicon sealant? Just an idea, I haven't tried it myself but I've always thought that silicon sealant is inert as it is used in food moulds etc. Any Chemists out there...……………. :?:

Stroudley Class E1 0-6-0 T

Good evening all,

Can anyone let me know where I can find the "throw" for a Stroudley E1 Tank from the Driving Axle to the Connecting Rod Crank? I have been unable to track down a sufficiently detailed drawing.

Hi Mark, The photo supplied by CSP models is the same one I referred to as being in MacLeod's Other Island; but the one in the book is a lot clearer, this is probably because the publisher has taken the image from the original and not just copied a copy.
