Is that a service they'll perform for anyone?

Yes they will but masters need to be made and soldered at high temperature to go through Vulcanisation mould process at 180 degrees. The costs are £20 for the mould and £2.80 per casting plus VAT.

Re: GWR Steam Railmotor Chassis

Another step forward toward the kit has arrived from Slaters who have done some lost wax casting for me in nickel silver. Is the buffer heads they have a neat hole in the end to find the centre for drilling out to fit the tale rod. IMG_4656.JPG Also included on the casting is a centre piece for the ...

Re: GWR Steam Railmotor Chassis

Seasons Greetings to all and I do appreciate all the great comments which does give me encouragement to get on with this project. As I have two pet hates with coach construction, I designed the body so that it becomes more rigid for handling and easy to fit the glazing without getting glue on the gl...

Re: GWR Steam Railmotor Chassis

With both sides done and attached. IMG_4586.JPG I moved onto the partitions. This is where I came to find errors, firstly the partitions are too wide I forgot to take off the thickness of the sides so an afternoons filing to get them to fit. Also the slots for the doors were on the wrong side so the...

Re: GWR Steam Railmotor Chassis

Started on the Body Cut out the ends first as these need to be folded to form the shape as the fold is very close to the window I ran a three square file along the fold lines on the back to weaken them then soldered the window frames in to strengthen the front before folding to shape.

Re: GWR Steam Railmotor Chassis

Post by allanferguson » Fri Nov 23, 2018 6:15 pm Very intrigued by your long 0.5mm drill. Evidently a long piece of steel rod; but how is the drill attached to it? Is that a collet on the end, or is there some other connection? It seems like the sort of thing I wouldn't need very often, but when I ...

The railmotor in the video is running through 1:5 and 1:6 turnouts. Not sure how this equates to radius. It does derail on the turnout at the back which...

Good to see another outing for your chassis Jeremy! I enjoyed the valve gear motion especially at the slower speeds.
Is that an 8' or a 9' trailing bogie?



Still running on the 9' trailing bogie will be ordering an 8' pre production test etch next.

I am now making up another 15 chassis kits to take to Scaleforum. The Underframe etch production tool has been made and one sheet run off it. All I need to complete the Underframe kit are some Buffer heads to fit my shanks. I will make the heads and have them lost wax cast after scaleforum. Then I ...

Re: GWR Steam Railmotor Chassis

To Get 2.6mm from the Centre of the Axle. Would not the simple answer be. Mark the centre line of the crank. Then put a 1/8th rod through the Axle hole so that it protrudes slightly onto the front. Put a bearing on it with a notch of the correct depth. Then put the notch over the centre line and dri...

Re: GWR Steam Railmotor Chassis

Hi Steve Good Question. I hadn't thought about people using the Mallard Bodies. So the short answer is No, but on the Underframe etch which is now ready for a production run. There are two holes and rivet overlays at the right spacings to mount the suspension Brackets to. I originally thought to fit...

Re: GWR Steam Railmotor Chassis

Hi Steve Thanks for asking about the wheels being "Pinned " Good question I didn't think to explain it when writing the instructions. Pinning the Wheels is making sure that they will not move on the axle so that they do not loose there quartering. This can be done in two ways by either dri...

On subject of wheels, for the Railmotor engine chassis I assume we will need 2 pairs of Alan Gibson 4847L (for P4), but what should we order for the trailing bogie? Are they 14mm Mansell or plain disc coach wheels? Hi Steve Correct for the Driving wheels. Good question on the bogie, I assumed they ...
