Re: Rumney Models - Express Dairy Milk Tank Plates and Change of Address

Thanks Rod and Alastair. All going quite smoothly so far which is nice.

Those tank wagons are looking great guys! Need to try and get some transfers sorted for mine at some point so I can get it finised.

These include both the company plate and the distinctive round number plate that was attached to the b...

Re: Milk Tank Madness

Thanks Iain. Hi Mike. There were no spring stops on the centre axle of the SR milk tanks at least as far as all the pictures and drawings I have show. This is one of those curious details that varied depending on who built the milk tanks. The GWR and LNER had stops on all three axles, the SR just th...

Re: Milk Tank Madness

Some recent progress on an old project thanks to the wonders of modern technology and traditional lost wax casting. SR Milk Tank Progress.JPG The etches for this have been around for at least 3 1/2 years looking at my last post but one. The stubling block was always the springs and axleboxes which a...

Re: Rumney Models - Wagon Castings, Anchor Mount Tank Wagon Parts & Detailing Bits

Those axleboxes are very tasty looking Justin. :thumb Hi Iain, I'm really pleased how they've come out and it's nice to be able to release them. It feels like a fair old process to get to this stage. More to come as well (as you may have deduced from the missing codes), hopefully later in the year....

Re: JJNewitt's Wonderful World of Wagons - Anchor Mont Tank Wagon

Tourret quotes diameters of 5ft 7.5ins, 5ft 10.5ins, 6ft 2.875ins, 6ft 7.25ins and 7ft 2.125ins for loads of 10, 12 or 14T, covering Class A, class B and unclassed traffic. I'd completely overlooked table 4 in Tourret's book. The diameter of the Bachmann anchor mount tank varies between 27.2mm and ...

Re: JJNewitt's Wonderful World of Wagons - Anchor Mont Tank Wagon

The body illustrated is intended to be a Class B [it has the valve wheel for bottom discharge], but its length does suggest that it's a 14T Class B, not the 20T Class B it is purporting to be. Bachmann do have a 14T Class A, the one in Benzole livery. What I don't know is whether their diameters ar...

Re: Dave Bradwell Springing units

To me it doesn't really matter where the 50g figure came from or indeed the reasoning behind it. It's a reasonably achieveable weight for most 4mm wagons. I don't think you could consistently get much more in British 2 axle wagons unless they're covered types. If I could get more in then I would put...

Re: gearbox designs for sprung BO-BO or Co-Co bogies

floppy gears I don't beleive are compatible with fully sprung and would more then likely cost more to assemble from scratch Nothing wrong with floppy gears in RTR drivetrains, it is the very reason why they can be used sucsessfully in fully sprung bogies. The slop gives room for movement. Personall...

Hi Russ,

It's soldered in place. The final fold at the top is made after it's been fitted to give you something to hold whilst wielding the iron.

Re: rectifying bowing plastic wagon sides

I generally find that when a plastic wagon bows it is down to the fit of the parts. Small bows and streses that are introduced during assemebly aren't necessarily noticeable at first but gradually work their way through the body. The main culprit for this I've found is the floor which seems to rarel...

Re: Wagon Corner

That's coming along nicely Jeremy! Loos great.

The sides shouldn't need supporting at the top. They are quite robust and there's also a lip all the way around the resin roof which will prevent the brass sides from moving inwards. It should be a very strong structure once the roof is glued in.
