GNR D3/LNER/BR D3 4-4-0 etched kit

29 GNR D2 class with a flat footplate were rebuilt to GNR D3/LNER D3 4-4-0s as depicted by this new kit. 19 lasted into BR days, the last being scrapped in 1951. Four different cabs were fitted over their working lives, early or late Ivatt, Stainmore side window (3 locos) and finally that fitted to number 2000 (later 62000), a Directors loco. The kit provides all these cab options plus the parts to provide the other minor variations they carried.

The kit is etched in brass, with a nickel silver chassis. The chassis can be built to OO, EM or P4 gauge and has standard 6mm horn block half etched cut outs for those wishing to fit compensation or springing. Lost wax brass casting, spring buffers, etc. are included but motor wheels and gears are required to complete the model.

Either of the two existing Ivatt tenders from the LRM range are supplied with the kit, the Horseshoe or Self Trimming types.

Priced at £120, the kit is now available by mail order and will be on sale, together with the other LRM new releases, at the York MRS exhibition over Easter weekend.
