Just to bring things up to date on this forum that the latest additions to the PenBits range are sprung bogie kits for the Heljan Class 47 and Lion models.
You might have thought that the Heljan 47 would have been a similar fit to the Kestrel (well, I did, anyway) but it turned out that a fairly substantial redesign was required. The new kit shares the additional etched brake details with the earlier kits for Kestrel and the Bachmann 47 but, unlike them, takes the weight of the loco on the top plate of the bolster via a plastic card spacer.
The Lion kit is similar in form but does not need the extra detail: the plastic moulded sideframe and brake mouldings are re-used virtually without modification and the kit hides away discreetly inside them.
Other news: I'm hoping to release kits for the Heljan Falcon and Bachmann LMS 10000 locos before the end of the year. Further info on the website: http://www.penbits.co.uk (follow the links from the 'Latest News' noticeboard panel on the home page).
If you are making something new or have found something, announce it here.
