LNER B16 wheels

Postby PeteT » Thu Sep 01, 2016 12:36 pm

Afternoon All,

Seeing as the Exactoscale summer sale has been extended til the end of September, I thought I'd double check whether they do the correct wheels for a B16/1. However, that research has lead to me finding that I can't find them anywhere!

If I am correct I am looking for 5'8" 20 spoke with a 13" IL crankpin (info from the Slaters 7mm lists, I keep forgetting to double check in my Yeadon Register).

Exactoscale do 5'8" 18 spoke 13" crankpin between spoke wheel aimed at a K3, while Ultrascale do a 5'8" 18 spoke 11" crankpin between spokes aimed at an N2.

Alan Gibson do a 5'8" 20 spoke, but only 10" crankpin throw aimed at a Caledonian 179.

Was there anything in the Sharman range worth keeping my eye out for? (thankfully this project isn't top of my pile...)

Sharman did a suitable wheel but try to get one now!
