Triang SR bogie luggage van in P4

Posted by ullypug , 08 November 2018 - * * * * * · 389 views
P4
One of my long standing 'round tuit' projects has been a Triang bogie luggage van that was given to me by the late Bob Haskins. As is the way, I was looking for something else in the modelling room when I came across a box containing a number of wagons he'd given me, some years ago now.
I knew I'd picked up a detailing conversion pack for it from Roxey Mo...

AA3 Toad conversion to P4

Posted by ullypug , 16 August 2018 - * * * * * · 515 views
p4, Oxford
I was doing a demo at the recent Railwells show and was pleased that I managed to do virtually no modelling. Always the sign of a successful 'demo' weekend.
I did get as far as dismantling an Oxford models AA3 ex GW Toad in BR livery.
Several people pointed out the errors in the model (apart from the chassis being supplied in the wrong scale as the wheels...

43xx - Part 6 Tender

Posted by ullypug , 12 July 2018 - * * * * * · 490 views
P4
With the loco virtually finished, I've set about making a tender to go with it. This is a Mitchell 3500 gallon one, pretty much made up as per the instructions. Wheels are Ultrascale.
The front two axles are meant to be compensated but the instructions noted that the compensation beam could be omitted if you wanted to have the tender weight bearing on the...

43xx part 5 - loco finished

Posted by ullypug , 01 July 2018 - * * * * * · 530 views

Following some time off for good behaviour, walking the 192 mile coast to coast trail (which was absolutely fab I have to say), I've returned to the modelling bench this week and just about got 5311 to the finished stage.
The chassis has been motorised and pick ups added and all works. The body has been painted and last bits added. It's surprising how lon...

Very little to do with modelling

Posted by ullypug , 13 June 2018 - - - - - - · 402 views

Very little to do with modelling but a very enjoyable way to spend time none the less!
Full modelling to resume in a couple of weeks.

43xx part 4 - boiler

Posted by ullypug , 07 June 2018 - * * * * * · 505 views
P4
The chassis was retrieved from the paint booth and I made the final assembly. I had that nagging feeling I should have done something about the slide bars and cylinders and so it proved. Wheels were reinserted and no problems with the quartering but there just wasn't space between the leading crank pin and the back of the cross head. So dodge number 1, I...

43xx part 3 - footplate

Posted by ullypug , 24 May 2018 - * * * * * · 397 views
P4
After a very enjoyable weekend at Expo EM I've had time this week to get back to the mogul.
This is the current state of play. Footplate and cab done so far. This is made easier by the use of my RSU and I've discovered the technique promoted elsewhere of using slivers of solder, placing these near the join and watching it flow once the foot pedal is depre...

43xx part 2 - chassis details

Posted by ullypug , 29 April 2018 - * * * * * · 535 views
p4
With the chassis assembled, the cosmetic sides were added and then the time came for the wheels to be trial fitted so the brake gear could be assembled. Taking a few lessons from the various High Level kits I've built over the years, this is demountable. The brake hangers fit over spigots of wire soldered to the chassis and will be spaced out by tubes of...

43xx part 1 - chassis with CSB

P4
In between lurching from crisis to crisis at work, I've been making progress with the 43xx chassis. Or is that as respite from the crisis at work...
The kit is of Mitchell vintage and must be fairly old since the label on the box has it supplied by Slaters. That's going back a bit. The prototype will be 5311, since I've a very nice photo of it at Wells.

Wagon bashing

Just a quick update. Most of the main modelling activity has concentrated on the layout at the moment, but with a couple of trips away and a recent holiday in the Lake District over Easter, I had the opportunity of building a few wagons. Nothing particular exciting, just a selection of Cambrian, Chivers and Parkside kits. In no particular order these are...
