A wonderfull Christmas time

Posted by Rob Pulham , 25 December 2009 - - - - - - · 131 views

I have just been surprised and delighted by receiving a DJH 7mm A4 with Corridor tender along with Slaters wheels and plunger pickup's. Even more encouraging is the 12 metres of Peco track that accompanied it. :lol:

I followed it up by suggesting to the wife that I now needed some LNER coaches to go with it.

I have to admit that like others I...

And a bit more

Posted by Rob Pulham , 16 December 2009 - - - - - - · 124 views

I made further progress on the BG on Sunday but the weather has been terrible so Photos have had to wait until today. I have assembled the underframe trussing and the solebars and made a start detailing the underframe castings - adding cable to the dynamo etc. The battery box looks to be quite a crude casting with no back as is usual with cast battery...

Coming along nicely - body assembled

Posted by Rob Pulham , 07 December 2009 - - - - - - · 138 views

I managed to make quite good progress with the coach body on Saturday PM and Sunday. After spending time making my mini drill powered cut off device (on my Q7 thread) I turned my attentions to this coach. I managed to get the body assembled after much pondering how to hold it square for soldering.

I ultimately soldered it with a cheap and cheerful version...

Started - Sides and ends detailed ready for assembly

After being away for a few days trying very hard to find further information for my Q7 build I decided that this could wait no longer (I have to be honest and say I am surprised I have resisted so far).

Any way I took it out of the box for real yesterday and started to ad the detail to the sides ending up tonight with the sides and ends below to show for...

What's in the box

Posted by Rob Pulham , 20 November 2009 - - - - - - · 127 views

I have now got around to taking a picture of what's included in the box. The additions are as you would expect wheels (slaters) and paint/transfers which will be Halfords Rover Damask Red and HMRS when I get there. The roof, floor, solebars and their overlays are all generic part and will need cutting to length for this 50' coach (presumably they...

CRT Kits LMS Period 1 Full Brake

Posted by Rob Pulham , 17 November 2009 - - - - - - · 153 views

I have decided to have a go at a blog for my 7mm builds as I don't expect to build that many - I have far too many 4mm kits in the to build pile to abandon 4mm.

I mentioned to my wife earlier this year that I would like to build something in 7mm as a display piece. She bought me this kit for my birthday in October.

I will post some pics of the...
