DC 460000


DC 460000

Just primed the coach



    What a fantastic version of DC460000

    How did you make the suspension for this?
    Hi
    Thanks for the comment ,for the suspension i glued a small piece of plastic card under the bearing with 3mm overhang each side and when it set i put a 3 link coupling spring in place with a dab of glue.

    Thanks Connor
    That's a really interesting way regarding how to make it. I hadn't thought to use a setup like that.

    I might just pinch that idea......

    all i can say is WOW love it for 9708 did you just leave that door blanked or did you put a grill/vent on it?
    For 9708 i left it blank but i was at nottingham today and picked up some Evergreen clap board 4051 and with this i could make the louver/vent ,but im thinking of selling this one later and making a new SGT and getting all Bachmann coaches for better detail and scale and also fitting all the lighting into the coaches and optical car.

    there's some new pictures of the optical car with paint and cant-rail lining

    Thanks Connor

    like the idea i was hunting for etched vents all this time when i had 4 packs of clap board sitting about up stairs
    Ha ha that's normally the case ,i got it from newbryford's yellow workbench thread where he is doing some nice coaches.

    Thanks Connor
