Well and truly enjoying my set A blood and custard and have set B and four singles on order.

The brake end corridor blanks will finish off the set nicely.

They will all look good behind my Finescale Brass Brit that should arrive mid June.

Keep up the good work.

Are they level/the same height behind the Brit?

I don’t see the odd mm height difference either. Too busy enjoying myself.

Afternoon all,

Good news! The Mk1 Set As in Maroon livery are now in stock.

We will also have a few BSK, CK and SK coaches available separately.

For anyone with a pre-order, Paddy will be on the phone this afternoon/tomorrow morning to put everything through.

Images and details available here: https://www.elliscla...s-maroon-livery

What do we think?

Cheers,
Ellis.

Gentlemen,

Thank you for your comments.

 

1. Re coach height. Can Class 27 please measure exactly hoe much our coach is higher than he diesel loco in the picture ? As the buffers line up it would look like our body does not have the correct dimensions but all body dimensions have been taken from the Parkin book. So this is a mystery.
If he coach height offends then I could simply make a new set of springs for the C/W bogies so the whole caach will come down accordingly but then he buffers will be lower too.
Are we sure that Heljan got it right ?


Cheers,

Andries 

 

Hello Andries,

 

this may have been posted before and I have missed it, but here goes.

 

All of these heights are from the rail head (top of the rail).

 

12'41/2" to the top of the roof 86.63mm in 7mm scale,

 

4'01/4" to the bottom of the body 28.15mm in 7mm scale,

 

3'51/2" to the C/L of the buffers 24.2mm in 7mm scale,

 

8'41/4" from the bottom of the body to top of the roof 58.48mm in 7mm scale. This is worked out thus 86.63 - 28.15 = 58.48mm.

 

All the sizes are from the Parkin book on Mk1s.

 

It has been posted before that your coaches are between 91 & 90mm high that works out at 4.37mm (71/2") Max. or 3.37mm (53/4") Min. too high.

 

Also the CW bogies look too square around the edges of the castings when you look at this photo. Also the transom beams go to the ends of the coach.

OzzyO.
