A Smallbrook Studio N.E.R. Chaldron dropped through the letterbox today. The 3 main parts (body, chassis and wooden brake block) are nicely cast in resin, also included are 2 lengths of wire. Instructions are very good for such a simple kit. I ordered mine without the Dapol wheels or tension lock couplings which knocked a couple of quid off the price. Some pics;
Note that the chassis has lead weight cast into it. The axles just clip into place.
Wheels are Gibson from my own stock not the Dapol ones which are usually supplied.
A little bit of flash is present on this end of the body casting, the other end is nicer. A couple of air bubbles are present but nothing that causes concern. The interior features plank and bolt head detail.
Body and chassis together weigh 11 grams.
I rather like this one.
Apologies for the quality of the pics., resin is a pig to photograph. A full build will appear in my blog in due course, after I finish building my Chilton Iron Works one.
