Ed's Big Bruv comes to stay


TT-Pete

A chance purchase from the RMweb classifieds (cheers Damian!) means I am now able to show a comparison between the relative sizes of a class 73 ED in OO and TT scales:

Unfortunately it also shows that the cab castings could have done with a little more work to make them more prototypical, but at the time I was only working from photographs and “close enough” was good enough.

Great modelling, Pete.

 

It's amazing how much 1mm makes such a difference in overall size.  TT must be the last bastion of model railway scratchbuilding as everything has to be made by hand!

 

Brilliant stuff.
