blog-0949202001408605785.jpgThe two coach set is based around the excellent comet coach kits , but changing their 9` bogie kits for the MJT compensated frames and white metal sides which, in my view, are much better representations of the type. I also used MJT sprung LMS buffers and vac pipes from Wizard Models.

Having upgraded all my loco`s for this project to DCC sound I decided to revert back to using 3 link couplings, but this time using magnetic bottom links. I used what remaining stock of PC Couplings I had left from the 1970`s , with additional frets from the excellent Wizardmodels own range.

I decided to use Bill Bedfords coach connections for this local set as they will work forever together!!!

Hope my eyesight is good enough to use this uncoupling gadget I bought about 1980..........

Nice work - lots of handles and door details which are a pain!

 

just a genteel weathering of the roof and underframe and they will be very nice indeed.

Thanks Baz,

 

I`ve begun to try my hand at weathering, but hav`nt gained enough experience to do the coaches yet. I`ve got a Tim Shackleton DVD to  study tho
