Im looking forward to seeing this Ian, I have had the Nucast kit on the go in the background for the last few years but it keeps getting pushed aside for other projects.

 

I would suggest using two Comet Stainer 2-6-4 chassis and lopping off the rear portion as the wheelbase is correct.

I'm not sure about RTR chassis as the wheel spacing could be a problem along with the wheel size (5' 3" / 21mm)

I suppose you could use the Fowler 2-6-4 chassis again or the Crab, but the Crab wheels being slightly bigger may cause clearance issues as well as the rim profile and balance weights being slightly different if that bothers you.

Hi darren,

thanks for that its about what I was thinking but I had seen else were of someone using a Bachmann n class!!! and have seen pics it looks ok but my thoughts are for some thing along the lines of either a fowler chassis or the crab, its not got to bang on I just want it to look ok,it will get covered in weathering anyway so that will help!

again thanks for the info!

cheers ian
