DJH Duke of Gloucester - Back on it's wheels


RedgateModels

So the Duke is back on it's chassis for the first fit with it's new Golden Arrow rear pony. I have had to move some of the under cab pipework to clear the pony swing bit it's not looking too bad. The front bogie is also attached with a new bracket - this had to be shorter than the one from the current kit again suggesting that the earlier 71000s were made too short!

Note I've fabricated the tender drawbar as per the DJH instructions but have not set the length. I'll attach the tender body first and check clearances on R2 curves before finally setting the cab to tender gap. Still not sure if there is enough front bogie clearance for R2 but we shall see .....

 

I've also received another set of GWR lining transfers from the HMRS - so nothing should hold me back once the chassis is sorted - apart from finding the time :lol:
