Lima made models of three BR mark 2b coaches in H0 scale: a TSO, an FK and a BFK. The BFK would be a strange choice for a model in any scale - only 9 were made - but it suits a conversion into an example of the more plentiful mark 2a BSO. The BSO was always a favourite coach to travel in because the seats got first-class legroom and larger tables.
Here are some photos of what I did ...
6. Add another strip of lead on top (glue with epoxy resin), and drop in new wheels and axles. I started with Markits 10.5 mm wheels on their 24.5 mm axles (this photo) but these are rather sloppy in the Lima bogies. I have since swapped these for 10.5 mm wheels on 25 mm axles by Steam Era Models and these run as though they were tailor-made.
I dare not refit the roof for a final photo because it is so difficult to remove. Painting to follow one day.
