Deltic Prototypes - Bachmann Chassis Fitted



Chassis matched up to the Dapol body at last




needed to nip a little bit out of the chassis sides to clear the angular webs that link the Dapol tanks to the body sides and then used a bit of Hornby handrail wire bent in a long C section inserted into two 0.6mm holes in the Dapol tanks to hold the sides in place. I will add a keeper plate over this wire secured with screws to the underside to stop the wire from dropping out in service. The fit is so good that I am minded to not bother with any other form of chassis/body fitting screws, lets see what it looks like with the bogies on laugh.gif


Time to start detailing the body next, side grilles etc then it's ready for paint
