Having received a set of Ultrascale 18.83 wheels for this loco I decided to do the conversion. Thanks to all those on the Heljan thread who made the task a lot easier.
I decided not to do a 'how too' photo session because this can be found on the other thread. Suffice it to say the Ultrascale conversion is easy to do provided you follow their instructions. Mine ran ok first time - highly reccomended and sorts out problems of erractic running experienced by others.
I decided to fill in the hole in the buffer beam using rubbed down plasticard and then dry brushed weathered the whole loco.
Here are a few photos
For those of you who know about diesel lights can you advise whether both white lights should be 'on' going forward together with both red tail lights - only the right side is operating on mine at present?
