  1. Them be Westdale. The ends are stamped aluminium with no detail. Bit of a to glue as there isn't a lot of 'meat' to play with. I toyed with using cast whitemetal ends but yet to find anything that matches the roof profile.
  2. I'm currently bodging a couple of them (hopefully) to reasonable success. I picked up a Crownline conversion kit last year with almost enough parts to make a straight frame and curved frame version. Turns out the kit wasn't "complete" so had to raid spare parts bin and scratch build. First the straight frame is on the awful Hornby offering. The curved frame after reading some info here, (thanx peeps) Is a Grange boiler with Castle frames. Lots of fun!
  3. Watching with interest as I've several Hammond etches to build.
  4. Looking closely at Hattons pic, it seems the shelf is still there, 12 spoke bogie wheels and the vertical moulded cab handrails. Same half ar$ed shoite, different day, it would appear
  5. Persuaded the G/F to treat me to one for Crimble! Happy Xmas everyone !
  6. Let's not forget cab steps out of line of the cab doors and the massive slop in the coupling rods.
  7. Take your time, read the instructions. Everything fits together well. Pretty straightforward build.
  8. I live in Newfoundland and regularly buy stuff from UK. It's an etched kit, very lightweight and Dave Ellis isn't a postage pirate.
  9. Bachmann chassis will have the wrong wheel spacing. Buy the SE Finecast etched chassis, it's an excellent piece of kit!
  10. What about them autotrailers then, eh?
  11. Please let me/Us know when it's available. Looks great and I would like to have one!
