  1. GWR K40 Full brake 

    First Post ! not fully sure with how the website works but this looks like a good place to put my first post . this is a Bachmann/mainline collett coach except the sides have been stripped and some K40 full brake sides attached . The K40 brakes were of course bow-end coaches but i suppose this could pass as a K41 ,K42 or maybe a K45 with some Imagination. This is my first time working with brass so ignore the slight shoddiness !

    Here is the Frame with my usual coach weathering , the bogies it comes with need to have the underside whittled down before attaching a NEM socket / pocket. On the other end is something of an antique ; its called a bill bedford coupling and it slots in a hole on either wagon/coach and keeps up the appearance ( richard ! ) of all those pipes and things in between the coaches . Will soon post a picture of the body soon !

      Hello, and welcome to RMweb!

       

      The forum topics list is a good place to start. For example, the Modifying and Detailing RTR forum:

      https://www.rmweb.co.uk/community/index.php?/forum/176-modifying-detailing-rtr-stock/
       

      I’m afraid that you’ll  find that status updates such as this pretty quickly fall below the fold, never to be seen again :(
