  1. Hi Looking good, have you made it a more permanent/stronger fix? Andrew
  2. Hi I never claimed this thread was to give you the most accurate class 37 possible, at the end of the day it's a toy, something to keep me amused in my spare time. Andrew
  3. Hi Ben Details uploaded to a new topic http://www.rmweb.co.uk/community/index.php?/topic/116575-lowering-lima-class-37/ Regards Andrew

Hi Following a request from a previous post I thought I'd share my method of lowering the lima class 37 - A few pics pre-modification - Starting with the trailing bogie remove the raised sections on the bogie and chassis. Moving on to the motor bogie I think it is easier to modify the chassis rather than try and evenly alter the height of the bogie pads. All you need is some plastic "L" girder, a sharp blade and some glue, I used revell contacta as it was handy. Once the bogie has been removed cut a length of L girder and place it above where th

  8. From the Modeltorque website - It is with deep regret that we advise of the passing of the gentleman behind ModelTorque, Graham Rooke, shortly before Christmas 2012.
