    What do you make of this one???? https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/133772124521?hash=item1f2570a169:g:U4YAAOSwILFgrk2J
  4. I thought for a minute that you had "gone 0-gauge", until I recognised the left-over Markits bits!
  5. Excellent project, I've always been fascinated by the ironstone lines. Cheers, Dave.
  6. Heres a recipe for "a couple of bits of pipework"; fairly self-explanatory, three holes drilled in a piece of brass angle, and offcuts of copper wire left over from Markits clack-valves. Soldered from behind and then filed flush Size roughly gauged from photos (it varied a lot) and compared to the model. The assembly is 7mm wide. Super-glued to the chassis frame just below the footplate.
  7. And leave it to soak for a bit. The lubricant in the RG4 gearbox goes hard after a period.
  8. Hi Jack, When the paint chips off the footplate edge, I roughen the edge with an abrasive block (Garryflex) followed by running a brush-full of Carrs metalblack along it, and then matt-black. Do this LAST, just before the loco goes into service! On my narrow gauge locos I'm experimenting with making the footplate edge from black plasticard. The G6 brakegear was in the kit, but if you need SR brakeblocks, Mainly Trains did a very nice etch, now available from Wizard Models: https://www.wizardmodels.ltd/shop/locomotive/mt182/ All the best, Dave.
  9. Stunning work Jack; I'm particularly impressed by your pipework
  10. Just realised I havent done the injectors! However all that is visible in ANY of the photos is a couple of bits of pipework below then footplate.
  11. Just a bit of weathering to add now, plus of course the usual touching up of the footplate edge. How DO you stop the paint chipping???
