Hi All, Over the past few months I have been working on a number of etches, primarily for my own 4mm P4 needs. I am now in a postion to accept orders for a number of items including sprung milk tank chassis, milk tank detailing parts, sprung BR 8 shoe clasp brake chassis and sprung diesel bogie bits. Further information can be found here: www.rumneymodels.co.uk There are also details of forthcoming items such as fully sprung single bolster coach bogies. Many thanks, Justin Newitt
I am currently in the process of creating a number of etches to convert the David Geen 4mm kit to types not covered by the two currently avaliable. This is a lengthy process and has involved measuring up vehicles in the Winter cold and trips to the NRM in search of drawings (it's a hard life I know ). There will evenually be 6 chassis etches covering GWR 20'6 and 21'6 types, Post War LMS diagrams and the other LMS ones, SR and LNER. CAD drawings for the chassis are all but complete (you'd be suprised how many differences there are) and will be similar to this: Then there will be detailing etches covering things like brake levers, walk ways, ladders and platforms etc all in order to produce a model of the Whitland to Kensington milk train in the mid sixties. Details of the models I've attacked so far and further details on the chassis can be found here. And just to wet you appetite: As you can imagine with a type of vehicle that covered some 50 odd diagrams (including 2000 gallon types and Ro-Rail trailers) from 4 underframe 'suppliers' there are some grey areas that I hope someone out there will be able to help with. LNER milk tanks: I have details of the diagram numbers for these but no information on lot numbers, running numbers and almost as important which dairies had which lots. The other three companies allocated lots to a batch of vehicles for a specific diary so I assume that the LNER did the same? If anyone can help with this or point me in the right direction that would be great. Also any photos of LNER types again would be great. I'm aware of the photos on Paul Bartlett's site. I seem to remember seeing a photo of one with platforms somewhere but I have no idea where it was. SR milk tanks: I have details of diagrams and running numbers and some for which diaries were associated with which type. Diagrams 3155 and 3157 where Unigate (eventually of course) and 3159 were Express Dairies, does anyone have any information on the others? GWR milk tanks: Does anyone know which Dairies were assocaited with diagrams O.61 and O.63? A good reference for milk tank diagrams collated from various scources can be found here. It isn't exhaustive but it's a start. Many thanks, Justin
