Havent seen anything on here about conversion of a Dapol Class 22 to the late production series so thought I'd start a thread on a current project. Am aware others have similar thoughts, had been hoping Dapol would oblige but that has been kicked in to touch. There is much to do on the front ends and that is where initial focus will be. Starting point was a headcode GSYP loco - a complete respray is required as the intention is to produce D6336 and D6342, both in BFYE. 30 mins in Superstrip - https://www.phoenix-paints.co.uk/products/125pq18 - got me to a bare shell... Hoping to be back to work in a few weeks so time is limited....
Hello I am contemplating doing a small EM Gauge project utilising the New Dapol Class 22’s and bubble cars, has anybody adjusted the wheels sets easily enough to EM Gauge without having to replace the wheel sets ? Thanks in advance for any responses Craig
I have been completeing or pushing a few projects further forward in the last couple of weeks, besides the layout progress in preparation for a BRMA meeting at my place on Saturday 18th August. One project was to fit headcodes to the Dapol/Kernow class 22. I chose some Heljan Western headcodes to fit inside the headcode boxes, which entailed removing the cab interiors by cutting the glue until they loosened sufficiently to take out (thanks Rick/gwiwer for the heads up on doing this). This pic also shows some of the newly completed ballasting at this end of the layout. The (fictional) maroon Hymek now has its glazing fitted. I need to reduce the yellow panels a little and fit tail/marker lights. The class 455 with the new treatment of the cab front handrails - these have to be painted white when I am ready. As this treatment looks much more successful than the previous one, I'll be redoing the other cab front to match. Bachmann class 57/0, 57 008 'Freightliner Explorer', lights. I had to repair some wiring and replace one of the marker lights with a new LED. In the second pic you can see that the new marker light is a little dimmer. And here is the Bachmann Collectors' Club Porterbrook class 57, 57 601, now with sound fitted (I swapped the Howes sound decoder out of 57 008 while fixing its lights). Enthusuasts nicknamed it "Purple Ronnie".
