I’m wondering if the etches and chassis are still available?

I would also be interested if a set of etchings are available.

 

You'd need to contact David Varley directly (or via the Association). He hasn't visited RMWeb since August, so may not see messages posted here.

I've sent David Varley an email (using the email address I had for him from buying the original etches) advising him of the updates to this thread and asking if he still has any in stock.

 

regards,

 

Andy

Thanks for the heads up on the updates on the thread Andy.

 

Nick's done a wonderful job - hope to see his model in the flesh sometime!

 

I've dropped PMs to John and Will, but if there's anybody who wants a set of etches, I've got a few left, so if they drop me a PM and we can sort something out - not had much time or enthusiasm for modelling recently but hoping I might get my mojo back in the not too distant future.

 

Regards,

 

David

While useful background, I found that most of the 4mm instructions didn't apply at the "ground level" in 2mm, so I started writing up my own construction notes as a set of "alternative" instructions for the body.

 

They only go as far as I've got with my build, but I have attached a copy of my working draft, in case anyone wants to follow exactly what I've done.

 

I will update them once I've got the chassis built and know how to finish off the body.

Hello Nick, running behind the bus a bit, but looking forward to having a go at this soon. Did you ever issue an update to the notes at all?

 

cheers

Hi John. The short answer is no. The main reason is that I've posted details and photos of everything I've done since that first draft on this thread. The other reason is that the fold-up etched radial truck I used is not available commercially, so it wouldn't really be appropriate as part of a set of notes for other people to follow. If you are using the chassis Chris Higgs produced to go with the body etches, I suspect you will need to make different modifications.

Nick.

Thanks Nick, just gathering all the info I can and wanted to make sure I hadn’t missed anything . Thanks for the detailed updates, looking forward to trying this build using this thread  as inspiration.

Thanks to all the other contributors too, hope I can string something together and put it up on here.

 

cheers

John
