Hello Michael, 

 

I am interested in acquiring some of your LNER vans. I read about them in the last GOG Gazette and wondered whether these are now available and, if so, what the options are?

 

Many thanks for your time and help,

David

I believe that I'm starting the master fairly soon, then after soon other different open/van bodies

 

Michael

Any further thought on the clay hood? Would it be feasible to include room for a false floor (a recess for a piece of thick brass or plasticard that the under-frame is built on). Then bodies with and without covers (be it flat or pitched depending on period) could be swapped, allowing people to run full or empty rakes for one set of underframes.

Hello David

 

Are you referring to RTR or kit?

For the kit I've designed a sprung axleguard (RCH) and built one, so now need to modify very slightly and then get them etched. For the LNER design brakegear need to do the masters of them and cast

Regards

I'd made a start on doing the master for the body (as an empty open). Hadn' thought about anything to do with the tarpaulins at all.

Those are easily added anyway whereas you can’t remove them. Good news!

When I get round to adding the detail I'm sure photos will arrive on my workbench

Hi Mike - I am interested in both kit and rtr examples, depending on the price. Do you produce the rtr ones on an order-by-order basis id are they held in stock?

 

Thanks again for getting back to me, it's much appreciated.

Hi David

I don't keep them in stock but I'm hoping to have some for Telford. Once I get the axleguards in production and the LNER brake gear done then I can have them as kits. I believe the price at the moment would be £57 for RTR and £30 for the kit (excluding wheels).

Cheers Michael. I think I might be interested in some RTR ones - hopefully I should be able to make it to Telford this year. I'll drop you a line. 

 

Thanks again for your help,

Thanks CME

 

It looks better now its in Green.

I will have very soon a couple of new EMU ends as well (ok one's revised) Photos to follow soonish. I've redone the SR 1963 style end (ie CIG, VEP etc) and also a 4-LAV driving end.

Also soon in the pipeline when I get back to drawing is Sprung axleguards for wagons.

I've one new EMU end and one revised end to add to the list.

The new one is an end for a 4-LAV EMU. This will include a dome. I'll have to look at the photos and drawings to see if these are suitable for any of the 3-SUB units?.

The revised one is for the SR 1963 EMU stock, i.e. 4-CIG etc. These have separate whitemetal jumpers.

What the photos don't show is that both have the control panels at the back as well. I choose to photo the masters as already in grey and would show the detail better.

Prices £12.50 for both and that's for the pair.

I've sent some more drawings to the etchers, 6 in total. A couple of them are to upgrade the Model express ones and one (once I've produced the masters for the resin casting) to upgrade a MTK one. When they come back i'll post some pics. Not sure it'll class as a big announcement :laugh_mini2:

I've had some new etches back

They are:- Bulleid 15" vent Open or corridor third, BR CCT, MK1 GUV, MK1 sleeper. The GUV has the Grilles and the half etch at the rear to allow the Newspaper sorting van with the bow ends and toilet version to be produced. With the Sleeper when I do make the roof duct I'll do both lengths (think it was the BR coaching IO group the details were in) Prices except the Bulleid coach TBA

Firstly photo of a finished 06 and put the windows in the Bulleid 15” vent third. I’ve bent up couple of the air deflectors on the windows. 

I’ve also put the hinges and chalk boards on the CCT. Noticed I’ve missed out 2 of the door frames for the bars which if the rest goes well i’ll add on the next drawing I do.

Thanks, I would like to think there’ll be a vast improvement on the CCT when I’ve put it all together
