Re-livering a Bachmann Ivatt 2MT into LMS livery


Recommended Posts

I've recently purchased a Bachmann LMS/BR 2MT Ivatt with the intention of refurbishing as LMS example 1202. Before I go and start doing the re-livery, I want to confirm two things.

 

1. Lettering, would the HMRS "LMS block styles & Crewe straw loco and coach insignia" be correct?

2. Smokebox door and plates... does anyone know where if I can get custom made smokebox/workplates door plates at all? I cannot seem to find these for the LMS examples only the BR ones.

Pacific Models may be of help for the smokebox numberplate:

Narrow Planet may be able to do the works plate.

Hope that helps. 

 

Cheers,

Yes. The post 1946 block style for the lettering.

 

247 Developments do custom plates. But he already has 1202 listed.

Not 1202, but 1209 pictured here.

Polished I think, the first one definitely did. But I doubt it was for long!

 

This one is pretty new and looks like the front cylinder end is polished. Looks more so in a higher definition photograph in the link.

I was looking at photos of the LMS built ones the other day. Three more here.

The work on converting a BR Ivatt to a LMS example has begun.  However we have hit a slight snag. We are unsure as to which sized decals to use on the model. Looking at the DJH model they seem to use the smaller decals. Any help please! :)

I'll have a look in the Essery/Jenkinson book tomorrow if I remember.

 

All the details of number size, etc. is in that.

Ah yes! You completely reminded of this book of which I have a copy! I have found the information I required. What I now require is somewhere to that does the Shed Allocation code and the SC lettering that goes underneath the SAC.
