Industrial conversion from 0-6-0 Jouef tank


Recommended Posts

Hi all,

 

I know this is a little basic, but I thought I would share with you a conversion I have almost finished on one of the 0-6-0 Jouef tanks we have seen on theese pages before.

 

I love the chassis under the model and looking through my collection of drawings and photos I realised I wasnt to far off some of the Hudswell Clarkes I really like.

 

Anyway after a bit of  hacking at the original body, removing the cab and various other details I have constructed new tank sides and ends, cab and bunker along with addidng some fitting sfrom the scrap box. I know it isnt perfect, but for a cheap and easy project it was most fun and has kept me busy since my fall of a locomtive as I have required two weeks off my feet.

 

Anyway, some photos below, nameplates and worksplates are on order and once final painting and varnishing are done and a roof made I think it will look quite handsome.
