Great to have you back - you've been missed!  Loving the rolling stock - how did you make the Mk2 BSO with the wider passenger window spacings?  It looks like it must have been a real labour of love.

Thankyou David for those kind words. Window spacings were gauged and measured using pics and the TSO's i had already built........ yes they did take a while. lol.  I have also built two FK's and i think i might build another couple plus some TSO's and a BFK sometime.

Very nice work indeed - must have been the mother of all cut-and-shut jobs, and you've got a first class (groan) finish on them too. Seriously impressive.

First of all ...... The coaches are absolutely cracking.... Great work on them.

 

I have just purchased a MKII off of ebay and I am looking to do a cut and shut job similar to you.... Can you please let me know some of the pit falls to expect as well as where you purchased the window frames from?

 

Lastly, the underframe..... Did you have to add parts to it? ... If so where did you purchase the from....

 

Regards

 

Jim

Hi Jim thankyou for those kind words.

 

Firstly no real pit falls as such just take your time with your measuring and cutting. The window frame etch was a collective thing from several members who got together and placed a large order to a etching company  so it didnt  work out too expensive. This was several years ago and are no longer available as far as im aware. However J M Hughes does a Mk2 window etch now. There list is on the traders list on the O gauge guild site.

 

As regards the underframe it is mostly scratch built except for the resin battery boxes which are Peter Cowling . The bogies are B4 Easybuild bogies.

 

Hope this helps,

 

Regards Rob.
