New 'stuff' from Lanarkshire Models & Supplies

Recommended Posts

….I'm working on the modern Hornby tender mod at the moment, a bit more involved.

 

I have a Hornby BR1D/E intended for the DJH DoG, so that's handy....

I have searched high and low for some scale drawings of LMS coach rood water fillers. I thought that Arthur Whitehead had included it on one of his drawings..but so far no luck! ( I can find a drawing of internal pipework.. maybe one of the external pipework may reveal a tank filler!

Ooooo! Now they are nice! I'll hold off building my Slater's hoppers for a while! Maybe I'll just cut them down in readiness!

 

Cheers

Cutting it a bit fine I know but the mould with the masters in was poured yesterday and should be casting from on Wednesday it will then produce the submasters for a production mould and plenty of NER hopper buffers for 'Workshop Wise' in Newcastle.

 

Fingers crossed....

If you can't sell them there Dave you won't sell them anywhere else!

You see!   And that's why I like to work from photos of the actual thing and thanks to Paul Gallon who came up with some nice close ups.

NER 20T hopper wagon buffers now in the second stage of the mould making, the production mould will be poured tomorrow so all going well they will be cast at the weekend.

I was thinking I may do a bulk pack of five sets (20 buffers) as most people have multiples of these wagons. What do you think?  It will save the planet from excess packaging and save you lot a quid....

I'd best get another hopper then! I only got four initially! Mind, those I have will be in LNER livery, and I'll be doing a few in NER later!

 

Bring em on!

 

Cheers

Managed to cast quite a few hundred NER hopper wagon buffers yesterday so they will be available at Workshop Wise in Stannington, Newcastle this Saturday.

They will be on the website for everyone next week.

Forgot to say, the new etched coupling rods will also be released at the Workshop Wise event, what are they? .........

 

LNER B1, LNER V2 and LNER A3 which will also fit the A4 and a few other big Gresley locos.

They all have the alternative shape of fishbelly flute or straight flute as per the changes over the life of these locos.

I'll see if I can get some photos done later.

Home and rested after the trip down to Workshop Wise in Newcastle, enjoyed the craic and the bacon baps.  The new NER hopper wagon buffers went down well and other people saying how's about doing buffers for the Slater's NER hopper now it's being re-released only to be pointed in the direction of the poster on the display board, mumbles about going to Specsavers.... (other opticians are available). :blind:

The new LNER coupling rods also sold a few with requests for complete LNER valvegear sets being suggested.

 

All in all a good day so thanks to the EMGS Borders group organisers, workers and the ladies and gents in the kitchen. :thankyou:

Yes, I think they've been looking over my shoulder as I've got details of a similar one complete with the rail clamps. Hey ho.

For now though it's some Southern pre-group ones before the end of the year.

So I don't think I'll bother now although if moulded in one piece it would be difficult for those who modelled nearer scale gauges....
