Hi guys,

 

Bit of a daft one here, is it possible to get a reasonable representation of Gresely's GN teams using the Hornby Railroad ones? (I ask as I have several lurking around, so it seems a shame to not use them)

 

Many thanks

It depends how reasonable the representation is supposed to be, but from my perspective the answer is no.  For a start, the roof profiles are different.  Window and door arrangements would also be different so would require building new sides.  But on the other hand they are both teak.

Wow, the Link has just wet my appetite to try, I suspect it could be just as easy to rub the sides down to smooth, and re bead them with reallly fine micro strip. The roof will be the hardest bit to get right :D

 

I suppose I could do worse than see if I can find some good drawings of the GN ones

 

Thanks guys!
