I normally model in 4mm scale, but I have been asked to supply a 7mm version of my Anhydrite wagon kit, here is a link to the 4mm version

http://www.rmweb.co....__fromsearch__1

 

I need to purchase castings, preferably in white metal for a BR 9 leaf heavy duty spring and heavy duty axle box. I also need BR 13 inch heavy duty buffers and a suitable vacuum pipe.

 

Can anybody recommend a supplier who can offer these items. I would prefer to use one source to save on postage costs, but as long as I can get the correct items different suppliers will be O.K.

Hi Ian,

 

Invertrain have various buffers and axle boxes listed. I'm not sure if they'll suit but you could give them a call and ask - http://www.invertrain.com/index.php

 

JLTRT do the vacuum pipes. Best to give them a call as I don't think they're listed as individual components on their site http://www.justliketherealthing.co.uk/

 

HTH

Thanks gents, I'll take a look at what they can offer. Never having done any 7mm stuff before I didn't really know where to start looking and the internet searches I did didn't bring up anything I could use.

 

Cheers

Once again, many thanks gentlemen, this is most helpful. The Malbut link is particularly useful, it looks like the axlebox and spring used on their dogfish wagon is very close to the one I need. I'll do a bit more research and then if they are correct I'll order some. I have been able to order some of the other parts from Invertrain, so thanks for that link Tom.

 

Cheers

Ian
