Another commision completed

 

The lovely current Hornby B17 Sandringham converted to the Footballer class version Manchester United.No idea why the owner didnt want West Ham United ?? :jester: After much gritting of teeth she's finished.

Pulling a repainted and lined Bachmann Tender, Westinghouse Pump removed . Cylinders Lined out. Detail pack not fitted as it has to be posted back to owner.

Looks like you kicked a goal with this conversion!

I wish Hornby would hurry up and make a B17/6 with a group standard tender in apple green, seeing as the football association gave the class its nickname, and the B17/6 was the most common sub-class, which should (in theory) generate more sales than Hornby's apple green B17/1. I'm sure many would want a model of their chosen club, but wouldn't be able justify getting one in BR green because of their chosen time period.

Latest commision a Crownline conversion kit for the LNER B12 using the Hornby body as a base. She will be teamed up with the Sandringham Tender left over from the earlier B17 Footballer conversion.

The fold up chassis is the same as the PDK A1/1 I have built , nice easy fold up design.

However try the Drivers and there is almost no allowance for sideplay. I have had to file the axle bearings to a sliver just to get some sideplay , perhaps they designed them as display only  :scratchhead:

Probably a halfway house between OO and EM.

Hi micklner

 

Stunning work as always.

 

Sorry but there is only one name for the B17 and that is Tottenham Hotspur, I was born in Tottenham and have supported them for the last 50 years.

They haven't been doing very well recently.....

I know, I sometimes think it's me being a jinx on them, things can only get better.

 

If I knew that was that case I would start supporting Arsenal.

 

Hoping they finish in seventh place this season to get out of that Europa League which is the kiss of death playing on a Thursday evening.

 

Anyway back to micklner's thread seeing the quality of work is always a pleasure to see.

 

Regards

 

David

I think we're all agreed a London club is better than yet another nod to the United side of the Mancs…!  :stinker:

 

Lovely work Mick. Sorry for hijacking the football theme!

Hi Mick,

 

Excellent work on the B17 and the C7.  I like your lining, this does take time and yours is exemplary.

 

Just to add my two bobs worth re: footballers.    I changed Grimsby Town to Liverpool in BR though.

That bogie etch is Dave King / Paul Hill design at its very best!!

Don't remember that chassis, if it is one of mine it was a steep learning curve!!

Signed by Paul Hill 1994 or 2004 (I think) now binned as that part of etch not needed.

 

Well, there you go.... :jester:
