  1. I thought LBC were resin cast. I have a C69 trailer with metal ends and brass sides and I think they are the same manufacturer - MTK.
  2. Radley Models has now been acquired by Phoenix Paints. https://www.phoenix-paints.co.uk/news/metro-models-updateradley-models/metro-models-update The range won’t be available for a while but further announcements will follow.
  3. You might need to make the transfers as I don’t know anyone who makes them. The modern ones have blue numbering so it’s not too difficult to produce. You could look for generic numbers and adept them.
  4. Modelmaster used to do them. Not sure what’s going on with them. Found some on Fox transfers website. They are for buses but might well work ok. https://www.fox-transfers.co.uk/transfers/fleet-name-london-transport https://www.fox-transfers.co.uk/transfers/white-fleet-number-set-stl-g-d-b-rt-srt-plus-pairs-101-200
  5. The T stock of MW/MV stock as it was originally known as was varnished teak when new. The T stock had a mixture of cars some were steel panelled (the six 1927 MW motors, five 1929 trailers [both types with mouldings] and all the 1931-32 cars which were totally plan) and others were teak. It was the case that all the lower panels were steel (a requirement from the early days of electrification) so the teak was stippled here. There were off course a few ex steam stock coaches converted into T stock. The later 1931-32 cars were crimson I believe but it that is not clear on the old black and white photos. I do think that once the LPTB took over many of the Met’s teak cars were painted light brown. This was after some experiments in the late 1930s with alternative liveries on the Steam stock cars which were by all accounts unsuccessful! The lighter brown gave way in the later 1950s to a darker brown and this included all T stock cars.
  6. I was going to use piano wire straightened with a vice/drill. I made up some brass and copper tube masts. I’ll dig out some photos.
  7. I was surprised a few years ago to see such a modern bogie on the vehicle at the LTM. See the attached photo taken from the museum’s site.
  8. I’ll see if I can find out the latest news on the range.
  9. I was looking to go down the Copydex route with natural stone (wife is badly allergic to nuts so Woodland Scenics is a no no!). I would be interested to hear experiences with it.
  10. Yes they are T stock cabs from the Radley models range. The flat one is from the 1929 driving trailer and the angled one is from the 1927 driving motor. These would be useful if you are looking to convert some up. I have been using the Dapol (ex Airfix) LMS compartments as well as the Garfar coaches as well.
  11. I have the masters for the 1960 track recording train including the 1973 stock trailer which I must get round to finishing.
  12. Should be yes. It was to have a resin chassis with all the seating. The body was going to include better and more correct detailing. hopefully I can get round to finishing it along with the 1923 Cammel Laird trailer too.
  13. I was working on a revised 1931 trailer for Phil which I still have. It would be up to the same higher standards as the 1926/27 trailer I did for him a few years ago.
  14. Thanks for the update Arun. I also developed a few 4mm kits for Phil and I am hopeful I will get back some of the masters that never made it to development.
