Look forward to seeing you make a start Mick.

I'm going to go for this one myself. I have to admit I'm not so much into trains but I do think this looks fascinating in all the pictures and am always looking for something different. This fit the bill this time [biggirn]

Hi.I wondered why had heard nothing about this, or why they not take any money.Anyway phoned up today, and found out they were having stock issues on this one.And have only just got stock in today from main warehouse.so be slight delay getting first parts.I was told to call back Tuesday, if money had still not been taken.I'm sure we get there and look forward to making a start soon.Cheers mick.

Hi finally made a start on this.by doing the first 3 stages.all parts are superb quality, and have had no fit issues. Like Andy on the official build I'm using 5 min epoxy, to glue it together.to stop the fogging you get with superglue. So it name plate on boiler door.then fit that.and add the drive rods to the first set of drive wheels. Cheers and happy moddeling mick.

PACK 2/12
we start the second pack stage 5, with fitting the front deck.glued an screwed on.fits well easy job.
Stage 6
The feed water system. This involves gluing the ends in the tank, putting the holding plate on then screw an glue to front deck. You will need a thin barreled screwdriver for the bottom 2 screws here, as they are very close to the ends of the tank. And access is tight.all fitted together well.no problems.enjoying this very much. Cheers mick.

this involves putting on second plate of front deck, put 2 levers through this.had to lightly file slots to get levers through.and attach front bumper, to front deck via 2 screws behind levers.then add the inspection plates, with steps glued to them. Insert the side plates(the white bits) and tighten 5 screws each side to hold these in place.4 more stages to do for this pack.all fitting very well together.cheers mick.
