Hi all I built this and the road roller in my 20s(when it was readily available) and have been looking to get it again for years (but not for the silly money it was going for) well I finally got my hands on it for reasonable money.

Look at all those lovely models they did round the side of the box.




All those models sadly no longer available (probably several others too, I remember building the Rolls Royce balloon car not pictured there) another kit I would love to build again (I've never seen that available even on ebay, so I would imagine if it came up it would be huge amounts of money)

Anyway here are the first parts to be assembled.




And a bit of priming (after loads of filling and sanding.







Oh how I wish Bandia would bring those other models back out.

I built this one many, many years ago and my (ex) wife knocked it off a book case it was standing on.
UTTERLY demolished it...Cursing

It's a great kit. Have fun.

You will love this kit if you are mechanically minded. The are good builds posted here and Tomick added a lot of pictures. You can easily connect all the shafts and it will all work!

I still have one unwrapped one the self to try again. My first one was in the late 1970's so be careful of the decals.

Lots of pics and info online. Have fun.

Hi Ken,

Happy you found this at a reasonable price.Cool Cool

I love the old steam rallies, which due to the present situation have all been cancelled. Crying Crying Crying

I remember as a young child when road repairs were done, seeing the steam driven road rollers and I used to bug the hell out of my parents by refusing to move when I wanted to watch the machines at work. Oh happy days, the smells, the vibrations through the floor. Bring back the good old days with these wonderful machines and steam trains thundering through the local station in east London.

I`m lucky to live very close to the Great Central Railway so still get to hear those whistles and if I take a short walk get to see the locos running.Love

Will be following your build with interest and a tear in my eye.Blushing


You`ve made a good start. WTG


Regards

Hi all well I've tried the first 30+ yr old decal (in an unobtrusive place incase it was a disaster)it seems to be fine 



I dont remember this problem when I built there appears to have been some shrinkage, when you try to add the front of the boiler it splits the joint so I had to add a shim to stop it.



All seems to fit ok now.





Yes theres nothing like the smell of steam engines.

Progressing well Ken.

Cool Cool Cool

This is already looking like it will be a nice finished size. What is the length of the completed build?

More work done on this one, I dont want it too shiny as they just weren't (all that heat oil grease and smoke) plus they didn't have 2 pack paint back then (in fact I think most of them were hand painted with a brush) a lot of the pipework is moulded into the body of the kit, I intend to replace that with actual pipework.







Dont know the finished size yet as no wheels on will let you know then.

More work done on this (done some weathering on the engine block) started on the water tank, Im glad the 30+ yr old decals seem to be behaving themselves, got some oil staining to do to the engine block im thinking of trying to scratch build the speed regulator (that may be a little ambitious) the kit one just niggles me, we will have to see how difficult that is, I may still end up using the kit supplied one.

I must say I don't remember the kit being so blooming awkward the first time I built it (then again Id never heard of filling or sanding bits for a better fit in those days)

I'm sure the fit was better then as I didn't have the patience I have now with warped parts, I think if I was struggling then as I am now it would have been bin fodder, strangely, though I'm finding that slightly better as I end up thinking "hey I got that looking ok"( despite the effort it took)

Well my missus looked at me like id grown a second head when I bought these in the cheap shop.



I said "what, I can see them being useful in modeling" she said "well if you start wearing my underwear we are getting a divorce"

Heres the first use I've found for them.

This is the regulator the kit supplies 




It needs painting but I'm sure you'll agree a big improvement
