Evening All


Right, as I love coverting and bashing rtr locos into ones not produced, I keep stumbling across the lack of tender tanks to use, I mean the current china Hornby variants. And whilst on my current P2 progect, I hit a same problem again


I have managed to accuire a w/m kit tender, and this got me thinking, is there a market for resin cast tender tops out there? I was bidding for a Hornby one on ebay, but it went for well over £50 by the time you added p&p


So after a little noodle scratching, I have come up with a plan


1. See if there is a market/need for them

2. Learn how to cast/model in resin

3. Sell them


So heres part one of the plan, is there a need/want for them? (Thats me asking you guys), I have already a few people interested, so if I can get to 6 provisional orders, I will go ahead with this idea


First tender offering is a non corridor variant, with additional parts to make a streamlined variant included

It will be made to fit onto the already widely available current Hornby chassis (from the likes of Peters Spares & Abbiegales), and will need handrails adding (not supplied) and painting into your choice of livery (again not by me)

If enough demand, I will then re-tool and make a corridor variant, again with additional parts to make a streamlined variant included


Hope this makes sense, I dont want to turn this into a business, just make enough to cover costs and a few pennies to fund my addiction of bashing


Thanks for reading
