I am tryimg to find 1/76 scale (OO) JCB, low loader or similar to load loco tenders with coal as per real Weybourne.
I know Airfix/Dapol do a JCB type kit but I'm not impressed by them!
Has any member seen or have a link to another make either RtR or a kit please??

Many thanks
Ron

Hi Ron,

I have a few tracked excavators and a rubber duck from carorama if my memory serves me right. They do JCB's but two things .......one....they are quite modern versions and secondly they are 1 / 87 th scale. I would suggest a good starting point to search would be Langley models though. You may get something more suitable there in kit form.

I've been looking for a piling rig but can't get one anywhere near the right scale. They are all I / 50 scale.

I'll keep my eyes open.

Cheers

Toto

Hi Ron,

How about this one: http://www.mywebsitespace.co.uk/Vehicles_construction.html

It may be a tad modern, so there are theses as well: http://www.scalefarm.com/_man-jcb_jcb_farm_and_construction_machinery.htm

Hope they're of interest,

Bill :)

Hi Ron,

It's the carorama version on your link that I've got. They are alright. I note there is a tracked excavator at 1/76th scale at the top of the page though if you want to keep the scale.

I must curb the enthusiasm and look carefully at the scale, as the 'pretty good' one is alas no good. I suspect the Dapol kit will need a lot of work to look right, so fingers crossed at the Great Central.

Cheers Ron,

Bill :)

Hi Ron,
Try Langley Models OO machinery kits, there should be Fordson low loader from the 1950's.

Hi Nigel, I'm modelling a preserved, preset day railway, at the real Weybourne they are using a bright yellow Volvo low-loader to fill the tenders so looking for something similar?
Going to a show tomorrow to check some out I hope!

Thanks
Ron

Try looking in Toys R Us or similar. They normally have some kids playpack which contain a JCB or similar. Probably be a darn sight cheaper than the Langley model. The scale might not be perfect but probably close enough.

Is 1/72 close enough? Should be possible to either use one of these as is, or maybe a hack and/or repaint job
