Bull taken by horns, Farish N class to N1 class hack has commenced, buffer beam sawn off, ditto front step of footplate, slope filed at top of cylinders; found a tall buffer beam on the remains of a body in the "might come in handy one day" box. Sawed that off as well, bit of filing and fettling to make it fit; taking a break for grub. Might even take some piccies after grub before assembly starts.

I've had another idea for a hack of an N, the W class 2-6-4T

http://www.semgonline.com/steam/wclass_1.html

Same front end mod as for the N1, but add side tanks, full cab and bunker and a rear bogie (and those ginormous steps!)

Methinks I may try and get to TINGS this year and see if the Farish stand has any returns.

"Hello Houston, we have a problem"

Any suggestions for keeping all the holes lined up when replacing the pony truck, 4 of 'em, - threaded hole in chassis, spring , pony truck and washer, and then getting that micro screw through said holes and done up?

I've already lost the washer and made a new one from a bit of nickel silver off the edge of a kit etch.

Apart from that it's all done except for applying lining transfers (or fine liner ink marker) to the cylinders and front steps once the paint dries.

Having managed to loose the screw as well, I found it will take a 12BA,  superglued washer and screwdriver, sorted.

Threw some transfers on (looks like I need to do one cylinder again, somewhat "Brahms and Liszt"

Herewith some quick progress pics, as much for me to take note of faults to be corrected.


both together


N


N again, hand holds in the deflector need changing, this was a cut down Schools one.



N1 with drunken cylinder lining (good job I hadn't varnished it yet!)


N1 again, looks like the deflectors need a bit of dekinking and hand holds making, also need a vac pipe.

I'm surprised the cabside numberplate shows as much detail, well done Farish.
