Just started to build this Parkside Dundas kit.



It's an Ex LNER diagram 195 (according to Paul Bartlett's pictures) I had a brass fret of bits and bobs from Mainly trains for LNER clasp brake vehicles so I am using some of the bits for extra detail.


I have made some progress with it this afternoon.
First the pin point bearings are fitted.



Then the underneath "gubbins" was started on!



I have shimmed the brake blocks back in a bit with some Evergreen strip so that they come in to alignment with the 00 gauge wheelsets.
0.3mm brass wire has been fitted between the brake blocks across the underneath, I have used 0.7mm wire for the brake cross shaft and the V hangers etc from the MT etch.
There's still a lot to do yet though. I will update progress as it happens.

It looks well made, Dd.  Is the chassis plastic?  The metal wheel bearings are a nice touch. :thumbs

Thanks for the comments chaps.
I just try to add that little bit of extra especially things that are normally seen on the real thing when you look at pictures.
I do what I can, but, I'm no match for the "master" the Big Cheese Plant himself! His rolling stock is just superb!

Max,
The kit is indeed plastic. The brass bearings and wheels are included in the kit. All you need is glue, transfers, couplings of your choice and paint to complete. Plus the brass bits of course if you feel like adding extra detail

Me too, super layout, and a well constructed site.

I have a couple of Parkside vans on the 'to do' list so will be watching how you go with this one.

Thanks for your comments Jim.
I presume you mean the safety loops that pass under the cross rods between the brake blocks?
If so, I can see them in some of Paul's pictures and will be fitting them in due course.
What I am interested in and can't see from the pictures is the pull/push rod arrangements. Any ideas?

Is this any help? I have trimmed some of the saftey loops and pull rods short to allow me to remove the wheels. The final photo is the van the right way up, I still need to finish the lettering and numbering.


The vans have sprung buffers plus all the wheels are sprung too using fine 8thou guitar wire.

David,
Thanks for the pictures of your models. It's not very often you get to see the underside of these vehicles in prototype photographs.
At least I've got some idea about what I can include on my van now.

Are those "Masokits" underframes David ?  They look good but I guess you've got to know what each bit is called !!

Your Parkside kit is turning out far better than my last efforts Frank. :thumbs:thumbs

Yes the underframes on mine are Masokits, I built ten underframes yesterday for a batch of ten LNER open I have on the go. these are simple one sided morton type so not so much work as the LNER clasp, I will upload a photo later of my progress.

One thing I have found with the Masokits clasp brake underframes is that that OO wheel will not work, I have an old pair that I pop in when I spray the underframes, that I later replace with P4 wheels, due to the narrow gauge of OO the flanges hit the triangle shaped pull brake yokes.

Ah - thanks for that David !! As I'm "OO" - the apparent complexity of these underframes need not worry me therefore !!

Is this batch of LNER open's the ones you're going to do a full "how I do it" posting ?  I'm really, really looking forward to that.  Even if I can't have those superb underframes, I might at least be able to learn how to paint and weather from your build. :cheers:cheers

A little more progress on my days off last week end.
The chassis is finished, brake rods, safety hoops etc added from the Mainly Trains etch.
The body has also been assembled and the roof stuck on. I've added a fair bit of weight hidden inside and it really zings along the test track with just a slight push with my finger. The buffers are some turned steel ones I had floating about in my "odds & sods" boxes and I've replaced the moulded in grab handles with 20thou brass wire.
Here's how it stands at the moment.



Next jobs, Axle box covers,Couplings, Vac pipes and a bit of cleaning up and then off to the paint shop.

It's looking good Frank, a worthy addition to anyone's layout.

Petermac,
Yes I'm fairly happy with it. The instructions are a little bit basic and you need to think before you glue!
As it happens I have built some Parkside kits before so knew what to expect.
I forgot to add the axle box covers because the instructions are a bit scant,
I used the brass etched bits and steel buffers for extra strength as well as better detail.
I'm hoping to get on with it again this weekend and pick up some transfers from Stafford exhibition next Sunday.
