This is my first attempt at such a kit. Don't expect anything unusual here, I just followed the instructions in the kit, but substituted Fox Transfers etched numbering for the waterslide transfers provided and added some wire handrails.

Hi Ray

It looks pretty good.  What scale is it?

I couldn't open your photobucket album.

Cheers

Is the 'bow' on the bottom just a result of the pic?

I think so. All seems ok although I haven't given it too much scrutiny to be honest !

No need to apologise.  It's just hard to tell from the photos.

I was going to ask why it's higher at one end than the other - or, more importantly, can you drop it down?

Cheers.

At the moment the body is just a "press" fit on the chassis. When I am totally happy with it I will add a little dab of glue just to hold it in place. It is now packed away awaiting the building of my new layout.

Excellent.  Do you have any more stock to show us?

Not Really. I will do a post later about kitbashing a Superquick Ash Plant. May be of interest to someone!

I forgot to add some comments.

"Would you do it again"? I hear you all say!
Well, yes but not with this model which is now out of production anyway I think. The new Dapol model is much more detailed and I probably only saved about £25 - £30 pounds. (Or out of pocket if you cost my labour!)

However, money wasn't really the issue. I liked the model and wanted to try building a resin kit and to see if they were of good enough detail. This one seemed ok and has given me a degree of confidence in tackling another kit but I don't think I have the experience or necessary skills to attempt a metal kit yet.

I intend to buy a (cheapish) variable temperature soldering station sometime and then perhaps try out building a whitemetal diesel brake tended kit that I have. However, I just have too much on at the moment, so that will have to wait for many months!
