has anyone gone beyond removing the body unit from footplate on the Hornby 08?

I want to respray one and was trying to avoid masking up the windows, especially the two half open ones.

Interesting construction around the cab - looks like it may be joined somehow to the main body; the cab detail seems like an insert from below.

Problem is - mine's s/hand and may have been subject to the glue treatment

interesting though .................. so, has anybody gone inside?

One other thing - I've never handled a Bachmann 08 - would they be easier to disassemble in order to respray?

best

Answering the last one first: the Bachmann cab should come off fairly easily as it slides upwards off the bonnet and floor mouldings. There may be a small amount of glue holding it but on my example this was easily broken without damaging the cab mouldings or the bonnet.

As for the Hornby one, I am about to find out since I have just won a Freightliner version from eBay at a very reasonable price because it has one cabside window missing. I am quite capable of replacing said window but I am hoping the cab interiorwill be easily accessible, rather than having to mount the new glazing from the outside.

It can be done but it's a pain cuz Hornby glues the cab to the body. :0(

Tha glazing on my hornby fell in to the cab . i did try to get the cab separated from the rest of the body .I rang hornby about it . They said if its fixed its fixed.  Glued in i suppose but a very tight fit to boot..My 08 now runs without glazing :twisted:  but at least its in one piece.  As an aside i did manage to fit a bachmann 533 decoder ,after trimming the excess plastic from the ends of the chip.  Runs ok.
