Well as folk here may know I've bought an etch Class 24 kit from our latest sponsor Steve Beattie and today it arrived in the post along with a couple of Stater's wagon kits which I find difficult to resist. I really have way too many wagons than is good for me ... well that's what SWMBO keeps telling me. Anyway I digress, so in a word Steve's kit is superb in every way, its well designed, the etch is a good thickness and most importantly the instructions are comprehensive and easy to understand, these are all the signs that go towards an enjoyable loco building experience. So the loco I have decided to reincarnate is Stoke's 5D Sulzer Type 2 number D5018 in original loco green with small yellow warning panels... I'm sure you've all seen the picture posted on here. Now I've been asked to offer a progressive account of the build so who am I to disagree with a directive from the top. Anyway here are the pictures of the contents unwrapped from out of the blue box. Firstly here's some of the body and frame etches. Now here are some of the bogie etches. Some white metal items, wire and the SKF bearing cover etches. The resin cast pieces and some 3D printed items which make up the cab interior and fuel tanks. The white metal cab roof pieces and a few other bits and bobs.
