I have sold my big Rail King beasty thing so the funds will cover this. I'll post up when it arrives.
cheers
Toto

:scratchchin: need to get my ears checked, I could have sworn I heard someone say I won't be buying any more loco's for a while as I have nowhere to put them and plenty of kits to build - maybe it was another life :facepalm:  :mutley2:

:whatever:

Very nice Chris,
I think mine has the brass body though. The one piece resin will take a lot of work out of the equation. :thumbs:

I like the idea of instructions on a CD, makes more sense than crusty yellowing bits of A4. All you need now is a bit of soldering practice and you're away! I did see on the latest issue of the MERG quarterly mag that one of the Scottish groups (I think) had run a successful soldering course (Paul may have seen it too) but I imagine it would have been electronics soldering rather than what you were looking for, Toto, but having said that, the principle is the same really, just on a bigger scale.

That’s a much later and updated kit to my one looks like you will be soldering way for a while with this one.

I’ll just get the file out clean up a few bits pre drill for the add on bits and prime the body, paint blue all done :giggle::giggle::giggle: not quite that easy

That looks a very comprehensive kit Toto, I wouldn't start on it until you've cut your teeth on a couple of Big Jims loco kits mate, but it will make a very interesting build demo.

Pete.

Hi Pete,

No worries, I'm not that brave. I have been doing a little delving into Delrin drive systems. Any experience of these ? I've seen them used on a number of O Gauge loco's and wondering what the pros and cons are over normal drive systems.

Cheers

Toto

The Delrin drive system makes a very cost effective solution to all axle drive, you only need one worm and gear for each bogie.

Pete.
