Just had another look at the build for this. A really nice kit. Certainly a step up from the beginners kits but not over complicated. A lot of satisfying details to fit especially around the cab area and the brake system.
Not for me just yet but not that far away.
Cheers
Toto.

The Y7 is maybe the next step after Nellie I think Paul. A lot of similarities. I'll probably start on the same kit myself. The reason I bought the Y7 was that Nellie has the built in bunker which would be a bit harder to bodge to take the loco wagon.

Both are very interesting kits and full of character.

Hi Toto,
Did you get all the extras from Jim?
Regarding Nellie vs the Y7. Despite being a cracking kit, Nellie is actually a fictitious loco in its current state because the loco that it's derived from had outside motion. Jim wanted to simplify it for people to learn loco building on and I have to say that he certainly achieved it.
Whereas the Y7 was a North Eastern Railway tank loco and a couple of them are preserved (one quite close to me at the Middleton Railway in Leeds).

Hi Toto,
You already have more loco's than any of the more established preservation heritage railways have :mutley2:
Good on you, now why haven't you bought that last Steve Beattie Class 25/3 kit that is still on ebay?:thumbs:

I think I've maxed out on Steve Beattie kits for now. :avatar:

After what I've bought of him this last while, he should be throwing it in. Now that would be impressive. Unlikely but impressive.

The lower tool in the pic is the type I mean.
Keith.

I have one of these for N-gauge and for 1:72 and 1:48 aircraft kit etches. indispensable, can't recommend them enough.
