A loco type I've always wanted to build is a 9F and an impulse purchase at Guildex after a conversation with Jeff Ennis on the Scorpio stand had got one, so the dosh was exchanged and a promise to forward me some items that hadn't been packed was made, true to word Jeff sent forward the neccessary pieces about a week later. I hadn't planned to build this kit but the torrential rainfall, cold wind and a workshop refit in progress helped confirm the decision so out came the Xurcon snips and Part 1 and 2 were cut from their frets to be cleaned up. So the 9F kit comes with a BR1C tender which puts the range of loco numbers allocated to that type of tender as being 92015-19, 92045-92059, 92077-92086, 92100-92139, 92150-92164, however some locos in the early 920XX range were fitted with air compressors to work the discharge doors on the Tyne Dock Consett ore trains, so those were out with this kit. I wanted to model a Crewe built example allocated to the London Midland Region so that set the number range at either 92100-92139 and 92150-92164, now looking a photos for detailing I've studied 92136 and 92162... great and I saw 92134 at Barry so it becomes a matter of personal choice really. So I put the main frames together and in true Scorpio Seven Models fashion these frames go together with a minimum of jigging to make a straight and balanced unit, I chose the double beam axle compensation arrangement as opposed to a rigid frame. Here is the compensation arrangement with the first driving wheelset fixed, there are three laminations which affix onto a spring outline set on the frames which make each spring representation four layers... a bit of a long process with five axles to process.
