Here is my contribution to the shelf queens competition. This is a scratchbuild in 4mm 00 gauge LNER F8. I began it years ago but had trouble with the running quality, it lurched around like a drunken sailor in forward, but fine in reverse. I read somewhere that the Romford gears I was using had meshing problems, not all of them, just some, and I think mine are in that batch. Anyway I ordered some new ones from London Road Models which duly arrived and that is as far as it got. It is now some 20 years later and I'm going to give it another shot! Here's the body, made of plasticard with the boiler the center roll from a bus ticket roll. The chassis frames I thought I had made myself but re-looking at them I think I may have bought them, they have sprung hornblocks which if I remember right ran reasonably well. Any way thats the state of play at the moment. Once I get the chassis back together with the new gears I will be able to judge how things will progress. Cheers, Pete.
