I'm not sure this could truly be termed a "Plank" more like a "Stick" really in view of its short size. Right for the benefit of all new and recently joined members this is what this thread is about, basically Platform 1 is going to present the Llangollen Diesel Group with a display model of D5310 as a way of creating shall we say a cultural exchange opportunity. The loco we will present to Llangollen is the prototype model of BRCW Type 2 Sulzer locomotive D5310 as designed by Steve Beattie and being built by myself, the loco will be finished in BR green livery and will sit in a display case with simple scenic ground cover. The size of the case is 11" x 22" as this seems a good enough size that doesn't cramp the loco, bearing in mind of course the Diesel group are limited for space on their station display. Negotiations for this are being driven by Andy Sollis who is the contact with the full size loco owner and Toto because this is the forerunner and test build for the new Highlander Models Class 26 and Class 27 kit range currently under development. So here are some pics of the styrene profile I glued onto an 8mm ply base, to give some idea of how this will work I place a Toad brake van to give a perspective. The loco will sit on a slight embankment with a shallow cutting behind.
