37 mod

I just bought a class 37/0, blue riband one.

I want to convert it to a 37/2, can you change the nose ends on them or are the moulded together?

ends come off if you need to change from split headcode to centre headcode type.

Taylor Precision Models do the various noses for the non lights version, but not sure if they will also fit the blue riband ones.

hopefully he will be back in business soon.

then it looks like if you want to keep the lights you'll need to find someone to swap ends  ;D

These are for the older Poole/China 37s without lights. The body shape is slightly different.

You could always try BR Lines and see if he has any spare 37239 bodies. They don't list Class 37 bodies in the spares section but worth a phone call/email.
