Anybody have experience with building the Langleys LMS (Ex L&Y) STEAM RAILMOTOR BODY KIT?

Is this kit suitable for a novice modeller?

Yes and No.  Mind you I had a bash at one as a novice modeller and never got it beyond an inital priming stage to see where I went wrong.  I wouldn't go there again - and now I have about 15 years more experience.

Hi Boris,

I guess it was a case of not knowing how to build whitemetal kits.  It was one of the first I had a go at and while parts of it went quite well (the vents on the roof for example) other parts were a poor fit and I didn't take the time.  I have seen other builds and they have been satisfactory but I haven't revisited mine.

I have built quite a number of other kits, these days brass and nickle silver.  Have a look around my blog found here: www.sithlordsrailwayblog.blogspot.com

 ;D  Thanks Sithlord.  The blog is interesting and I will explore it more in the future, but now I have to get back to the babysitting.

Cheers

Boris

YAHOO - :smiley-laughing: Now just got to hope that the gentleman in the red suit brings me LANGLEYS LMS (Ex L&Y) STEAM RAILMOTOR BODY KIT on December 25th.
At the recent NGauge Society s/h shop open weekend I found an old Lifelike GP40 which is the 1st choice for the kit. 
GP40 body falling apart, but the chassis is sound and runs well.
