Graham Farish Class 33 cab
« on: February 11, 2018, 10:06:34 pm »
Hi all,

I have just purchased from e bay a GF class 33 body only, in BR blue / yellow, the cab ends do not seem to fit flush? there is a tiny gap between the blue of the main body and the edges of the yellow cab end. I think it's a Poole body for my Poole chassis.

I was wondering if anybody knew how to unclip the cab end, in order to refit correctly?

It's not a big deal, hardly noticeably, but I'd like to make them fit properly if possible.

Many thanks in advance.

Graham

Just push them in - they are just a press fit, and probably after 20-30 years (which is how old this model will be) it's not uncommon for them to have shifted a little.

Cheers,
Alan

Hi there
the four pins that locate the cab on the body are often a very tight fit.
if you push them in carefully the cab should relocate correctly.
check also that the windows are properly clipped in, as they can distort the cab shape too.
