Julia, I have to say that is really inspirational; at various times when it wasn't going that well, just knowing you had built that loco kept me trying. It's also nice to know that the chassis took several attempts!, makes me feel a bit better about my sorry attempts!

Quick update.

The Farish LMS Black 5 display bogie wheels are correct for the ponies.  I will have to blacken the brass and pickups but it all aligns nicely (allowing for the lens distortion and perspective  :D)

I should get the 42xx kit from Worsley in the next few days and then I can get on with the second chassis steam gear.

With the larger pony wheels front and back the chassis is much more stable.

Bit of a pause while I wait for the 42xx kit from Worsley so I can build the 42xx and 72xx at the same time.

In the interim I have been tuning my new P2 Co-ck of the North from Derek Rutherford.

Enjoy

I put this video up as the four coupled wheelbase of the P2 has the same difficulties as the 42xx and the 72xx.  Very fiddly to adjust and then it just suddenly runs smoothly  :D

Anyway Alan says my 42xx kit is in the post so I should get back to the build in a few days.

Nice work work snowwolflair, don't have much done, what I do have will post soon, just recovering from work, did about 2000km driving in 4 days. Just to say had a lot of problems with Dapol chassis, finally sorted it substituting the pins for 12BA bolts, hope to start on another chassis though, this one will be brass though, with drop in wheel sets - photos to follow when i have had a lay down! ( It hasn't helped we have hyad two bank holidays this week in Spain, and every man and his donkey were on the roads)

That's a lot of Km, glad I put that part of my career behind me.

A thought   If the 12BA bolt threads need to be smoothed then as the mechanism is running put a drop of Brasso on the bearings.  You will need to wash it out later with oil but the abrasive polishing effect works very well.  It is a tip I was given by a 2mm modeler who smooths his gearboxes this way.

ooops they are 14Ba, not 12Ba, 12Ba would be a bit overscale.

I'm lovely the work on those chassis, this is right up my street!

Derek's P2 is lovely although somewhat ungainly around those tight curves (nothing to do with the build quality)!

Yes, I agree but it does go round these curves with a full set of flanges which I never thought it would. 

I had it running with some Society BG and Dapol Gresleys in Teak and it looks fabulous.

The 42xx etches arrived yesterday and I have now fitted the wheel linkage on the 42xx chassis.

The nice thing about duplicating is where as the first one took four days the second one took two hours to get running and tuned.

Now to look at the rest of the kit.

Hi Snowwolflair thanks for the tip about using Brasso, will be trying it out. Some more Pics of my progress.

The start of the chassis build with 14Ba bolts


Another view with 2 sets soldered and cut down


A problem with the motor mount/ weight is it is too big to fit in the body as it is, so i cut it down, you can trim the body back also, but will end up with very little material around the valence


Cut down motor mount, also ground some material off around the wheel arches, these wheels are slightly larger


Trial fit


Cylinders all soldered up, mounted on styrene, as the wheels are tapped to 14Ba with the bolts fitted for crank pins, each connecting rod is either positive or negative, and all brass will create a short


Getting there!


And this the remains of chassis mk1, but i hope to turn it into chassis mk3, with farish wheels and 16Ba crank pins, time will tell
