I'm currently trying to replicate a class 60 going through the super 60 overhaul process with a tpm body I received but required some attention when I got it.

I'm currently half way through trying to remove the roof so I can add plasticard to replicate the bulkheads as you can see when the roof is removed, but I'm kinda stuck at the moment because I need to work out how to cut a straight enough line right down the length of the side/roof join

Interesting thread. I've started on what I hope will be BR around 1960/5 in the Bradford area. Never been, but pictures I'very found so afar are very inspiring. Dave.

remove body

find a piece of wood that fits snuggly inside the body

get 2 steel rulers

make a sandwich - Ruler then body(+wood) then ruler. make sure the top of the ruler is on the cut line you may need a thin padding layer to protect the paintwork

gently fit sandwich into a vice and tighten

score the line with a NEW scalpel blade ( or several) and keep scoring till a cut is made

Simples!

Just joined as Tank showed me the way ! I'm building Edinburgh Waverley at the moment. Just spent 2 years in the garden with G scale and OO and I give up with the weather . .  Now I can do it every day ! Been building model railways since I was a kid and I still scratch build everything apart from the track and trains !

Hi Steve,
  Welcome. Last time I was in Edinburgh I thought Waverly would make a great layout, even if one was pushed for space the approach tracks between the two bridges would be interesting with the platforms etc. hidden under the roof. What era are you into? I hope you will have plenty of A4's.

Late 80s, early 90s Western region for me, pre privatisation. It's the era I spent many days either at Chippenham or Temple Meads. So many different locos and liveries. Although not strictly Western region I have a couple of NSE locos too.

Cheers,
Carl
