Farish Poole class 50 'Belly tank'
« on: August 03, 2018, 11:11:40 AM »
I have an otherwise complete class 50 that needs a belly tank.
I have checked with BRLines and there are none in stock and no more to come.
Is there an alternative supplier such as Shapeways?

It would have to be - as there aren't any known spares sources for these now - BR Lines haven't had them for *years*, Peter's Spares never.

Cheers,

broken clips are less of a problem with cheap availability of mini magnets to hold tank in  place - need to fit a plasticard piece in tanks to support magnet.
