Hi Alistair

As soon as we've got the price in for the etch, got the last orders away for shapeways (batt box, buffer beams, roof insulators and 3rd rail pickups) then I can begin to work it out.

Good news is that the resin captured every detail (even door handles!) but as the master was printed the resins need sanding as you can feel the layers - the good news is that as its resin it can be sanded easily.

Hope you've got you class 60 donor ready - you can do the chop to lower the pcb while we sort out the above - remove the PCB - remove the lugs that hold the pcb up from the chassis block, line the area under the pcb with insulation tape, refit the pcb, cutting down the screw as required as its blind holes in the chassis. (now this is a fiddly job). I know its not easy but we needed every last mil of space for the roof well.

Complete list of bits you'll need to acquire...(pinched from earlier in the thread)

Farish 60 chassis (need to lower the main pcb) and remove (or modify) the lighting units.
2x Standard farish pantographs - see Bob at brlines or Dapol pantos - see DCC supplies.
Horns (Must ask bernard if he stil has these)
Some representation of the roof wiring.
Glazing material of your choice
Wire for handrail (might be able to supply that)
Paint and decals (John at precision decals can supply)

Regards
Russ

I can feel an order coming to you Bernard! Hopefully can do some ATM bogies and wheels if it is possible?

Chassis already brought, just got to start modifying it.

Will be getting paint from Warley or maybe Hornby GETS. decals are ordered too! Hopefully it will be done ready and painted in time for Stafford in February.

Hi Njee20

Its looking around 40 so far.

For the etch - We need a bit of help with...
1) the size of channel tunnel portal rings and any decent images that will help with the design
2) the sizing of the cast br cab side arrows.

And heres where all the insulators go....

Hi Russ,

Standard large nickel silver BR arrows and tunnel rounders are already in the BHE range, so perhaps a message to Andrew Evans might help.

Alternatively, when I return, I'll tale a look at my 3TG CJM 92..

Regards,
Stu in OAKN.

Awesome! I should probably budget for 3, so I can screw up painting on two of them!

The rings are a registered trademark so you will also need permission in many cases. Another reason to use the BHE ones!

Received my kit of parts. Looks really good and quite detailed.

Going to have a look at starting this weekend if I get the chance.

Hi Guys

Ages ago you wanted a look at a painted example...so, here's an earlier one painted by MK1(thanks buddy)...(this version doesn't use etches)

(Sorry, but you are not allowed to access the gallery)

(Sorry, but you are not allowed to access the gallery)

Thats got name decals from precision decals.

Resin shells are ready, Insulators, buffer beams and battery boxes are here.
Etches are being revised to correct a minor height issue with the side grills.

Getting very close now and hopefully we'll have another painted example from Alistair soon.

Regards
Russ

Hi Russell,
Hoping to get it started today.

Slight issues with my dad having to go in to hospital messing up my modelling time.

So inconsiderate of him!
