Is the body resin? as per previous posts cleaned with abit of cif, phoenix precision primer, airbrushed very few passes until you get the coat built up.

experience from taylors 26's and 60's is that it can be very hit and miss, but 1st few coats are critical, might not look like you are putting anything on but good to start slowly.

Hi Guys

Always used oven cleaner for cleaning anything as it leaves no residue - just rinse in water afterwards - washing up liquid leaves a residue (keeps your ceramics/glass looking nice).

Waiting for the RTR version? - why not try a kit?

Re: 3D Class 92 - now available

Hi Guys,

Finally - its all here and available. Only taken 18 months!

Kit consist is...
Resin shell profesionally moulded by CMA Moldform Limited from a 16 micron master.
FUD battery box with recess for etched serial numbered ID plate.
FUD insulators, buffer beam and 3rd rail pickups.
Stainless etch for windscreen, side windows and grills.
This suits farish pantos but dapol ones can be used (the longer arm touches the box just behind the panto well)

Most question will have already been answered in the thread - somewhere! Make sure you have a good read and understand the chassis mod required - its not too bad but the screws are tiny. If your up for changing the diodes to get the shell right down mention this as I have some slimmer ones - will require good soldering skills to change these - but only required if you want to keep the lighting function of the PCB.

To follow are cab inserts for those who dont want to recycle the class 60 interior. I'll post some CADS of this later plus more photos.

You will need a class 60 chassis, pantos, paint, window material, and modelling skill to finish this. Its not RTR and will require cleaning and preparation prior to painting to get the best finish. Lighting is entirely upto you - the area behind the lights has been kept clear and the cab insert will keep the area clear.

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

So far Iv got etches for 30, and 50 resin shells BUT will do more if required.

46 inc UKpost. (Chris has given permission for this to be advertised here)
(for overseas it will be fully recorded delivery at cost or have it shipped to a friend in the UK for onward shipment etc)

Regards
Russ

Hi Russ

That looks great!   Good value too...

A couple of questions:

1)  Does the cab windscreen glazing require separate panels to fit across the moulded centre pillar, or a single strip as in the TPM Class 60 kit?

2)  How do I order??

cheers

Ben A.

Hi Russ,

Great news and, as Ben says, how can we order them?

I would also be interested in the replacement diodes as well please.

Cheers,

Mark

Congrats on the result guys, impressive.

Way beyond my skills at the moment, but I will try to be good enough one day to do this justice  :thumbsup:
