Remastered chassis for the Brighton 5 plank opens.

By m1ker, Oct 25 2017 06:26PM

Earlier this summer I needed to make a fresh mould for the two 4mm LBSCR 5 plank open waggons that I offer. On close inspection of the master I realised that and I misquote Peter Sellars here 'time had passed it by and so should I'. So I returned once more to my modelling bench and here is the result.


The new chassis are cast in a tough load bearing resin, that needs no axle bushes for a free running, long life; a little fine lead shot is now added to the resin before vacuuming for a little more weight and the brake levers and brake rods and shoes are separate castings. The body is in our new and stronger white resin, which is a joy to work. As usual the kit is complete with wheel sets and couplings and good clear illustrated instructions, infact all you need except for glue, paint and transfers to make the model.


Have fun Mike R.
