Locomotive Modelling from Scratch & Etched Kits Part 2


A very user-friendly, straightforward and encouraging book in which the author guides the reader through the techniques necessary for loco building, covering the two disciplines of kit- and scratch-building As he doesn't feel there has been any appreciable difference in his approach from modelling in 4mm to 7mm and 10mm scales, the book should prove useful to everyone, but 7mm is the focus throughout these pages. Ingeniously, Geoff has supported his text with a pair of signature models whereby he tackles two engines of the same class, one scratchbuilt and the other kitbuilt, in order that the differing processes can be seen in direct comparison. This second volume contains chapters covering running plate, valance and splashers, loco boilers, cabs, sundry details, tenders, traction supply, the basic lathe and its operation, and testing.
