Hi all, I have just been offered an early part built kit, up to kit 8 assembled, 9 to 11 still in box. Is there an information site that brings together the many faults and problems that are known for this model? Also has anyone a set of the drawings by Perrier/Norman Spink that they would be willing to part with for some beer tokens? thanks, john
Try reading John's (another John) build of his own loco, he's a member of the North London SME, I've seen his loco in action and can say that it runs very well, he's also a member of this forum ID is jj, I'm sure that he would answer any questions that you may have.
Note that my website describes the Modelworks version - yours may be the earlier Winson version. They are very similar, but the problems will be different and the sequence of the 18 kits is different. If you only have 11 out of 18 kits there will be a lot to make from scratch, including presumably the boiler.
Hi JJ, yes, I have been scouring your site, its huge and I am still working around it all; I am not sure of the history, parentage of the version I have been offered I have only a few photo's and description. gets hands on after the weekend. I should know a bit more then,,, I hope. if it all goes well I will be back in touch, Best, john
