Do like a Deeley..
So do I...here's one I made a lot earlier Gallery
I have just been reading the thread about the NW group, and thought I would pop a picture here for those on this side of the pennines showing some progress on my S7 layout....
It has grown somewhat since the last time I shared any pictures.
Did the Deeley start life as a ABS kit? I have an unstarted one in the box of kits that I have never got round to building.
I did not build it, but do have the box. I'll take a look and let you know.
The one I built was a Zero Zepher kit from Adrian Swain, went together fairly well, although I bashed it for S7
That is the one that I have. Any tips on the conversion? I'm presuming that most of the work will be in the chassis making sure that the valve gear doesn't foul the wheels? I have an Agenoria TVR 0-4-0ST which will need the same treatment.
I pulled the chassis out to 29- 29.5 mm ( not to sure as it was a few years ago ) with new spacers and milled the back off of the cast white metal cylinders, as they are made over width to compensate for the Fudge Scale narrow chassis.
I think that was about all the major re-work, and then the usual re- profiled wheels and split axles etc.
Doesn't sound insurmountable to do. I have a half built Victory class which can be done at the same time.
@Marc Dobson my loco is an Eric Underhill kit
I think the ABS/Zero Zepha kits are the same one as the Eric Underhill one.
