Re: Birmingham New Street and Brettell Road in P4

Re: Birmingham New Street and Brettell Road in P4

So back to the Bachmann compound then. http://www.p4newstreet.com/wp-content/uploads/compound-body-mods.jpg The body  looks pretty much spot on to me and the firebox Bachmann had modeled suits the loco I have chosen to do. 40925 was a late survivor and based at Bournville so that's local enough  for...

Re: Birmingham New Street and Brettell Road in P4

http://www.p4newstreet.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/09/shunters-compared.jpg One thing that's always bugged me a little about the above image is the coupling rods on the class 11 (left). I cant remember why but I used the Brassmasters standard rods rather than their finescale ones. Well I finally go...

Re: 00 scale lorries

Been busy knocking up a few more trailers. http://www.p4newstreet.com/wp-content/uploads/mercedes-trailer.jpg Starting with this offering from Knightwing. Although the cabs they supply are to a slightly larger scale the trailers, or at least this one, is pretty much spot on for 4mm scale. I changed ...

Re: Birmingham New Street and Brettell Road in P4

I found a relatively cheap Bachmann Compound recently and thoughts have turned to what to do with it. Lets start with a little disclaimer. Alan Gibson supplies a set of wheels to convert this loco to P4 and I would have every confidence that just swapping the wheels would get a p4 steam loco up and ...

This is my entry will it do? :D

Next: Something else?


I’m discounting that because the loco has 12 wheels and the tender 6 so 18 in total. :twisted: :twisted:

This has ten though!
