paper might get distorted or wrinkled, i think it might be best to paint them on rather than stick them on :wink:

Re: Airfix 4f, running nightmare!

Further investigation, seems to show that the wheel wobble is actually causing the rear wheel on the left side, to lift off the track slightly. This seems to be causing the loco to lose electrical contact on points, and slightly uneven sections of track. if track is uneven, as my one was, have you ...

Re: Airfix 4f, running nightmare!

i have problems with locos with motors in back too. i had a black LMS hornby loco and right from the start it was all jerky and horrible. i still maintain that any designer who puts the moter in the tender was drunk :mrgreen:
