Help finding a B4

Postby Cypher VII » Sun Mar 24, 2013 1:18 pm

Evening gents.

I'm after a B4 kit, I am rather desperate to get my hands on one as they are my favorite small southern tank and Nine elms had an allocation of them, I've done some searching but with no results, If someone could point me in the right direction, that'd be fantastic!

Ahh yes, sorry, O gauge, 7mm. I know there are gauge 1 RTR versions and 4mm kit versions.... now for that missing link?

An 0 gauge whitemetal kit of a B4 was available, don't know if it still is, from a company called 'ABS Zero Zephyr', part of a group of small model railway businesses owned by a certain person called Adrian Swain who's address is 39 Napier Road, Poole, Dorset. BH15 4LX. Might be worth getting in touch, Adrian is a very amicable chap.

ABS Zero Zephyrs ceased trading in 2011, and as a result no-one makes a B4 now. So your best bet is a ready built one or a kit on eBay.

It's almost like it was meant to be! :P
