Heljan Class 52 Western

Postby woodys100 » Sat Sep 24, 2016 8:17 am

Hello,
Does anyone know how to remove the cab housings, black plastic units, from inside the body shell as I want to fit cab lights. I'm wary of damaging the shell and indicator light units.
Thanks..

They are mostly a force-fit, with a couple of small tags that clip into the sides of the glazing. Sometimes Heljan used a little glue at the top as well, but usually this is easy enough to cut or break away.

You will need to spread the cab sides and ease the cab unit downwards and backwards. The indicator lights are incorporated into the chassis fronts, so there should be no problems with moving the cab interior.
