I couldn’t resist!

In last night’s blog post, I said work on my Panniers would commence in the beginning of next Month. After I posted this, I felt this was an excuse and I was just putting off working with the scalpel.

So last night, I sat down at the workbench with my practice body (Replica 57XX) and made a start removing moulded detail. I’m really pleased with the results, and I would be certainly happy with these results on one of my Bachmann Models.

Tonight I removed the sandbox covers, I will be doing this on my Bachmann Panniers as the covers are too far forward, and will mean the RT sand linkage will be able to reach the covers, a tip from Alan Buttler.

What has surprised me is how easy this work was, granted using such a sharp scalpel blade requires care, however due to this, it did make the cutting relatively simple. It’s also interesting comparing the Bachmann and Mainline Bodies….there is a lot of similarities between the two and makes me wonder how much is basically the same.

No excuses getting on with the first 8750 now(which will be 4643).

  1. “two far forward” – Freudian slip? lol. Great work. Between you and I, I’ve fancied a holiday layout for a long time: red soil and exquisite scenery – I would do a branch in EM or even P4 GWR… ‘Probly just a dream.
