Streamliner, send me a PM with your email address, and i'll send you a set of instructions on how to modify the chassis.
A Prototype i have been working on, Pretty crude so far, but first attempt. Needs Windows, Power and couplersThese look really cool. With a few small enhancements they will do the job.
I too am a happy customer of DCS Solutions, I put a call into Dan on Saturday for some LED's for this project, and promptly had a knock at the door with the goods that afternoon - can't complain about that!
The 520 project is now nearing completion..
Nicely done - that's a fine job. What are you using for couplers?Hi all,
Here's my first attempt at loco building in HOn3 1/2 scale. It's a Tasmanian Government Railways V class. The model started out as a Worsley Works BR 04 class in 3mm scale. I approached Allen Doherty to see if he could rescale it to 3.5mm scale and incorporate some mods to better represent the Tasmanian loco. He agreed, and a few years after receiving the etch the results are below. It runs on a Hollywood Foundry Bullant mechanism
Nicely done - that's a fine job. What are you using for couplers?G’day DuttonBay,
If I had my way though I’d have fitted #58 Kadees – not because they are accurate for the V class, but because one day this is meant to run on an operating layout.During my planning of an On30, and later 1/35 scale layout (neither of which came to fruition) I was faced with similar problems. The prototype used link & pin. Kadees were an obvious solution (#5 rather than #58 due to the scale I was using) but I was prepared to experiment with various English options, which although they don't necessarily look like the prototype, can be quite small and unobtrusive. And after all, a Kadee looks nothing like a link & pin (not a screw coupling for that matter).
