5 inch gauge LMS "Duchess" chassis with tender - stock code 10064

A 5 inch gauge LMS "Duchess", assembled from a modified ModelWorks kit.

The chassis is complete with pumps and lubricators - well put together, it turns over freely without tight spots.

The tender has been assembled and painted, it's complete with brake gear and some additional detailing.

As ever, Model Engineers Laser list a veritable cornucopia of parts for Duchesses, including profiled cab parts in brass, running boards, smoke deflectors and many other odds & sods which will save an age fretsawing out bits of sheet in the shed this winter.

Eagle-eyed viewers and Duchess cognoscenti may have spotted the missing piston valve covers which didn't make it into the van on Friday - they're following on in the post.
