An early stage build of a BR Standard Class 5 using Jim Vass' drawings and castings. The project has been through two sets of hands, and includes work varying in standard from pedestrian to very good.
Work to date comprises:
Set of locomotive frames erected with buffer beams, stretchers, horns and steam brake cylinder
Set of tender frames erected complete with buffer beams and horns.
Set of machined cast iron locomotive axle boxes
Set of machined tender axle boxes
Complete front bogie
Pair of machined coupling rods
Pair of professionally-machined cylinder assemblies by P.T.Machining, complete with pistons, piston valves, rods, glands, relief valves
Set of machined tender wheels and axles
Set of machined driving wheels and axles - the main bores of these are poorly done, they really want boring out and bushing before broaching for a proper square key with axles machined to suit
Complete flanged copper boiler kit, including all tube, material, flanged plates and rivets to complete - this was bought new last year, the crate is just liftable by two people.
Quantity of castings including dome, chimney, steam tee etc
Large quantity of drawings
