Below is a picture of a Chivers Fine Line 14ft caboose Kit, these are excellent models that go together perfectly and the cab doesn't have to be glued down it just simply clips on and off.
The tanker is a HO gauge plastic kit (Forgot the name of manufacturer) I just simply took off the tank via screws in the bogies, laid a strip of bass wood onto the chassis (scribed the wood first) made the ends out of bass wood strip, same with the under frame. Added Kadee couplings (straight swap) then refitted the tank.

Painted the wood work of the 2-6-0 loco and tanker wagon with Acrylic Burnt Amber and diluted with Tamiya thinners (Alcohol)Will up load pic soon.:)

Wow.
Pick these up at my club last night and going to convert over the Christmas period. :bg:




Some paint added to the 4-6-0 conversion.

Full rake of tankers in line on the passing loop waiting for passenger train or a shay pulled log train to by pass.


Hmm can't wait for the station, water tower and hill side.

Hi all

New up date, below are some pics of what i've been up to over the evenings of the christmas period.

Not much on the modeling but the baseboards are comming along nicely, this is were most of my time and effort has been put into, sorry no pics of these yet but I shall take some soon and post them and will explain the build of them at a later date. (The ones in the pics are for my EM gauge layout).

Below my first tanker coversion now stained and ready for some red oxid on the ends and side frame, plus detals.


Below is the start of my rake of three tankers to be converted, the tanker was taken apart the steps on the main chassis removed and small rivet deatail removed too, and thats it.

The Base wood was cut to the same length as the chassis and was cut to 1.5 inches wide (6ft width).

The Basswood was then scribbed using a blunt swan morton blade and the center for these type of tankers had to be cut out for the tank to set into to refit back on to the chassis. (this looked better that being placed directly on top of the Basswood.

Under side view, this is not prototipilcal but you cant see the under side when on the layout so was not worried about it..

Been called by the wife so I will have to finnish later.:bang:

Back again.

Trial fit of the tanker, small amount of shaving requires at the ends.


Nice snug fit, no day light gaps.



Just simply cut stips of basswood to length and glued on. Oh please not all this has been glue with 15second rocket glue, this is great stuff as it give you a small amount of time to adjust and then its stuck no waiting around for the glue to dry.



Finnished just requires painting and some details to be added.

Hi Daniel

I hear Swanley was part hit by storm 'blackout'...
...power was off here right through Christmas; 50 HOURS !!...
...Oh well.

Tanks are lookin' good !
Are you considering scale nail-holes & bird-poop ?
(just kiddin' ... ( or am I ! ))

Cheers

Si.

One comment...
...the end-beams should be thicker; i.e. squareish timbers.

Cheers herb, glad you like them.

Hi Si, yeah we got it bad, but not as bad as the west country.

Yes I think your right and going to replace the end beams with bigger timber, plus add nail holes. I want the black tanker to look like its sat for a will under trees so want lichens (spelling) to look like its growing on the top, plus bird s##t.

Cheers Dan

Thought I would show a small photo shoot of my Bachmann H0 conversion.

With an old cast tanker type tender, sorry don't nowhat there called.

Front view, added a cow catcher from bandit models. This is for the large 4-6-0 so cut it down to size. Just found out that they do one for the 4-4-0 which would have fitted perfectly.

Started working on the tender but not convinced of it looks behind this loco. Brought another one of these from the Bachmann spectrum range which is longer, better looking, plus plugs directly into this loco and holds the sound card. but was still not to happy with it.




So built this tender instead from styrene sheet and a bogie that cost me 20p:bg: Much better.

P.S stripped the acrylic paint back. stuff didn't take, was being lazy and didn't prime first (prefer enamels).

Below is my Bachmann porter, This is fitted with a tsunami sound chip and has a 108:1 gear box fitted. The tender has a bogie brought for 30p and added pick ups, The Bed plate belt from styrene and the tender is a Bachmann Shay tender that was cut down in width, new white metal head light and was weathered by my self to. Sorry for the stripped down picture of the loco, super glue got drawn into the gear box and locked up :doh: . Now under going a gear box change.
