The choice of prototype was largely determined by the availability of a suitable kit for a British industrial locomotive in 3.5mm:1ft scale. Judith Edge have reduced a number of their products to the (slightly) smaller scale and so win the sale.
Out of the flatish box (no chance of putting the finished model in here) come a couple of etches for the parts and some resin bits for the bulkier items. A bag of bearings, screws and other bits plus some pages of instructions finish package.
To this I've added wheels: Gibson as they were the nearest suitable ones, and yes I've bought 3 axles in case I bugger one up, plus a motor and gearbox.
This is the second Edge kit I've built, the first being a BR 06 Diesel - this went together OK so I'm hopeful that this isn't going to be too difficult. But then I've said that before - watch this space !
