Dapol coach in Hornby Magazine
Inside you'll find my latest "Parkers Guide" where I've taken a Dapol CKD coach, built it, and for good measure, improved it quite a bit as well.
There's nothing really wrong with the coach as it arrives. The price is especially good but compared to more expensive modern RTR, it's a bit lacking. Not to worry, some messing around under the floor plus a few handles and it looks the business.
Elsewhere you'll find Dr Phil answering all your most intimate railway modelling problems in the clinic. Headcode, window repair, wasp stripes and cutting pipes - I truly am a renaisance man.
Finally we get to staff projects with the introduction of Topley Dale, the latest HM layout. Needless to say, Mike writes stuff and I get my hands dirty with some clay based tunnel mouth bodgery.
