Time to build something new for the garden. This IP Engineering "Dotti" 0-4-0 kit has been kicking around for months in my "pending" pile. It's a discontinued model that I bought for bargain price so I can't really do a magazine build on it, but that's good news for blog readers.
Unlike most of the IP range, the kit parts are cut from plastic sheet rather than wood. Whitemetal details are included plus bolt heads from Cambrian. Motor, wheels and gears are also in the pack. The model will be battery powered using a couple of AAA cells. Control isn't sophisticated - on/off and forward/reverse initially but in the future I'd like to have a look at this.
At present, this kit is still available from the Vale of Rheidol eBay shop.
