Since I've been too busy to do any actual modelling for the last few weeks, and I really need to reacquaint myself with my Olympus PL1, I've dug some old models out of the cabinet to post here.
First up, is the Silver Fox Models CLASS D1/1 Hunslet 0-4-0 Dock shunter.
An attractive prototype, owing a loot of its design cues to the same firms 05 Shunter, it was high on my list to build the moment I spotted photos on the OPC published shunters book (the really old one) and realised it would be perfect for Melbridge Dock.
I eventually constructed the resin-body kit for Hornby Magazine in 2011ish and it re-appeared on the Parker's Guide bookazine. Running on a Tenshodo SPUD, it's pretty much built as supplied. A bit of extra wire for the handrails and electrical conduits, but the model shows how good, and easy to build, a resin kit is.
The biggest change I made was to drop the model down a couple of mm to bring the skirts and cowcatcher nearer the rails, but as this is just making a hole in the rectangle of Plastikard the motor bogie its on, not too difficult.
