Hi Guys,
Talking over in the Crew Lounge the other day I said I was considering breaking out one of my loco kits, and maybe starting a construction thread. Checking my "started but not yet finished" pile I found the beginnings of a Judith Edge Models kit of a British Railways Class 06 diesel shunter. I have decided that I shall try to comlete this it.

First, for those who don't know what a BR class 06 looked like (they're all withdrawn now) here's a couple of links to pictures.

As you can see, these were already out of use.

Here's a link to Judith Edge models. They produce kits for a number of the small diesels that were used here in the UK.

And here's some shots of where I had reached before life took over and I ground to a halt.[:-banghead]










The kit is in 4mm/ft scale and I'm building it to P4 standards. There's a brief explanation of P4 over in the Candy Mill thread in the Micro and Mini Layouts forum.

I'll keep you all posted when/if there's any progress

Tony,
This looks like an interesting project. I've always been interested in your brass loco models over in the UK, and now I'll get a chance to watch one being built.

Tony, this will be interesting to follow. (And I know what you mean when you say "when/if there's any progress." Some of my projects fall under that caveat also. [:-ashamed])

[:-jump][:-jump] Progress!! [:-jump][:-jump]

Today I got the treads on the front steps in, then built the rear steps and attached them to the footplate. I've also fixed all the nuts to the cab/engine housing baseplate, which means that the model can now be carried in one piece. [:-jump][:-jump] Photo's to follow [:-bouncy][:-bouncy]

What a great day off!! Also did some gardening. Keeps my [:-love] happy Good for relations with the neighbours too.

[:-jump2]More progress[:-jump2]

Managed to get in 90 minutes or so of modelling last night . I have now added the cab to my model. Next things are the window trims and the rivet detail strips on the cab.

And here are some photos!










This counts as amazing progress by my standards

Looks very nice to this point.
I am also glad to see that you are making progress and also posting pictures.
This type of thread is my favorite on Railroad-Line even if I never construct a brass locomotive I am watching your progress with interest.

Tony,

Nice progress. Are the walls of the cab four separate pieces or are some adjoining walls bent at 90? I guess my real question is, if you bend the brass, how do you do it?

George
