Silverfox gsv

Postby Riversuir226 » Tue Sep 03, 2013 10:38 pm

With the kids back in school time for me to get back to the bench and do a bit of work :D

Had intended to do the IE weedspray coach but finally decided after looking at old photos of the Cork to Cobh train to do a gsv for the second rake of cravens. The weedsprayer will be done soon though :D .
After ditching the instructions, i dusted off one that i previously built and took the measurements of that and marked off points for the trusses on the chassis &the proceeded to build the truss.

After a stiff drink, i started adding the fuel tank sides and various other bits and pieces. The buffers on the mouldings were terrible so i replaced them with ones from the spares box, along with pipes and a coupling.

Looks good Tom, Looking closely at this as I need to detail mine a bit more!! love the pipes and the coupling. You may need to pull the camera back a wee bit to get the detail in focus though.

Did you get the underfloor dynamo with the model?

There from the kit but they didn t come with the other two that i have, there little whitemetal bits and there pretty nice castings.
I ll be adding lamp brackets and a bachmann coupling to one end. I ll be adding running boards to beneath the doors plus replacing the handles and maybe the hinges.
