This etch contains sideframes, brake shoes, brake pull rods and wheel balance weights to produce a basic chassis of the correct scale dimensions and appearance which can be used as a substitute for a kit or RTR chassis. Cylinders, motion, crossheads and bogie to complete the chassis are all available from our range. A separate fret of LS15 00 spacers is included, which can be exchanged for EM (LS10) or P4 (LS60) at the time of ordering or by returning them to us in a stamped, self-addressed envelope. The balance weights included are suitable for Jubilees and Patriots. Balance weights suitable for a Royal Scot are also available (LS52).
As supplied the frames are suitable for the Bachmann ex Mainline/Dapol and ex Airfix/Dapol models of the original and rebuilt Scot/Patriot and the original Jubilee, and the Hornby unrebuilt Patriot. They can be adapted to fit the new Hornby Rebuilt Scot/Patriot, the new Bachmann Jubilee and original Patriot, the K’s/Nucast Jubilee and Wills/SE Finecast original Scot.
