L05: N.B.R. / LNER G7


The G7 is the first kit to be designed by myself (using CAD software). In line with previous kits, Pete Westwater has again made the majority of the patterns. The G7 will initially be available only in kit form and then later as a Ready-2-Run locomotive. The chassis will be in 0.55mm Nickel Silver (slightly thicker than the other kits) and the body in 16/1000 brass. The kit will be supplied with all castings, handrail knobs, bearings, handrail wire, glazing, electrical wire and screw-link couplings as well as fully illustrated instructions. The buffers have turned brass shanks with fully sprung steel heads of the correct diameter. There will be the usual mix of lost wax brass castings including Brake Standard, Cab Dials, Lock-Up Safety Valves, Regulator Handle, Sandbox Lids, Steam Heating Pipes, Smokebox Blower Valve, Smokebox Door Handle, Steam Injectors, Vacuum Ejector, Vacuum Pipes, Washout Plugs, Water Tank Filler Lids, Westinghouse Pump and Whistle. The remaining whitemetal castings include chimney, dome (round top and flat top), round safety valve base, smokebox door and backhead.

This kit has been designed with alternative parts to allow the modeller to build the chassis either rigid or compensated and to either Finescale (FS) or Scale Seven (S7). Thanks must go to Euan Cameron and Ian Terrell for assistance in the development of this kit.
