BR(SR) Maunsell Schools class 4-4-0 no. 30925 Cheltenham

BR(SR) Maunsell Schools class 4-4-0 no. 30925 Cheltenham, This model has just been built by myself on commission from the excellent David Andrews kit. The build was started on the 10th April 2018 and finished on the 13th August. Just over four months and around 145 build hours. No major problems were encountered with building this kit, although being a very comprehensive kit of a complicated prototype, tackling one of these as a build project should not be for the beginner or the fainthearted. It presently has a Portescap motor and gears, but as it is proving a little slow, the client has ordered an ABC unit as a replacement and I will be upgrading the model when that is to hand. Final testing will be taking place at the Poachers test track on Sunday 19th August and all being well it will be handed to Warren Haywood for painting at Telford into BR lined green livery.
