Built on a commission basis from the very comprehensive DJH kit and fitted with Slaters wheels and the excellent Slaters GB30R-3M gearbox with a Mashima motor. Many parts of this model are cast in white metal, the smokebox/boiler/firebox has been usual for DJH kits for as long as I have been building, but this kit has the cab floor cast as a drop in from below casting, to which the backhead can be screwed, making a well detailed unit. The cab roof and splasher box castings are well detailed and everything fits together well. Each of the bogie frames are also one piece castings, the leading one has a very clever wiper power pickup idea, designed and incorporated into the kit. All in all making a quick to build model and recommended for the more inexperienced model builder. The superb paintwork is by Warren Hayward.
