LNER Gresley A1 class 4-6-2 no. 4472 Flying Scotsman

LNER Gresley A1 class 4-6-2 no. 4472 Flying Scotsman. A Limited Edition factory built model by DJH, with its original box and certificate. Slaters wheels, a chain driven motor/gear unit and power collection by plunger pick-ups. Modelled as running for the LNER’s “The Flying Scotsman” non-stop train during the period between 1929, when the loco was paired with a corridor tender, and 1935, when the cut-outs on the cab sides were reduced in size. In my opinion, DJH used to produce models to a superb build quality, but the final finishing is sometimes slightly less so (eg vacuum hoses painted light grey and safety valves painted gold). Since buying this model I have made one or two tweeks to the paint to bring it up to my standard.
