Hi Stevo
Before you go too far. Can I suggest getting a copy of the book " Victorian Railways K class 2-8-0 locomotive, A photographic Profile..."

This book is entirely photos of K class locos, and will be necessary to get some details correct :) Should also help you to select a specific loco to model as well! :)

Looking forward to seeing this one as you go :)
Zec

Hey Steve,

Looking good so far, sadly though, the fireman's side window is buggered.

You wouldn't be refering to this one would you Zec? I've been pinning for books of this series, Ks, NAs and D3s in particular. Always thought I'd get one for Christmas last year but came up with Top Gear Live tickets instead, not that they were a pitiful alternative :lol:

Incidently, the K looks great already. Only thing I'm curious about is how to paint the mech (rods and drivers) properly. Should look into fully finishing off my SEM kits, adding the copper rods to make up the various details the wagons have been missing thus far.

Cheers
Tim :ugeek:

Question for Kit builders: What is the best way attach plastic/resin parts to brass/metal parts or Vise Versa?

Cheer

G'day postst,

Stevo, there are a number of excellent glues around that will 'join' non plastic materials to other non plastic materials but since you have asked for "...the best..." in your enquiry, I am required to say that amongst the 'fraternity', "Cyanoacrilate" or CA type glues (otherwise known as "superglues") are the recommended 'stuff' to use. Be warned, however, that CA glues are 'polymer' in their action, that is, they form a thin layer on the surface to which they are applied and then form a bond via that molecular thin layer. This means that they will bond anything and everything to anything and everything else (well, almost). It would be wise to keep a small vial of Nail Polish Remover (one of very good quality) handy, should you find yourself 'in a sticky situation'...

Good show that was,

Anyway, they're very good books to have, and some photos in them that really show a loco that a lot of other photos don't. My dad's company prints them and now, since John Seargent's passing, he also has a hand of selling them

...Got the Loco on the chassis, and I ask, is the distance between the tender and loco too far?

I would say it's not too bad actually!

Remember, you'll have a larger gap than the prototype on models, so as to allow it to go around smaller than scale curves :)

Best way to check is to actually send it around your layout, and see how close they get...
