Ralph Brammer Models

Ralph suggested that I put the picture that I sent to him via PM on this thread, alongside the original, to show the difference in cab opening I was suggesting. It was a quick and dirty cut-and-paste job, but showed the effect I was after. I was very gratified when Ralph took my suggestion up and ma...

Loco

Hi Ralph - I think you have the dimentions and proportions of the engine compartment and footplate exactly right now - but your little guy will need his hard-hat getting in and out of that doorway! The cab detail is outstanding.

Someone asked for constuction photos, so here goes: http://i275.photobucket.com/albums/jj319/bilcor/Billslok0004.jpg The underpinnings, showing the new sideframes. I made three sets -- first with a 34mm wheelbase, symetrically disposed around the centreline -- the wheels didn't line up; then, after ...

Wot the Dutz?

A few shots taken during construction, as someone requested: http://i275.photobucket.com/albums/jj319/bilcor/Billslok014.jpg A view of the underpinnings, showing the additions to Mr Bennett's Wasp sideframes and the footplate - it would have been nicer with a bit of checkerplate. http://i275.photobu...

Wot the Deutz?

For some reason the site where I put my photos isn't allowing them to be shown, so I've put them in another site, and repeat them here: http://i275.photobucket.com/albums/jj319/bilcor/bilslok08028.jpg Didi on the Deutz-ish loco, sticking out her elbows. http://i275.photobucket.com/albums/jj319/bilco...

Wot the Deutz?

On my visit to MOMING07 I also purchased from Mr Bennett his 'Loco underframe kit for 24.5mm Tenshodo', although I didn't really know what I was going to do with it. Then I found a photo of a Deutz OME-117 and decided to build something that looked a bit like that – I liked the holes in the sides of...

(F) Gnot-a-Gnat

My first attempt at a Gn15 loco. I like the look of the Gnat, so I went down to MOMING07 to see Mr. Bennett and do some buying. Being too tight to buy his kit, I bought the 'Loco underframe kit for 34mm BEC-Kits', the flat-top radiator, the ballast weights, and the Loco Parts Kit No 1. The basis for...
