Yet another, Another Katie.

For discussion of the issues faced when building a model or layout - how to replicate wood, what glues to use, exactly how much weathering can a Gnat take, a good source of detailing accessories - you get the picture, I'm sure.

A very tasty treat.

I think if I could have any loco at 12" to the foot it would have to be Katie. Her proportions have always seemed 'just so' to me (sorry James, Ursula is lovely too!). Mean times 1/24ish seems nice indeed!

Cheers,

Howard :

The spectacle rims are very similar to 'cup washers' but are actually

'eyelets', the type often used in material and clothing etc and are

normally pressed together with a 'special tool'.

In this case the flange on the back was filed off and they were glued in

position.

If i remember correctly i found 'cup washers' to be slightly to large,

these are a bit 'heavy' really and with hindsight i probably shouldn't

have used them.

Im' claiming 'modellers licence' on that one

In the past I've used model ship portholes which come in a myriad (maybe Gnot) of sizes.

I know it's been a while, but what mechanism is this based upon?

Thank you.

The mechanism used is a Hornby 0.4.0 from a 'Smokey Joe'.

It was shortened slightly to allow it to fit the length of the footplate.

My Katie runs a chipped Smokey Joe chassis. Very slow and controllable but it has been at least a year since I last ran it. Still need to find the box of bits and finish it off!

That loco is pretty enough to make me rethink my commitment to diesels. Very fine work indeed.
