Building 4mm Loco Kits - Model Railway Handbook No. 11
Wright, Tony
ISBN: 1871608759
Irwell Press Clophill, Bedfordshire, England 1998 First Edition
 Soft Cover 76 pages b/w photos - Always the most popular aspect of railway modelling, the construction and running of model locomotives is critically described and illustrated in this latest Model Handbook. Tony Wright has a long pedigree in building 4mm locomotives and has been for some time a regular contributor on such matters to the model railway press. A whole range of examples are described from the diminutive 0-4-0s to full blown Pacifics, pre-grouping to B.R. Standards. Constructional methods are examined in etched brass, sheet metal, cast metal and resin and include examples of composite kits and modifications. Aided by colleagues to give a wider range of prototypes and liveries, the writer presents a lavish, professionally illustrated selection of locos built from the kits of S.E. Finecast, Coopercraft, D.J.H., Model Loco, Crownline, Alan Gibson, Comet, Pro-Scale, Jamieson, Nu-Cast and many more. The thorny problem of painting, lining and lettering is described by professional model painter Ian Rathbone, though simple painting methods are also considered by the author. All in all, a must for kit lovers everywhere.  New/No Jacket
