Etched brass kits

Postby Cwlwch » Mon Oct 03, 2016 8:24 pm

For those in the UK the modellers weekend is later this month.Primarily populated by 3mm moxdellers and run by Allen at Worsley Works. Its a crash course on building etched brass kits. Worsley Works is now producing some American outline diesels. I think the 30 places are fully booked for this year, but at the end of the month you can reserve for next year. You will find experienced modellers who can show you how to build and motorise in brass

Yes, Welcome!
I've got (and actually built!) one of the SW1200's that John Fisher worked with Allen to produce, and it is a beauty! If only we could talk him into doing a remote class here in the States.

Warm welcome.

Just checked out the site you mentioned. My interest was piqued on the etched kits. Something I wish was more available in the states.

Did he ever update the SW-1200 etch to fix the problem on the rear plate?

I have long been interested in building an etched brass kit. At this time I'm willing to even build a British outline steamer. It would be GREAT if a video or series of videos (not You Tube faire) could be sold and marketed on this side of the pond. I would really be "impulsed" to build an "etch" of a North American prototype diesel--of any kind.

A great read... even if you never make it from the lounge chair to the workbench!

Here's what John Fisher's loco looked like:
