Worsley Works SW kit...

Worsley Works SW kit...

Postby Marquette » Mon Jul 18, 2011 9:56 pm

So, I have the etch, and I have a T435 with the Pennsylvania trucks... and I have /zero/ soldering skills, no equipment for soldering, and that's honestly not something I'm wanting to spend any money on, so, I'd have a question:

Would anyone be up for taking on a commission job - soldering together the SW etch?

I'll do the painting myself, but I'd like to have a running locomotive in time for the November show in case I'm still here in Vancouver (which is looking more and more likely right now, sigh), so that people here can finally see some North American equipment in motion too, alongside the European stuff.

If you think you might be up for this, please drop me a PM... thanks. :)

If you can't find anyone you can glue the etch as well. Although, I will admit that the result is not as good.

I've heard that mentioned, too. What would be the best adhesive? Pliobond maybe?

I have done some soldering. Bring the kit by the store someday and I will have a look at it.

Thanks Bill, I'll do that...

...as soon as I locate it. :(

This sucks: I can't find the SW etch... the GP7 underframe is totally warped, the BL2 body CAD is become a nightmare to the point I should oughta restart it...

NEED MOAR POWERRR!!! Specifically something CN...

Was thinking to do the GP7 in CN green, and the SW in CN black (or maybe in green as an SW1200RS, but. We'll see...)

Resin - it's the one from the PVM power kit.

Gotcha. Just out of curiosity, how long did it sit before it started warping?

Ooh, I've had that since... ... 2006. Was one of the very first North American TT things I ever bought.
