Jess Dapol C61 City of Truro loco

Postby Jesscheekylee » Sat Nov 14, 2015 12:11 pm

Hi Guys, this is my Christmas build. Dapol C61 City of Truro loco OO gauge, RRP £10.20. I am not going to modify it, but I may add some bits of my own. I going to try and make it look like the Hogwart Express train from my least favorite film, I just love the train.

I'm still waiting for the postman to delivery my kit, which should have been here by now.

Sure, I'll pop over for the evening... it's only a 12 hour flight :laughing-rolling: :laughing-rolling: :laughing-rolling:

Lovely kit Jess. It's the old Airfix tooling, so should give you a few challenges !! I'll give you an extra K if you can get the wheels going round and the value gear working :lol:
Cheers

It can be made to work. Just takes a lot of care to get all the linkages free.

I think this would be a great choice. But at the end of the day, it's up to you what you decide to do and I look forward to your build whatever you choose to enter.
