The second programme on locomotive kit construction presented by Tony Wright, this DVD runs for approx. 3 hours to cover the completion of a model locomotive.

The second programme picks up from the first DVD using the same three kits. The major pieces are formed and fitted together, then  the details are started. Chimneys, dones, handrails, pipes and fittings are added. The assembly of the external valve gear components of the A2 pacific is also demonstrated and explained. These are all the items which make your model a unique replica of the prototype.

Tony Wright examines what can be done to make the high standard offerings from Hornby and Bachmann even better. He takes you through the many stages in the process of turning these excellent models into something a bit special. Modifications covered stretch from the most simple of improvements to the application of full detailing kits from Comet and Brassmasters.

Locomotives examined and improved in detail include a GWR County class 4-6-0, BR Britannia class pacific, LMS Black 5 4-6-0 and 0-6-0 Jinty, with many others featured.

Coach modifications include Pullman Cars, Gresley and Thompson conversions utilising etched brass components from Comet and Mike Trice/Dart Castings. Some coach conversions are so extensive that, if you are building coaches from kits this DVD would be of great interest to you.

The 3 hours 15 minutes programme is designed to appeal to everyone from the raw beginner to the more experienced.
