A special project for a 4mm scale scratchbuilt O2/2 which uses the etched chassis design shown in processes.


O2/2 3501 painted




 

This 4mm scale LNER O2/2 is one of a pair constructed subsequent to the model of 63940 featured elsewhere on my pages.

It is constructed from my own design of etch for the loco chassis, and a proportion of the bodywork as required. With the exception of the tender axleboxes, all the castings are from my own patterns whilst many of the boiler fittings are turned and built up for a better finished appearance.

The wheels are by Exactoscale (available from C&L Finescale) and power comes from a customised High Level gear train with a Faulhaber motor. All finishing of the model - paint, transfers and weathering was undertaken by myself.
