E – Other scales, locos and rolling stock

Entry 5 – ex-WD Dick Kerr Petrol Electric in GWR Livery

This is a Worsley Works ‘scratch aid’ kit with added detailing running on a Mark Clarke chassis. (0-16.5)

WINNER Chris Webster Entry 21 – Pair of 16mm/ft scale Darjeeling and Himalayan Railway 1st and 3rd class coaches

The coaches are both built from commercial laser cut wood kits. Beading to panels has been added using half round styrene mouldings and the roofs have been “canvassed” with cotton cloth.

Couplings and axleboxes are resin castings from my own masters/moulds. The brake operating gear is all scratchbuilt from brass as are the various safety chains and other fittings. The door and grab handles are also homemade with those on the 3rd class coach being formed and assembled using jigs to ensure consistency.

They are finished in 1920’s livery with full interior detail (including padded seats and curtains in first class – naturally) and a complement of period appropriate Indian/European passengers.
