Great-looking chassis kit awaits assembly
On a recent visit to Manchester MRS clubrooms, Ralph at Palatine Models kindly gave me one of his excellent 4mm scale LMS 57ft carriage chassis kits. Etched in nickel silver, the kit was designed initially to allow members of MMRS to assemble rakes of suitable 'P4' gauge stock for their Slattocks Junction layout. A 60ft version of the chassis is also available and each kit allows for either rivetted or flush sided variants.
Ralph showed me some of his assembled carriages, employing Comet etched body shells. However, I'm wondering about marrying my chassis to a Dapol body that will be super-detailed to match the finesse of the underframe - should be a fun project...
