I have designed a set of parts to convert a Model Power N gauge 4-4-0 steam loco into a HOn30 narrow gauge loco.
This conversion is almost identical to the 2-6-0 version, here I will detail the differences.

You can read the 2-6-0 instructions here -
https://www.shapeways.com/forum/index.php?t=msg&th=16784 &start=0&

The differences for the 4-4-0 are the cab position and tender-drawbar connection.

The cab sits further forward on the boiler, up against the 'lump' arrowed.
index.php?t=getfile&id=62848&private=0
The handrails will need to be shortened when they are refitted.

This means the tender is closer to the loco chassis than the 2-6-0. A new drawbar pin is needed.
To do this, drill a hole in the front of the tender chassis, in the round mark as shown.
index.php?t=getfile&id=62849&private=0
Insert a piece of brass rod, long enough to engage in the drawbar.
index.php?t=getfile&id=62850&private=0
It can be secured with some glue when you are happy it's the correct length.

.E/1 Tram ASSEMBLY ADVICE

NOTE: The material is very hard & does not sand or file well. Any small ridges are easiest dealt with by filling & then sanding. Drill bits are initially prone to wander on the surface. Drill slowly or melting may occur.
Canopy glue recommended for fixing glazing. Epoxy recommended for all the rest.

1. Drill appropriately sized holes for trolley poles, trolley pole hooks, brake standards & handrails.( none of these are supplied) ,Check holes in lower deck floor & truck fixing strip are correct for 12BA bolts & for the 6BA bolts on the trucks. Enlarge as necessary. A 2.5mm diameter hole has been provided in the centre of lower & upper deck floors to facilitate the wiring for live overhead. If you are not using live overhead you may wish to fill these holes now.
2. Clean model , ensuring any loose material left over from the manufacturing process is removed, especially from any hollows or crevices.
3. Paint all parts of model on both sides. Acrylic or enamel paints are both O.K. NOTE: the material is quite porous & absorbs much of the first coat(s) of paint. If you later decide that the joins between sides & ends require some minor filling, a touchup of the paint will then be required.
4. Measure & cut all glazing ( 15thou. suggested) & fix in place .
APPROX GLAZING SIZES in mm for guidance only:
Lower deck sides: 4 @ 50.5 x 5 8 @ 33 x 18.5
Lower deck bulkheads: 2 @ 10 x 13.75 1 @ 12 x 14 1 @ 12 x 3.75
Lower deck ends: 2 @ 15.25 x 23.25 2 @ 13.25 x 23.25 2 @14 x 23.25
2 @ 10.75 x 23.25
Upper deck sides: 8 @ 35 x 19
Upper deck doors: 1 @ 10.25 x 18 1 @ 11.5 x 22 (inserted from top)
Upper deck stair bulkheads: 2 @ 34.75 x 20
Upper deck ends: 2 @ 12.75 x 7.25 4 @ 10 x 19.25 8 @ 8.75 x 19.25
2 @ 16 x 19.25 2 @ 15.75 x 19.25

5. Glue stairs , controllers & brake standards ( not supplied) in place on lower deck ends. Fit any handrails required.
6. Glue lower deck sides to ends.
7. Glue lower deck floor & seats in place. Ensure seats are facing towards closed door.
8. Insert six 12BA bolts (not supplied) through lower deck floor & glue heads to upper surface of floor.
9. Fit trucks ( not supplied) in place on 1mm thick truck fixing strip provided. Place strip in recess under floor & fix in place with the 12BA bolts previously inserted through floor. The strip is intentionally deeper than the recess.
10. Glue stair door in open position on one upper deck end.(glazing side towards stair bulkhead)
11. Glue upper deck floor & seating to upper deck ends .Ensure seats are facing towards closed door. Glue upper deck sides to ends & floor.
12. Glue bench seats in place on upper deck.
13. Form trolley pole hooks & fix in place.
14. Glue upper deck to lower deck. Ensure seats are facing the same way on both decks.
15. Fit trolley poles to roof. Glue roof to upper deck.

3. Paint (both enamel & acrylic are OK) model inside & outside.. Also paint floor & seating ,if being used. NOTE:The material is fairly porous & often absorbs a lot of the first coat of paint.
4. Measure glazing & cut to size .( I use 15thou glazing) Fix in place on both cab & saloon ( Canopy glue recommended)
5. Fix drivers cab floor in place together with any interior cab detail required.
6. Fix saloon floor & seating in place ( Epoxy recommended) .Add passengers if required.
7. Glue roof in place.

As with the Coral A:-
[ https://www.shapeways.com/forum/index.php?t=msg&th=17483 &start=0&]
the sprue is FUD and brittle. It should be constantly warmed in hand hot water while
working on it. The sprue should be placed on a flat surface to separate with a sharp
blade.

Dapol pin point 8-spoke axle/wheel sets must be trimmed flush for fitting; as too
the centre polythene boss. Check free running of axles before attaching springs/axlebox
detail. The model is not designed to take pinpoint axle cups set in the FUD material: with
such fine detail it is not a practical option.
.
NEM boxes are on stalks to allow for optional couplings, and must be trimmed off and
reattached if they are the option chosen.

Following an article in Model Rail #193 some confusion has arisen on placing the Shackle

There were 3 pairs of GWR Pollen C to drawing A4 built 1905-1906:-
48903/4
48983/4 (1)
48985/6 (2)(3)

In (1) there are no Shackles shown in a photograph dated 1908
and in (3) during the building of Snow Hill Station, Birmingham.

Shackles are however mounted on the same wagon pair in (2)

It is intended the shackle should be attached to the Frames sides
index.php?t=getfile&id=54621&private=0

The Shackles are located, marked in red, on each sprue and can
be mounted either to stick out, or hang down.

Instructions for a complete build of the GWR Pollen E are available
and start about half way down this page -

http://www.rmweb.co.uk/community/index.php?/topic/51212-litt le-didcot/page-21

Movement to mirror the prototype turntables is provided in the model and it is not
necessary to make the changes in the article.

General assembly can be followed for the older version GWR Pollen C model.

Always support the model by the side frames while cleaning..

This Sprue is printed in FUD and must be kept at hand hot water temperature while working on it.

The picture shows two red lines suggested for the initial cuts either side of the buffers. Support the
whole sprue on a flat cutting surface while doing this. Avoid fracturing from wedging the items apart.
index.php?t=getfile&id=48661&private=0

There should be 4 each of buffers held on the cross, and spring/axlebox detail. Within the cross of the sprue
are the two Brake Handles.

It is then a matter of carefully trimming back to the locating pins,

Dapol pin point 8-spoke axle/wheel sets must be trimmed flush for fitting; as too the centre polythene boss.
Check free running of axles before attaching springs/axlebox detail. The model is not designed to take pinpoint axle
cups set in the FUD material: with such fine detail it is not a practical option.
.
NEM boxes are on stalks to allow for optional couplings, and must be trimmed off and reattached if they
are the option chosen.

To complete, a 0.5mm drill can be used to fit 0.5mm styrene rod for the brake handle linkage (Evergreen #218)

The two cross bars, can be removed when handling will not be a problem.
index.php?t=getfile&id=56107&private=0

The model is now also available in EM gauge.

1. Clear any loose material left over from the manufacturing process,especially from between the double skins. If the cab sides show some fine ridges you may wish to fill & sand them before going any further.
2. Clean model.
3. Lamps can be fitted now or left to later. Add some 0.5mm metal rod to pipework. Some holes will have to drilled for the rod.
4. Paint (both enamel & acrylic are OK) model inside & outside..
5. Measure glazing & cut to size .( I use 15thou glazing) Fix in place .All windows are inserted from the top. Side windows need some careful sizing & manoeuvering !
6. Add any interior cab detail required, before fixing cab roof ( Epoxy recommended)
7. Fix tank to chassis. Fit side "trays" to chassis. There are locators on the chassis, but fixing the "trays" with the tank in place can be tricky. The "tray" supports are quite delicate. .
8. Fix pipework to tank.Tank may need drilling to accept pipe. Pipework can also be fixed to nearside rear of cab.
9. Fit axles ( 2mm dia.), wheels & tyres of your choice.
10. Add any exterior detail required.

Here's a booklet with 36 challenges for the Tile Swap Puzzle that is available in my shop. Included below are four challenges from this booklet.

An easy challenge. Swapping Tile 2 and 5 can be done in five moves.
index.php?t=getfile&id=37772&private=0

The basic challenge. Change the order of all tiles (without changing the orientation of the puzzle). It requires 30 moves.
index.php?t=getfile&id=37769&private=0

The hardest challenge. It requires 38 moves
index.php?t=getfile&id=37770&private=0

A deceptively difficult challenge. Only two tiles need to change position. That should not take more than a couple of moves, right? Wrong. It cannot be done in less than 31 moves.

How to assemble Millennium Puzzle:

Using superglue or a similar adhesive, glue the bottom edges of the 'Millennium Puzzle - Top' and slot it into the hole in the main Millennium Puzzle piece. Rotate 90 degress (so that the 'ledges' are now underneath the edge of the hole).

Picture guide to follow soon!
