CDCDesign ...Not yet, but I'm working on it... I am planning to produce a version of each body kit to fit the Hornby Railroad chassis so that a more affordable version of each can be built, as it does seem rather luxurious to buy either a Bachmann Jinty or 8750 simply to discard the body. Give me a month or so, and I will try to get it done.
CDCDesign@sem34090 If you are wanting a really easy starter kit, then I would suggest going for one of the body only kits which fit bachmann chassis, either the 97xx pannier, or the Johnson 3F. If you wanted to have a go at building the chassis as well, then the North Staffs B class is a nice easy kit as it has plenty of space inside the body for the motor etc, and is only four coupled with no outside cylinders or valve gear.
Hope this helps,
CDCDesign @mattwicksbluebell@mattwicksbluebell I can make the chassis available as a separate unit, although I'm not sure whether it would be a clean fit under the old Ks body. The reason I designed the A class in the first place was because my Ks chassis gave up the ghost, and I felt it was more efficient to create a new kit rather than try to make a fix for the old one. Let me have a look at my old Ks body and see if I can adapt the CAD to fit it properly, then I can make it available with a degree of confidence that I'm not making a huge amount of work for people!
