An update to our original design. The pilot is now printed flat so that the support material does not interfere with detail. We have also detached the vacuum pipes and hoses and sprued them to the pilot as a separate part. This will make painting much easier, as the parts can be painted separately, then glued together. It also has pilot holes for the cut bar rings and air brake hoses should the modeller wish to add these details (Not included)
2 pilot conversions for Lima South African Railways Class 34 diesel locomotives, sufficient to convert one locomotive. As per the prototype, the front and rear pilots are NOT the same. the pilots have an "F" or and "R" embosed on the inside pilot face to differentiate the front and rear pilots
Get rid of the horrible representation of the pilot that Lima Class 34 shipped with, and replace it with this chassis mounted detail part. As this replacement is screwed to the chassis, it does not move with the bogie. The coupler pocket is at the correct height, and is suitable for the Kadee #158 scale head knuckle whisker coupler or the #178 standard size whisker coupler. It is not suitable for non-whisker couplers. Each pilot mounts to the chassis with two M2 X 5mm self tapping screws, and the coupler box lid requires an M1.4 X 5mm screw.
Couplers and screws are NOT included
