LB&SCR E2 - Body in 9.525mm / 1:32 / Gauge 1
(A 1:30.48 / 10mm Gauge 1 scale version is also available.)
Due to the size of the model it is only possible to offer it in WSF and not FUD/FXD due to print bed bounding box dimensions.
This is a 9.525mm scale model of the London, Brighton & South Coast Railway (LB&SCR) E2 Locomotive with extended tanks. Re-scaled from the 4mm version and tweaked.
The main motivation for the creation of the SCC E2's was to correct the errors and compromises made by previous manufacturers; as a result these freshly designed and E2's are not shortened, the running plate curves are not over the top and they have the correct wheelbase.
Spectacle plates have been added as an optional extra. If you don't want them simply cut them off and file smooth - easy.
Please note - the prototype photographs sometimes showed the Smoke-Box to have rivets and other times none at all. For this reason this model has been designed as the smooth type to print better and provide a better canvas. Rivets can be added by buying transfer decals that have physical relief. DCC Concepts is one manufacturer that supplies them.
BODY INSTRUCTIONS: The Smoke-Box Door is located on a sprue in front of the body and the 2 slide in cab doors are sprued under the cab. These slide in from the top and are removable, the cab roof is provided loose. This allows you to easily paint the interior and add a crew. . The buffers are sprue joined underneath also, this gives you the choice of using them or substituting them with metal ones from other manufacturers without having to hack them off a buffer beam.
If you use the supplied buffers please note that the buffer bases and buffer heads are slightly thicker than they should be due to printing tolerances so filing them back will bring it back to scale length. The round sprues at the rear of the buffers also double as pins to locate to the holes in the buffer beam.
You will need hand rail pillars or split pins and 0.45mm rod for the hand rails. To make the accurate positioning and fitting easier, holes have been slightly indented on the body; they just need drilling out.
Couplings are left for the user to decide based upon preference; just pop in your preferred coupling type. Alternatively ignore that and slot a scale coupling through the rectangular hole in the buffer beam on the body.
For the pipe along the boiler you will likely have to use some styene or metal rod with a split pin bent to shape.
For the rear window grills drilling small holes to take 0.3mm brass/nickel silver rod is recommended as printing them thin enough is difficult due to the tolerances of 'thin wires.'
