00-gauge ex-GNR/LNER Ivatt N1 0-6-2 tank engine body only.
This model is a customer variation 4mm scale Ivatt N1 with partially removed condensing gear, based on 69481.
The locomotive has been modelled on a British Railways-era saturated boiler example no. 69481 circa 1954. In the era modelled this locomotive had had some of its condensing equipment removed but retained the tank top U-bends and vents.
This body has been designed to fit a Hornby/Dapol/Mainline/Airfix Gresley N2 chassis. Some minor modifications will be required.
To complete you will need: a Gresley N2 motorised chassis (Hornby/Dapol/Mainline or Airfix), handrail knobs and wire, whistle, safety valves, smokebox door dart. You will also need to fashion steps from thin styrene sheet. The model will also need to be prepared, painted and transfers applied. Cosmetic non-working buffers are included on a seperate sprue but these can be substituted for sprung brass versions (available from Alan Gibson
) if preferred.
