More Class 37s
This was completed very recently...
As usual now, it is based on the newest Bachmann bodyshell with their six axle chassis, rewheeled with Branchline's 'Black Beetle' wheels. I used Brian 'Extreme Etcher' Hanson's windscreens,which really make the 'face' of the model. Sadly I didn't have one of his fan grilles at the time I did the roof, so I used the Shawplan surround and some Scalelink mesh, the result is quite pleasing and, thanks to its soldered construction, is surprisingly durable. The brake chains complement the model rather well I think.
I have a 37/4 of my own to do soon, but I am waiting for Brian's new parts to appear before I tackle it. It's a strange limbo stage for D&E modellers at the moment, if you want the best locomotives, there's little point doing anything at the moment! Brian's parts are revolutionising D&E modelling!
