Description

Locomotive kit building remains the best route to achieving a varied range of motive power in most scales but it also retains a mystique, being associated with expert modellers and expensive tools. However, in this invaluable, richly illustrated volume, George Dent demonstrates how anyone can successfully assemble working kits with only a modicum of inexpensive equipment and experience. All aspects of assembly are covered in detail including working in plastics, resin and metal; the very basics of working and joining materials; installing ready-made power units and performing more complex operations, such as assembling etched metal chassis frames and intricate valve gear. Includes a full guide to essential tools, materials and adhesives. Covers the art of soldering. Explains the basics behind chassis construction and alignment. Presents an in-depth guide to the assembly of cylinders, coupling rods and valve gear. Examines a range of power unit and transmission options. Demonstrates how to detail and modify kits for extra realism. Illustrates painting, lining and weathering techniques. Offers tips on running-in, testing and maintaining mechanisms. AUTHOR: Boasting a wealth of practical experience, George Dent has been the in-house model-maker and technical expert at Model Rail magazine since 2004. The author of many articles on various aspects of railway modelling, he also runs model-making courses and produces a range of instructional DVDs. This is his fifth title for Crowood. 537 colour photographs
