CCT UNDERFRAME

Scratchbuilt chassis for Hornby/Lima CCT



Reader Peter Stanton posted a question here about a Hornby (ex-Lima) CCT project that featured in Model Rail a few years ago (November 2007 to be precise). Well, I've managed to find an image of the scratchbuilt chassis, constructed largely from 60thou' Plastikard, plus various Evergreen plastic sections and strip. The axleguards and buffers are whitemetal castings from Fourmost Models/ABS, with most of the other fittings either from the scrap box or salvaged from the original chassis moulding. The work was well worth the effort as the model looks pretty good, especially in the Red Star livery, which was a favourite from my old spotting days. I started another couple of these chassis and I really must dig them out and finish them off.
