    I would welcome your thoughts on pick ups for the Duchess I am currently working on.

    I have used Slaters plunger type ones in the past but I am thinking about shorting out the drivers on the loco and the other side wheels on the tender.

    The Duchess is a wonderful kit to build and I am thoroughly enjoying building it.
    Best wishes

    Richard

  3. Many thanks for that Peter,

    Micks work looks wonderful, hopefully mine will turn out almost as good as his. I will definitely do something similar with wipers for pickups. Also interesting to see where he has fitted weights.

    Peter,
    Richard,
    Having painted a few of yours now, your work is top notch:thumbs:
     
  5. You’re very kind Warren. Building up a kit is only half the story, your painting makes a good model look wonderful.
    As you can see I’m making some progress on the Finney7 Duchess. I am making sure that the sub assemblies are removable where possible to make it easier for you to paint.

    Hi Richard,
    I agree with Warren and you. Your work is superb and Warren's painting will enhence it further. Here's what he did to my Gladiator Duchess.

    Cheers,
    Peter
