    I have now fitted the crew, added tools, lamps and a coal load to my MM Scale 7 Pannier. She will be weathered but for now she has the just come from the works look.

    Thanks for that. They looked a bit tighter than 6ft.

    1282mm is 50.5" - so yes they look and are tighter than 6'.

    I thought my eyes weren't deceiving me i should have converted the metric to imperial. 4ft2 is pritty tight. I'm feeling that the Waverly 5ft radius are going to be fine.

    I find that the Dapol 0-6-0, our Heljan 61xx and my Masterpiece Models Pannier cope with the radius. My Masterpiece Models 45xx and 4575 cope in one direction only. My Masterpiece tender loco's, not a chance.
