  • A Simple Conversion

    Geoff Haynes

    Issue 277 (2020)



    With its full and detailed instructions, the Brassmasters Easichas is designed to make the task of converting a RTR model to, in this case EM gauge, very simple. It offers a number of options, from a basic version that re-uses parts of the RTR Bachmann C Class, to a more sophisticated fully etched chassis.

    Neither, as Geoff Haynes has found out, is particularly difficult to build with this well-designed product.
