  • Refining Heljan's Class 47

    James Wells

    Issue 258 (2017)



    After inspiring us with his detailed and thorough conversion of a Class 37 in MRJ 253, James Wells now takes a different approach, and shows that a simple but effective conversion of the Heljan Class 47, can be equally satisfying. There is much to learn from this article and, as James says, it will help you to move towards finer aspects of diesel modelling, and as such is sure to appeal to those who are taking their first steps into improving a RTR diesel, or converting one to P4

  • The Class 37

    James Wells

    Issue 253 (2017)



    James Wells takes a current view of detailing RTR diesels, by showing us what can be done to improve a Class 37 using the best of components available from our new breed of specialist manufacturers like Shawplan, Penbits and Rumney Models. Modelling on P4, and motivated by the movement of freight in North Lincolnshire, he had crafted his Class 37 into an outstanding portrayal of how it would have been seen in the early 1990s, and brings a refreshing topic to the pages of MRJ. We also welcome James to the Journal.
