  1. How to get the bogies of a Craven

    I now have about 100 of the shims given to me by MM They are basically small washers, not the brass affairs that we saw at the 3 day show in October I will have them at the IRM annual boxing tournament on the 3rd if anyone needs them

    Once again I managed to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory MM1509 is a Late Liveried Snack, not an Early one as I have previously mentioned Shims need to be affixed
  4. Murphy Models Craven coaches white stripes

    Just for your info Controller there are 2 more single striped Cravens, MM1504 & MM I515 both standards Generally a bit harder to pick up than the later liveried ones as there were not the same amounts of them manufactured Some pics of them on Page 7 of the Lima Murphy thread on this forum
  5. How to get the bogies of a Craven

    The RPSI bogies seem a lot harder to remove than the original MM ones Plastic is harder or something Kieran asked me about removing them and as I had not removed mine I tried this afternoon Used a trusty Leatherman blade to force them apart Be careful when returning the coaches to their packaging, it is directional so the coach only goes in one way.

    RRP from MM is €57.50
  12. Bray Train & Model Fair

    Should have MM's new launch at the show Update from Murphy Models Announcing the arrival of our 2 vehicle set, comprising a Leyland Fire Engine and Daimler APC (armoured personnel carrier). Available from our usual stockists, deliveries starting later this week. SRP €57.50 In their own way, each vehicle is unique. The fire engine is the first on a Leyland chassis and the first Dublin motorised appliance. It was designed in 1909 by Capt. Purcell, chief fire officer for Dublin. Three examples were built in Scotland. One remained in southern England and the other went to the Indian sub-continent. Nothing further is known about them.The Dublin version was scrapped c.1950. The Daimlers were leased from Guinness by the British Army and fitted with 4 smoke boxes in Inchicore Railway Works. They were welded together, gun ports cut, dummy gun ports painted and rear smoke box door left in situ. The forerunners of the modern day APCs! They were returned to Guinness in due course. The Leyland Fire Engine is supplied with decals (inc. spares) which should be placed on the gold outlined panels forward of the "Dublin Fire Department" plaque (behind the front seat, not on the side of the front seat.)
