Worsley Works kits

Recommended Posts

I have found an old Worsley laminate brake standard (set of sides etc). 

Does anyone have any thoughts as to what might be a suitable donor chassis / bogies, both as a strictly accurate representation, and possibly a cheaper compromise that looks acceptable?

Hi John

The biggest challenge with the Worsley Works Park Royal and Laminates is in forming the roof as they are scale width and length and not really suitable for a British rtr chassis

My article on building these coaches will give you an idea of whats involved. http://www.worsleyworks.co.uk/NG/NG_NIL_Art1.htm

Alternatively we might be able to arrange a swap for a set of 1904 "Bredin" sides and a Dapol Stanier donor coach .

Dead easy way of making an eliptical roof is to use 5 thou brass easy to form the ellipse over a bar.iv'e used  on all my Worsleys from Castlederg to Creat Northern dead easy Andy.
