Robert Davies Posted November 11, 2012 Share Posted November 11, 2012 I'm almost embarrassed to start this 'Workbench'. Perhaps it'll serve as an example of 'how not to...' Anywho, on with the bodges: Kibri Dynamic Stabiliser/ballast compacter/whatever(!) One day I was thumbing through youtube and found a machine similar to the above part finished bodge up stationed at Kildare. So without any further excuse being needed, my wanderings went over to ebay and found the appropriate Kibri kit in Deutschland - 35 quid lighter, it arrived three days later. It actually goes together well, with the chassis being straight and true (which was nice...). The kit comes with nylon type wheelsets, but there was a further recommendation in the kit's blurb to use Roco DC metal wheelsets - back to ebay Deutschland and another 15 quid lighter, the wheelsets showed up four days later. The kit was built using Revell's equivalent of Liquid Poly glue, very sparingly. The various highlights where painted in, wipers, hydraulic rams, wheels, lights etc., and that's where it's up to at the moment - awaiting a sharp knife to carve up the transfers for application. -Rob ps Another unfortunate rail-borne victim will be along shortly(!)
