I have decided to start this thread before the parts have arrived. What it will comprise of;

-MIR Brass Overlays for Mk2b coaches (link; https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Aid-To-Scratchbuilding-Kit-For-NIR-80-Class-DEMU-InterCity-Livery/114194340972?hash=item1a96835c6c:g:ZtAAAOSwQNNeaWRU) - RECEIVED 29/04

-Mk2 coaches as a base, probably Lima 

-Replica Railways 64’ motorised chassis (link; http://www.replicarailways.co.uk/die-cast-chassis/chassis-variants) - RECEIVED

-Phoenix paints - RECEIVED

-Some other features which I won’t disclose now

 

Overlays are due next week. Once they arrive, I will measure them and work out which coaches I would like to use. I can’t wait to get started! Stay safe everyone, NIR 450 ‘Castle’ Class

Hi got several part built looked to making a comet style kit with a brass end vice the overlay road as it means less chopping about  with ends available as parts and better bogies available than the lima offerings.
