EasiChas for the Hornby model of the GER J15 0-6-0 consists of fold-up etches to convert the locomotive
and tender to either EM or P4 including new coupling rods,
locomotive guard irons, balance weights, ashpan and replacement brake
David Barham's blog about the design and development of the kit is
well worth reading.
David has already assembled the test etch and it ran successfully first
time - see his video of this
It looks even better with the body on -
choice of wheels has been finalised as Alan Gibson 4'10"
The second test etch is
back from the etchers and looks good - see the picture at top right.
David has built the test etch for the locomotive, added the brake gear
and started on the tender chassis.
