This is the first of our range of EasiChas kits for simple and rapid  conversion of RTR locomotives to a sprung chassis in EM or P4. For the first time, no soldering is required to produce a fully sprung chassis.

We have taken lots of photographs during the building of our test model - click here to view these or Download the instructions. Note these do not contain the photographs, otherwise the file size would be massive.

There are various levels of conversion with the builder choosing which, of any, additional detail is required beyond the basic conversion.

The basic conversion makes use of:

fold-up mainframes and keep plate with sprung bearings

fold-up replacement bogie

fold-up replacement tender frame with sprung bearings.

Further components are provided to add to the detail of the conversion. These are, working from the front:

AWS receiver protection plate

drilling jig to allow lifting holes to be drilled in front frame extensions

new middle cylinder cover and footplate overlay

overlays for the main frames in front of the cylinders with bogie wheel splashers

separate bogie dust guards

replacement coupling rods

replacement return crank

replacement tender brake gear

replacement tender guard irons


Etched nickel silver, with 3mm axleboxes, springs, wire and CD (containing a large number of prototype photographs)
