Airfix 14xx

7065 Views 36 Replies 13 Participants Last post by  Jeorge

I am planning on buying an Airfix 14xx and detailing it. (Adding a Hornby Chassis, Bachmann 8750 cab...)

Does anyone have any pictures of preserved 14xx's or even of a Hornby model so I can see if there is any space in the "cab"

I've got the Dapol 14XX and agree, the smokebox door looks horrible! Has anyone converted the smokebox door to the mainly trains one, and how hard is it? I'm used to building plastic kits etc but haven't dared convert a loco before.

Also, is the same smokebox door suitable for the airfix/dapol city of truro kit? I think the front end has the same problem - seems to me it does anyway
