Airfix 14xx

7063 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"

The Airfix model suffered from the sprung pick-ups losing their spring and the metal worm destroying the plastic gear wheel. It was possible to overcome the pick-up problem by using a pick up fitted autocoach while Branchlines at one time offered a replacement gear wheel.
