Gentlemen

I need some help here. I want to add some detail to a Hornby class 52 "Western Invader" and I would like to know what you have done and where to get lets say grilles and other detailing parts that I can add to this loco.

If you have any pictures of your work it would be great and if someone could point out via a picture where the exhaust is please.

Thanks in advance for your help.

Hi Martin,

After a search on the net came up with these links ......

Detailing ...... this site http://www.brassmasters.co.uk/ the particular set for class 52's here http://www.brassmasters.co.uk/Western.htm

I would mail them for a description / picture of what is included in the set, if you need a nameplate for the loco etched Shawplan are a good source ........................ http://users.computerweekly.net/ka/shawplan/spcat.htm click nameplate classes arrow and select class 52 to show whats available.

Just a quick note the Brassmasters kit is designed specifically for the Lima model, and obviously all the instructions regarding roof profiling and fitting the brake shoes etc relate to that model. As far as grills go there is only the roof fan cover and roof fan walkways that are included, there are no bodyside gills for example. the link will take you through the etches included, and the photos are all of Lima conversions, not yet seen a Hornby version done by anyone.
