I need to perform some major surgery on the internals of a Hornby tender so I can fit a large speaker. It's a long time since I have done something like this but my memories are of long and awkward struggles to get a scalpel into just the right place and slowly hacking parts away at great risk to the model and my fingers. There's got to be a better way, so I was wondering what methods people use. I am considering a Dremel fitted with a cutting disc, perhaps running from a flexible shaft.
Well I decided to ask for a Dremel for Christmas and was lucky enough to get one. Having read all the safety and "running in" instructions I attacked the coal bunker of the A4 in the manner suggested above with success. I had laid in supplies of Express Models' 4 way mini-connector and as there is plenty of room inside a Hornby A4 body, swapping the Lenz Gold for an ESU LokSound was no problem. So now I have a sound fitted A4 and I'm a very happy person indeed.
