im thinking of purchasing a DKH loco kit Ref k 18, it the Jones goods loco, i have not used their kits before, has any one have experiance with them? i have reasonable skills with model building, would this kit be beyond my capabilities? any thoughts would be welcomed, incidently, considering that the complete loco would be marching on towards £200 when complete, it puts into perspective the resonable cost of todays locos and their quality.

Many thanks for the replys so far, all of which i had given no thought to at all, its a shame that there appears to be no rtr chassis available, as i can see the merits with this if it where possible, as a sizable cost of the kit is taken in the wheels and motor, also changinging the piston rod to a harder wearing metal makes sense, again something i would not have thought of. As a point of intrest where the wheel spacings peculiar to this locomotive only?

many thanks, John
