 "We are delighted to introduce this highly popular model as our first fully machined, bolt-together, kit. It provides the opportunity for complete novices to assembly their own model without the need to solder, mill, turn, or tap. Not only will provide an enjoyable pastime, but will also serve as a learning experience as to how a live steam locomotive works. The kit also offers a quick build option for time served model engineers who feel they do not have the time to undertake another extended scratch build".

The GWR 15xx Class

All ten locomotives of the class were constructed in 1949 at Swindon and entered service on the Western Region of British Railways. They were employed on heavy shunting duties at London Paddington. Numbers 1501/2/9 were later sold to the National Coal Board for use in collieries. The 15xx was turned out in different liveries including lined black and NCB maroon.

The Model

We have chosen the 15xx Class as our first fully machined, bolt-together, kit model. It is a substantial tank engine with two outside cylinders and Walschaerts valve gear. The kit is divided into 6 sub-kits, delivered together. It is suitable for the novice builder who will benefit from illustrated assembly instructions and a video of Mike Pavie building the kit from start to finish. The kit is delivered fully painted in the livery of your choice. The model is also available ready-to-run. Boilers are silver soldered and UKCA marked. All components benefit from a 5 year warranty.
