Re: GRS Hunslet loco kit with rtr chassis

Hi Phil
Yes and yes! Still available and the saddle tank is preformed plastic - injection moulded I guess.

Re: GRS Hunslet loco kit with rtr chassis

I guess people aren't so keen on building kits these days with so much relatively inexpensive rtr on the market. There was a build article in Garden Rail a few years ago and the writer had made a lovely job of it. My interests have changed and sadly I haven't the time/motivation to spend on this pro...

Re: GRS Hunslet loco kit with rtr chassis

Just came across the Timpdon r/c set up I was going to fit in the loco when I originally planned the project. Includes everything you need. Happy to include this with the loco and chassis above as I'm having a clear out!

Trackshack

Sad to note that Trackshack have closed down. Due to personal reasons as I understand it. An excellent retailer who provided superb customer service. They will be missed.

GRS 32mm gauge diesel and tippers

I've seen an advert for what looks like a very affordable little battery powered rtr diesel from GRS priced at £299 including four tipper trucks. Does anyone have any more info on this?

GRS do rtr chassis in 32mm as well as 45mm and coming from O gauge 7mm scale I have to say that the GRS 32mm chassis seems reasonably priced and looks OK. Worth a punt in my opinion!

Hi! I've got the cabbed version to build when I get the time. The kit seems fairly straightforward but I suspect it will take a bit of work and upgrading of parts to get a really good result as some parts are a little crude. As far as fitting batteries and r/c are concerned you'll be on your own as ...

Just goes to show there's never one correct way to do something. I'll have to have a look at the Screwfix catalogue and decide!

Fixing track

Hi what's the best way to fix track to a wooden base - screws or nails? I used screws and plugs on the concrete section but the raised section is on timber planks. Thanks

Sorry for the delay. Here is one of my BR coaches where I have used Ford Sierra Beige for the cream upper body. Hope this image helps!
