K30 - LNER/BR Peppercorn A1 class 4-6-2
The prototype, although LNER-designed, was brought into service after nationalisation and the class eventually totalled 49 locomotives – a fiftieth A1, Tornado, is currently being built as a working locomotive. This was one of the first composite etched brass/whitemetal kits ever introduced and it is still a benchmark by which other kits are judged.
It features a whitemetal one-piece boiler/firebox/smokebox, cast footplate and detail fittings, an etched fold up cab and tender, with etched chassis and valve gear. Needs Motor/gearbox and Wheelset to complete. We recommend AM9 motor/gearbox.
