K308 - BR Std Class 6 ‘Clan’ 4-6-2 BR1 tender
Designed as a medium-weight version of the ‘Britannias’ (see K317A/B) the ‘Clans’ spent virtually their entire lives in Scotland and north-west England and were only occasional visitors to LMR lines south of Crewe. Apart from the smaller boiler and firebox – assembled in this kit from single large castings – and the taller chimney and dome, they were to all intents and purposes identical to the ‘Brits’ and there were no significant differences between the ten 'Clans'. Among the many etchings included with the kit are a fold-up one-piece cab and the correct BR1 tender body with small water dome. The etched nickel-silver valve gear is particularly fine and most of the highly characteristic BR Standard steam fittings are executed as lost-wax brass castings to make soldering easier.
