LNER/BR A4 4-6-2
This is our most detailed and realistic kit to date featuring detailed parts tooled by Master Model Tony Reynalds. Tony is widely regarded as the best Model Maker of his generation and by combining his ability with our own in-house expertise we have produced a truly outstanding kit worthy of this iconic prototype. Kit PMP10A comes with 1935 Streamlined Corridor Tender and covers Locomotives 2509-2512 and 4491-4497. Kit PMP10B comes with 1936 Streamlined Non Corridor Tender and covers Locomotives 4462-4469, 4499-4500 and 4900-4903. All major variants and alternative fittings are included.
A comprehensive history and bibliography are included in the assembly instruction booklet, which also comprise isometric assembly drawings and supporting digital photos of a model being constructed step-by-step. Some famous names covered by this kit include Silver Fox, Silver Link and Commonwealth of Australia.
The kit features over 20 sprues of lost-wax cast detail and the very finest 4-level etching for tenders and cab. The cab is etched and has sliding side windows and an etched valance plate to give a really sharp edge to the cast footplate. Other etched parts include tender chassis, locomotive chassis and optional side skirts. All etched parts have been upgraded to nickel silver for even crisper detail. The body is a ‘state-of the-art’ one-piece pewter casting. The boiler backhead and fittings are faithfully reproduced and beautifully detailed cast parts include brake shoes, axle boxes and more.
Further realism is achieved with CNC turned, prototypical profile and ‘double action’ functioning sprung buffers and nickel-silver cast crossheads, pistons, slidebars, return cranks, expansion links and front and rear valve crossheads. Anti-vacuum valves and drain cocks are rendered in cast brass and brake, steam heating and water hoses are flexible. The tender has sprung centre wheels, well tank and water scoop and the Streamlined Corridor Tender can be built either fully flared or semi flared as they ran in later life. Optional parts are included for roller bearings. Stainless steel strips letters and numbers are included to cover locomotives 4491-2.
