3 1/2" Conway Hunslet

Here we have an early stage 3 1/2" gauge quarry Hunslet to the freelance, but well proven 'Conway' design by Martin Evans. The machining work completed to date here is first rate. The fit of the axle boxes in the horn guides tells you everything you need to know about the quality of the job as they gently slide downward to the keeps under gravity with a satisfyingly smooth motion. The cylinders are bored, and it looks as though all the castings are there to complete the job. The pressed tank ends are nicely formed and the smoke box too is well done.

The real value here though is of course the particularly nicely made, brand new professional boiler by Alec Farmer. Silver soldered copper as you'd expect, and an excellent build by a well respected professional without the wait or cost of making one today.

As with most of our models, what you see isn't necessarily what you get!

We often photograph models pretty much as they come in to us, and then when someone phones to say they are interested we pull the model into our workshops and make sure everything is tested, sorted and ready to go.  So if you see the odd model photograph with a fitting missing or a return crank in the wrong place, that's just how it came in and certainly not how it will leave.

For any more information please don't hesitate to give us a bell on 07816 963463
