4" Burrell TE
Our 4" Burrell became Steam Workshop Re-Build No.11, and is now sold to her new owners and due for completion and delivery very shortly!
Just a few photos to illustrate our ongoing rebuild of our 4" Burrell Traction Engine. The model is available for sale but the re-build has of course started, so the opportunity to specify your own livery has now passed on this one. It's underpinnings are of course kit based, but you wouldn't know it by the quality of build here. Equally, as hopefully the photos will convey, we are finishing and detailing it to a good level.
It's essentially a brand new model, but one which was painted incredibly poorly, and with an odd paint that seamed to have sagged on all the warm areas. We have stripped the model completely, and taken it back to bare metal, and it is currently in the lining process receiving it's straw and black lining before reassembly.
So, straight to a gallery of the finished engine!
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.
