Patience Is A Virtue

Once a year my long-term project to build a second model of the WHR's KMX Tamper takes a big leap forward before gathering dust again for the next 11 months.

This is not entirely my fault. For most of the last year I've been waiting on Himself to bend and solder a few bits of brass together into the shape of a roof.

Finally the nagging has paid off...

As you can see our existing KMX has been used as a template and Himself has managed a very good copy of the original.

When I get the tamper back the remaining jobs will be to add the external details onto the bogies such as the outboard disc brakes.

It is just possible that it might even be finished and delivered to the client this year.

  1. Impressive work! Your attention to detail is stunning. With a few more welds, you could make more train cars to complete an entire train. Anyway, how did this turn out? Are you still in the middle of doing this? If you are, good luck!
