The kit builds into a highly detailed scale model of a 20HP War Department Light Railway petrol tractor. Many hundreds of these locos were used in Northern France during the First World War to transport goods to and from the area two within 2 miles of and behind the allied trenches.
The chassis is formed of two nickel/silver frames connected by precision threaded spacers which allow the chassis to be dismantled without the need for un-soldering. This reduces the risk of assembling the kit substantially as you know that if you get it wrong at least you can take it apart and try again! The main drive system consists of a two stage worm reduction drive to the custom made outside journal wheel sets. Four miniature turned bushes provide bearings for the wheel sets.
The body is formed mainly from etched brass components with castings for the radiator and the exhaust. There are various sacrificial tabs and a large sacrificial strengthening section included in the design as an aid to construction and to protect the shape of the frame during assembly. Many detail overlays are added to the basic frame to reproduce rivet detail and representations of the visible parts of the engine and gearbox. The radiator comes complete with fan and fan belt pulley which is fully functional and motorised via a second motor and two stage reduction drive.
There are various spare parts included on the frets and further spares are available from me if you 'ping' anything, initially for postage costs only. I am available by email to answer any questions and deal with any problems you may experience with the kit. Ultimately if you have problems getting your chassis to run I will 'get you going' for a further charge.
