Both models came out nicely, but overall, they are too large alongside the Bachmann Thomas characters, so, i have thought about building a Mk III model, the right size and much better.
The donor chassis will still come from the Bachmann 'J72' but i might re-wheel it with Bachmann Percy drive wheels, since they are near enough the same as Billy's.
|(Billy as seen in Thomas & Friends Series 11)|
Billy's design is based on the Manning Wardle 'L' Class 0-6-0.
If his model is rebuilt, it will be done once again with styrene sheets and bits from kitbashed models. I have not yet decided on a date for his building, but it will be done sometime this year, so I'll be sure to keep you all posted!
