I have been drawn in to the world of 8 wide models.
I was looking around brickshelf and i saw the level of detail and size, after a few hours of careful planing i decided on a once British rail now EWS class 56. i struggled at first with the bogies and articulation on corners but after an hour or so i got the hang of it. the main body didn't take me as long as i thought and looked pretty good as my first try.
My first poblem was when i started on curves an switch points. i new that ordinary curves would over hang a lot so i tried
Mark Bellis way of 1 curve, 2 straights, 1 curve, 2 straights and so on with only one little grumble i have is it rocked the loco a lot. also a problem is switch points where the loco breaks this piece http://media.peeron....stpics/2866.jpg then derails it on to its side.
Class 56 folder (when moderated)
so if there is any advice you could give me on any thing-model or curves it would be much apreciated.
