The battery locomotive kit has arrived. Or to be accurate, two kits. Given the medium (card) I had a feeling that, unlike Metcalfe kits, these might be a little more delicate.
I was pleased to see I am right so it wasn’t a waste of money. The kit is designed to be a static model so it is more of a scratch-aid for what I intend to produce.
It is nicely presented in a folder and comes with a full sheet of instructions. The instructions are for all their kits of battery locos so not all the numbers line up or instructions apply quite the same but are perfectly understandable despite that.
What I intend to do is use the two kits to provide more definition and depth to the flat sides of the kit such as by putting the doors back into the body and maybe doing something about the ventilation louvres.
