This fascinating volume tells you everything you need to know about how to build an 00 gauge Tilbury Tank locomotive or, indeed, any similar type of tank. Written in an engaging, encouraging and easily understable style, this new work is a worthy successor to the author's first book, Scratch-Building Model Railway Locomotives, which was short-listed for the Ian Allan Railway Book of the Year Awards in 2014. Containing scale diagrams, step-by-step photos, sketches and specially commissioned artwork, the book celebrates the history of Tilbury Tanks and demonstrates a range of different techniques that will prove invaluable in constructing models of these charismatic little locomotives. If you have not yet taken the plunge and begun scratch-building, or if you want to complement your growing scratch-building skills and knowledge, this is the book for you. Considers how to begin the process of scratch-building a particular prototype, with particular reference to problem-solving and research; discusses the tools, products and materials used to build the model and examines how to complement scratch-building with etched parts and castings; covers the more complex tools and jigs that are employed for impressing rivets, rolling boilers and soldering chassis; examines the fault-finding methods used in order to get a simple chassis successfully up and running; explains the choices involved in providing springing and beam compensation; provides simple solutions for achieving a good paint finish. Brimming with useful hints and advice, this new book tells you everything you need to know about how to build an 00 gauge Tilbury Tank locomotive, or any similar tank and is beautifully illustrated with 286 colour photographs and diagrams including sketches and specially commissioned artwork.
