Loco Chassis Construction: the Essentials (weekend workshop)

Led by Tim Shackleton

The early stages of building any model are critical. If key components aren’t straight, square, level and perfectly aligned from the start, then no amount of fiddling will ever put them right and the model will never run satisfactorily. Designed primarily for 4mm modellers with limited experience in loco construction, this two-day workshop aims to encourage best practice in the fundamentals of chassis-building. The Saturday session focuses on constructing the frames, while the Sunday workshop moves on to cover wheels, gearbox, pick-ups and wiring.

The Workshop includes sandwich lunches and unlimited light refreshments on both days.

The fee for this workshop is £135 and Friends of Pendon are entitled to a 10% discount.
