Britains County 1884


Recommended Posts

This is something that has been on the go for a while, it started life as a battered 1884 with a smashed cab and a cracked bonnet (although it is no longer on the powerfarm chassis). Still some work to do, the cab roof needs to be painted properly and I will add lights, mirrors etc. when I get round to ordering some. The rear linkage  is missing one of the blue arms, but I'm sure it'll turn up.

Steering county axle is still destined for the FC1174 (which is still getting there...slowly  :) )

This axle is the Deutz Bayern, but with the 'hubs' mounted on top of the axle and attached in a similar fashion to the original, but with longer nails instead of the original screws...like a high rise kit but in reverse ;) I think it looks ok, about as close as i could get without scratch building another....which I never will :D i just wanted this one finished so off the shelf parts it was. Next time I'm seriously considering the Siku TW model with a bit of grinding to the mudguards as the base, the front chassis shape seems a lot better suited.
