Super Detailing the Heljan O Gauge Deltic

15/01/16: Super-detailing the undercarriage #1...

Brass wire and tubing used to replicate the ends of the fuel and water tanks...

My mid 60's model is retaining the original fabricated bogies - the steps are from PH Designs basic detailing fret, which also include parts for cast bogies and later Deltic fittings such as ETH and marker panel covers. Details here: 7mm Class 55 Basic Detailing Set.

Bogie sides re-fitted to the bogies - the brake pipes are shaved off the plastic model and relaced with brass wire.

Sanding pipes are fitted to the rear of the bogies.

The story so far - the front steps (adjacent to the buffers) are also from the PHD fret.
