GWR Stella Class 4mm Scale
The model, built to P4 standards,
painted and weathered by Tom Mallard, shows an example of the class as running in
c1930 at the end of its life
paired with a Dean 2500 gallon tender
The above photo shows:
B4 boiler with a Belpaire firebox .
Smokebox wrapper with snap-head rivets - again alternative plain and riveted smokebox wrappers are in the kit
Later steel roof - alternative parts to represent the original wooden are included.
The cast brass dome and safety valve cover have been painted over (shame !)
The model also includes inside working motion (of course !)
Transfers are from the Tony
Reynaulds range available from CPL Products.
Numberplates assembled from the Martin Finney etches.
An example of the 7mm kit, built to represent a member of the class in c1906 condition, can be seen under the 7mm section.
This can also be achieved with the 4mm kit.
