OK, here are the photos of the next 6inch Foden kit. Cool 

front mudguard...



and cab floor...



Dummy pedal...



horn-plates etc...



gear change levers front view...



and rear view (control rods not bent in this photo)...




we will be supplying 3 rods that will allow you to set the horn-plates up as if they were fitted to a boiler. you can then fit all of this kit up to your chassis, although you will need to remove parts of it later.

more next week santa

Hi Steve,

It doesn't look like the material for the smoke boxes will be delivered in time for us to have sufficient days before xmas to do what needs doing and ship the kit before we break up, so we intend to ship out KIT 4's (one of the rear wheels) instead.

Better to still try and get something out the door than miss it altogether.

May I take this opportunity to wish you, Steve, Isabel and all the other staff a merry Christmas and a prosperous new year.

quick update on last weeks work.

first is another couple of views of the 6inch front mudguards...





more good news on the 6inch is the arrival of the boiler tubes and plates...





don't think we will get very far with the boilers this side of Christmas but we have started on the weld prep...



more work on the 4inch burrell, this time the gear change...



and we did finish kit one of the new 2inch batch (front wheels) but the control wheel was taken apart before i had chance to photograph it.

more pics next week ind I'll try and get an idea of what should be going out before the end of the year  Cool

Kit 2 of the R/L went last month so it's in stock. We are working on the next kit at the minute and either a Kit 4 or 7 will be shipped before the end of the week.

the SCC tender kit left the factory at 3pm today  Cool as the castings for kit 2 have been delayed we have used our usual back-up plan of starting at the back and working forwards.

i believe the next 4inch foden kit is the cylinder accessories. we will be getting to this in the new year.

photos will follow sometime over the weekend  Cool

General production update December 2013

Post  Heavyhaul on Thu 02 Jan 2014, 5:17 am

Hi Craig,

First of all i would like to wish you and all the staff a Happy and Prosperous new year, and was wondering what the next kit for the 4 inch DCC Showmans is likely to be, and as i didn't receive a kit for December whether you'll be sending out two kits in January ?

Best Regards
Steve.

OK, steve, the december kit was kit 7. it would seem you have had this already so you were not sent one. the next kit will be kit 4 (rear wheel) so you will get one of these for January. you wont be getting two kits as you are now up to date with current production and there are no more kits in stock to send to you. dean said give him a ring if you want to disscus  Cool

Hi,

I assume it is too early to ask if you have a start date for the new batch of 6" Fodens?

Post  Heavyhaul on Fri 03 Jan 2014, 9:48 am

Hi Craig,
Many thanks for getting back to me, I appreciate that you will try to keep to schedule if materials and suppliers allow, but was wondering when we are likely to receive kits 3 and 3a?.

Best regards
Steve.
