Just wanted to know, how many foden are being built at the moment.

Post  phil gomez on Fri 10 Oct 2014, 12:33 pm

Hi, just wondering how many wagons are under construction?
Looking at buying a kit myself and would be interested in advice and tips on building one.
Can anyone help.
Plus, photos of builder work are alway interesting.
Look forward joining the building family.
P.s.
Thinking of a SWB foden (good looking machine).

Phil. Very Happy

Hi Phil

I am currently building a SWB Foden, started it earlier this year and so far have received 7 kits.

The only advise and tip i would give is read instructions twice over, then test fit remove and paint.

You can see my progress under Iris 4.5 Foden thread

Hi guys. Thank you for your replies.
I have been following your progress Russ and I must say it's looking good and Mike after seeing your wagon at Dorset this year I know the foden was the one for me (very nice looking machine). Thank you for spending the time to talk to me, mind you same of the time was spent watching those two tractors trying to pull that water tanker along past you (lots of mud and very amusing).
Thanks again.
Phil.

It took hours of shovelling to get us across those ruts after that.

Just thought a share a couple of picture with you.
First one, two tractors trying to pull one stuck water tanker out of the mud.



Andthe second one, a very nice looking wagon and not to be left out a good looking showmans engine.



Can anyone tell me how owns that brilliant looking Foden wagon at steamtractionworlds stand and are there any more pictures posted on this site? I just want to congratulate them on an wonderful looking machine.

Thanks.
Phil.
