Has another had this months kit?

Post  chas12154 on Tue 26 Jul 2016, 1:53 am

Hi all, just wondering if there is a problem with July's kit? I normally get mine around the 22nd, each month. Iv'e not heard anything from STW this month. I'm on kit 15 of my build, 2" Burrell.

Many thanks

Charlie

Hi Mike

After posting this thread, I too, had a text saying my next kit was being delivered tomorrow.
Had a text just now, saying it will be delivered at lunchtime.
Hope your getting on ok with your build?

I'm still fighting with the cladding! Finally got it fitting ok and now waiting for paint to dry so I can start putting things together. I haven't had it all together yet, be great to see the engine on its wheels and looking like an engine.

Hi Charlie, the builds going ok. The cladding was a right pain. Be careful you dont scratch the paint when fitting. It seems ages since i started. I wish i had enough money to buy the rest of the kits or what is available. Not too worry, should be in steam this time next year.😂

Hi Mike, I have had to repaint one part of the cladding due to scratching it! The end bit that fits near the hornplates. I have got to the stage of lining it again and hoping to be putting it all together over the next couple of weeks.
I have received Kit 15, today. Got the steering pars now, not a big kit but still lots to do.
The kits aren't cheap, each mouth a lot to pay out.
I'm hoping t be in steam, this time next year. Will be worth the couple years building the engine and see it working and alive.

Hope to post some more pics soon as Iv'e got it on its wheels.

I had the same issue with that part of the cladding. Kit 16b arrived today. A lot of fittings, and very critical alignment all to come. Happy days!😂😃😅
