Robert Thompson of RT Models has added a new etch to his range of 4mm scale detailing parts suitable for the Southern Railway and its constitutions companies. This lamp iron etch is in addition to the range of Albert Goodall Bulleid / SR related components that RT Models acquired last year, that are steadily being either reintroduced or upgraded.
The etch of London & South Western Railway (LSWR) style lamp irons includes buffer beam, smokebox and tender type and enough suitable for two locomotives.
To follow after the LSWR style, but not availble just yet, will be a similar etch for the London Brighton and South Coast (LBSCR) style irons that will include the longer buffer beam mounted irons that were a recognisable feature of their locomotives rather than mounting the irons on the smokebox.
At £2.00 this is a low cost etch that will be a good alternative to using either generic lamp iron etches or as I currently do slightly over scale Bambi staples!
I certainly look forward to Robert continuing to add such useful Southern related detailing parts to his range at RT Models.
