Notes on Brass Angle for C.04 and C.05
I am now no longer stocking the 1.2mm equal brass and angle designed to be used in the bogie bolster C and E underframe kits. The cost of this angle has now risen to the point where I feel it is too expensive to stock and use in the kits. From now on the builder will have to supply the angle for these two kits themselves. They are free to buy this particular size if they wish but cheaper alternative sizes (1mm equal and 1.5mm equal angle) are also available.
Bogie Bolster E
- C.04 BR Diagram 1/479 Bogie Bolster E Detailing – £5 (Etch only – brass angle for trussing not included)
- C.04A BR Diagram 1/479 Bogie Bolster E Underframe Etch – £9
This is designed to fit the Lima bogie bolster E model. The detailing etch (C.04) includes full brake gear, levers and guards; etched fold up queen posts to enable underframe trussing to be easily added from brass angle; lamp irons, full headstock and solebar detailing as well as bolster shackles. Note that bogies are not included. Rumney Models reccomends the Colin Craig designed Davis & Lloyd bogies marketed by Stenson Models.
The Underframe etch (C.04A) is deigned to complement, and be used with, the detailing kit and provide a fully etched underframe. Includes solebars and headstocks.

Bogie Bolster C / Macaw B
- C.05 BR Bogie Bolster C/Macaw B Detailing – £13 (Etch only – brass angle for trussing not included)
This is designed around the Bachmann/Mainaline Macaw B model. Full brake gear is included covering all the possible variants: GWR D/C, uniftted lever brakes and the two arrangements of vacuum lever brakes. Etched fold up ‘queen posts’ are provided to enable the underframe trussing to be easily added from brass angle, which is included; lamp irons, full headstock and solebar detailing as well as bolster shackles are also on the fret.
Similar to the above but designed to reuse the plastic trussing with the RTR model. The etch includes full brakegear for lever brake types covering unfitted and vacuum braked versions as well as headstock and solebar detailing along with bolster shackles. There are sufficient parts for two wagons and with the etch you can build either two unfitted or one fitted and one vacuum braked.
Proper D/C brakegear to replace the half hearted effort on the RTR Model. As with C.05A the plastic trussing is designed to be reused. Headstock and solebar detailing is also included along with bolster shackles. There are sufficent parts on the fret for two wagons.
