New Items for April 2018

Spring is in the air and Scalefour North just around the corner which means a new set of releases from Rumney Models.

A couple of eagerly awaited commission projects reach fruition and are released.

Firstly there is a loco chassis for the MR/LMS/BR 1P 0-4-4T (X.04 – £38). This is a modern chassis designed to go under the craftsman body. It is designed to be fully sprung and can be built in P4, EM and OO. It features full brakegear, dummy inside motion, 3D printed details and a removable keeper plate with cosmetic driving wheel springs.

The second commission project is for a set of fully sprung diesel bogies for the all wheel drive Hornby BR class 31 (X.02 – £33). This is slightly different from my previous diesel bogies as it features guitar wire leaf suspension for both primary and secondary springs. The bogies are almost entirely self contained meaning little modification is required to the Hornby chassis block. Includes custom High Level skinny hornblocks.

Another project that has been rumbling on for a while also sees the light of day though this time a home one. Finally available are my sprung freight bogies. The first couple of releases cover GWR standard and heavy duty types (G.04 & G.05 – £12). They feature etched sideframes and bolster with cast whitemetal bolster springs and journals. BR types will be added to the catalogue soon and there will be a very small number available from the stand at Scalefour North.

Other items newly released include an underframe for the Chivers GWR & SR Tunny (B.35 – £13.50) and an S Scale RCH 17’6” x 9’ Morton brake wagon underframe (SB.32 – £18). Also released are additional parts to convert my anchor mount tank wagon chassis (B.71) to other variants. These cover 14T wagons with RCH axleguards (B.72 – £2.50), 20T wagons with BR Plate axleguards (B.73 – £2.50) and 20T wagons with RCH HD axleguards (B.74 – £2.50).

I hope to see some of you at Scalefour North,
