54XX Pannier Tank.
Using a footplate from a damaged Pannier body he has married the two together. The use of a whitemetal footplate gives strength and weight as the body is extremely light.
The castings are from a 57XX kit with the chimney and dome modified to suit the flat topped pannier tank.
The chassis is a Brynkits fold up type fitted with Romford wheels and Branchlines Mashima 9/16 motor and 40:1 single stage gearbox.
I think that as the project gathers pace, a very good model of the chosen prototype will be produced.
