This is a gift suitable for a person who both likes trains and the challenge of assembling them! This set is a laser cut kit of a 4-6-2 class Flying Scotsman with its Tender. The Flying Scotsman has lots of nice detail including having the unique corridor so crew can change shifts on the long runs. Some of the wheels do turn but main wheels are locked with the linkages and the model is designed for decorative display use, not to be used as a toy. A popular gift for Dad's and Grandad's, especially at Christmas time.
While there are plenty of parts in the kit it is not difficult to build, instructions include photograph stages so parts can easily be seen. We have also numbered the multiple rings (approx. 80) that make up the boiler so it is just a matter of sliding on one at a time. Each locomotive kit comes with 2 x 260mm sections of track too!
This Flying Scotsman has a track gauge of 32mm (O gauge) and is approx 1:43 scale.
Dimensions in milliammeters:
Overall 480(l) x 93(h) x 57(w) | Locomotive 305(l) x93(h) x57(w)| Tender 170(l) x85(h) x57(w)
Each Kit is laser cut from 3mm plywood and the majority of the parts have a glueless fit due to the accuracy of the laser cutting, however, glue is recommended for a long life product.
