JUST A QUICK NOTE. 
Thank you all those that have wished me well with this locomotive - i appreciate it - but i must clear a couple of points. I cannot stress enough that this is the Class20/3 varient of this long lived locomotive and as such has detail differences from earlier models. The 20/3 has much more squared off cab corners to those rounded on earlier varients - there is a radius but a small one and the cabs DO reduce in width to the rear of the locomotive - BOTH of which are fully replicated on my model. Sorry the photos were quickly taken on my phone so may not be as good as my Nikon - when i get to time re-photograph.
There is a very slight adjustment to the cab roof on my model for manufactoring reasons. This is modelled in resin and as such needs to be a certain thickness for structural strength and to prevent cracking and sagging. To allow for this the sloping area above the forward facing windows is a fraction higher than on the real thing. Should i have copied the original to this exact dimension it would have resulted in the roof being less than 1mm thick - and totally unacceptable for resin. I hope you can see passed this which results in just under a 1mm intentional error. The roof gutter could be sanded off and a smaller added to give a better impression if you wish to do so.
There is sufficient material on the resin to allow the builder to back-date this kit to represent earlier varients with more rounded cab corners - should the builder wish - but i didnt design this locomotive other than for the 20/3  - so please bear this in mind.
SEE SECTION  " CLASS 20 " FOR FULL DETAILS
*** NOTE --THIS SECTION IS UNDER CONSTRUCTION AT THE MOMENT **

THE BASIC KIT WILL ALLOW THE CONSTRUCTION OF THIS LOCOMOTIVE TO THE LEVEL SHOWN HERE

History
Originally constructed as a solid sided wagon the POA's were later fitted with cutouts in their sides to prevent overfilling - these became classified as ZKA Limpets. These too were later modified by cutting their sides down forming the ZKA Doorand and the MTA's.

Plenty of livery options !
Just a selection below
A.C. RAILBUS
I am sorry but i have decided to remove the Railbus from my range for the forseeable future.

This is due to a new etch tooling being required after a reasonable number of these have been finished.  This cost and the current level of sales for this item would mean a considerable price increase for finished examples.

Sorry to those that will be disappointed by this decision.

However the Class 104 DMU is a viable alternative and will be available shortly in 2 - 3 and 4 car options. These were constructed in 1957 and as such have worn a good number of liveries including the original examples with a "Cycling Lion" emblem on the power cars !


About Steve Golding Models
I am probably better known for building full time proffesionally in O gauge. I started after being a Project Engineer in the Petro-Chemical indusrty for 35 years - working and designing Refineries all over the world. I sadly had to withdraw from this career following Throat Cancer - not caused by my working envioronment but because of indemnity insurance reasons can you believe.
While recovering I built a number of O gauge locomotives for myself and these were noticed for their quality and detail when I placed them for sale. This led me to being asked by a number of manufacturers to build for their display models, i also built for The Home of O Gauge and private individuals for their collections and becoming a full time professional. I had my own trade  stand at many O Gauge Guild shows.
I gained considerable experience building most of the varied kits from the then array of manufactuers -- some excellent kits and others - well - lets say they were better left in the box. I decided to design and produce a kit for the Tyneside Electric stock - which was well recieved.
However it was at this time that I had decided to continue with a career in commercial flying. I did this for sometime before becoming disillusioned and elected to fly Twin engined props instead of 737's -- so much more fun.

Well i have retired from all that now and the calling for quality modelling has returned. This time however I believe that Gauge 1 10mm scale is more appealing to me but this time I've decided to intorduce my own range of Wagons locomotives- Diesel and Steam and coaches ( using Peter Allioitt shells and my own castings ) -  offering all as Ready To Run.
I build and paint everything myself - and do not accept commissions to build other manufacturers models.
 
I design all of my range myself - following extensive research of the prototype and in a fashion that i would have liked when building professionally. I give my detailed drawings to an excellent and highly experienced professional draughtsman to copy into CAD and these are passed to the Etchers to provide crisp, accurate and detailed etchings.  I also make the masters for all of the castings myself and although I cast my own Resin castings -- those that are in White Metal are cast by others for me.
 
UPDATE --- APRIL 2018 ---- if you have got this far . . .well im impressed !!. 

This section previously continued on regarding my kits. Well most if not all of my sales have been for Ready to Run versions of my kits. As such ALL of my range is now offered excusively as RTR - i no longer offer these in kit form.  This may change as my range expands and i develope new items. But as of now the JNA - 21 and 24 1/2 ton minerals - the LNER Vans - the J50 - and the FEA-E are not available in kit form.

I now attend a number of Gauge 1 Guild shows with my trade stand  - so I hope to meet you face to face -- more of a nightmare for you I fear.
