A new G1MRA Book – Scratchbuilding an electric GWR ‘Bulldog’ 3343 ‘Camelot’, by Tony White
In this new G1MRA book, Tony White explains the way he translates his research on full-size build variations into a finely detailed scratch-built 1/32 scale electric model of a GWR ‘Bulldog’ 4-4-0 named Camelot. He decided that Gauge 1 lent itself to finescale models that could run alone without the need to build matching finescale countryside, and combined all that he had learned about model engineering and making detailed fittings. His young grandson used to watch as he started building the ‘Bulldog’, and Tony realised that when he inherited it, he would never remember how they made it if it went wrong. So, he made copious notes, took many photographs and wrote a leaflet on taking it apart. This developed into a new 92-page G1MRA book. G1MRA Vice-President Martin Hulse and Committee member David Halfpenny have worked with Tony in editing and producing the book. Martin comments “Editing these books always gives me an ‘ahah’ moment when I suddenly realise why something so simple works, Tony provided one with the three-point suspension diagram which reminded me of JvR’s Type J bogie which also uses a three-point geometry approach to avoid springing individual axleboxes.” If you are inspired by this book to try Gauge 1 scratchbuilding, you will find a wide group of G1MRA friends and suppliers to help you solve any problems that arise.
