"A4 Conversion Etches - further update"

I've had a surprising amount of interest in these etches to convert a garter blue Hornby A4 into either its post-war variant or into Sir Nigel Gresley of the 1980s, so an update is necessary.

I'm taking delivery of a further set of test etches from Peter Harvey, which I will use over the coming weeks on a further A4 model, and will showcase the build on this blog. This takes into account previous discussion, including the addition of some etches to represent the cab front window spectacles, and some slight modifications to the artwork for parts to fit more cleanly.

Once I've finished with these test etches (and only if no further problems are found), I will be making them available for purchase later in the year.

Just want to add my thanks to Peter Harvey for his work in developing this product, and to everyone interested for their patience in the development of these etches. 

Until next time!
