Glyn Valley kit footplate modifications

peco glyn valley locomotive kato chassis
New floor/footplate in. Not without a considerable amount of carving and fettling, but so it is when you deviate from an intended design. I wonder if a) Peco will keep the kit in the range for long and b) considering that it is still fairly cheap at twenty quid, is it worth re-tooling the chassis fittings and including a similar chassis? Especially as the tie with Kato is already established. Possibly not as although the base cost would be low, the re-tooling/design costs wouldn't. One for Davis Malton to consider.

  1. Hi Chris, In constructing your GVT loco did you op for gluing it together or using low melt solder? If you glued it then did you use super glue or an epoxy resin?
