Replacing the weight in a Class 33

One of the problems with the 33 was the missing steel weight. This was easily rectified by adding sections of lead from the 'secondhand' roll which for some reason lives in the garden. As previously noted, nothing will stick to the plastic that the frame is made from, so with four sections dropped into the battery box recess, I melted two lengths of sparkler rod into the floor to retain. This is a bit rock 'n' roll for most people and I can't see too many taking this approach with a new Heljan item.

I may put this to one side for now as it would need a lot more aesthetic work to get it up to scratch and even a new set of finer wheels. As it stands it's a runner and has been a little sideline fun to get it there.

If you've enjoyed this,  show the love.
