British Rail Main-Line Diesels in 4mm Scale

Regular price £14.00

Spiral-bound (plastic comb), 64 pages long and first published in 1963, this Ian Allan publication on BR Main Line Diesels in 4mm Scale was authored by Russell S. Carter. This is the revised and enlarged edition from 1975, reprinted in 1978

A useful and detailed publication ideal for the railway modeller. Includes scale diagrams of many of the early diesel classes.For the railway modeller (for whom this book will be invaluable), the author notes that it has been somewhat of a problem to cover all combinations of added or removed external equipment, structural modifications, and the variations in livery, regarding the positioning and size of the logo, data panel and shed plate. Therefore the author has endeavoured to show specific locomotives as they have been depicted on photographs available at the time of preparation of the drawings and hopes that this has covered the majority of the differences. 

Board covers, plastic spiral binding, 64 pages, plans & drawings

NB Some damage to lower end of spiral binding and some scuffing to front cover

ISBN: 9780711006171

Due to the high volume of parcels going missing, we are no longer able to send untracked orders via third party mail handling services such as Parcel Motel. We are able to send untracked parcels to bona fide PO Box addresses, friends and family members and to work addresses.

Some countries charge import taxes and we suggest that in these cases, you asked for your order to be tracked so the local taxation authorities can trace your parcel.
