The Quarry Hunslets - Alice Class
ALICE CLASS – Quarry Hunslet Saddle Tank – 16mm scale model kit.
The Alice Class Quarry Hunslet comes in both 32mm & 45mm gauge, with or without a cab
This kit comes complete with the necessary laser cut chassis and cab parts resin cast parts and 3D printed parts and now laser cut steel cranks, along with wheels, motor & gears. Also included are all the metal parts required for axle bearings, slide-bars, etc. Together with all the screws, nuts and bolts need to complete your model.
All you need to complete the kit is glue (I recommend a Superglue), paint and a filler (body filling is not necessary, but does improve the finish of the model).
To make the locomotive operable, batteries and a switch will also be required. This can be as simple as disposable batteries and an on/off switch, but my models can also be built with rechargeable batteries and radio control operation. This choice is down to the individual builder.
there are 2 options 30 to 1 ratio nylon gears or 46 to 1 ratio metel gear, within our unique gearbox design
Binnie Engineering 29mm wheels
30 to 1 nylon gears 3 volt motor
46 to 1 metel gears 3-6 volt motor
32mm & 45mm gauge
(Some changes had to be made to make it 45mm so it’s not the same as the 32mm at the smokebox end)
will need batteries and electrics to operate
For further information regarding the building of my kits including electronic control, please refer to the BUILDING INSTRUCTIONS page.
