Scale 7 adventures

Tales from a Scale7 workbench.

Ivatt 2 valve gear

This will be a collection of articles from my Scale7 modelling. The photo shows scratch built valve gear for an Ivatt Class 2. The valve gear where possible has been machined or filed from steel stock, I use steel where possible because I think it looks the right colour, nickel valve gear tends to look too "yellow" for me. I'll have to take a couple of photo's to show the motion bracket attachment. The slide bars have a little dove-tail joint on the end so the motion bracket can easily be removed.
