Nigel Burkin con Fine Tuning and Maintaining 00 Gauge Models
Locomotive and layout maintenance is an essential aspect of railway modelling, but one that is little understood by modellers, especially those new to the hobby or returning after a long absence. Fine Tuning and Maintaining 00 Gauge Models shows you all of the techniques required to introduce new models to your layout, run them in, fit all of the parts supplied with them and undertake repairs where necessary. It includes advice on how to carry out routine maintenance, shows the reader techniques for fine-tuning performance and discusses the important issues surrounding conversion to the finer scales. Chapters include: running in new models; fitting factory-supplied parts; rolling stock and locomotive wheels; mechanical enhancements; simple enhancements; keeping the layout running smoothly; ongoing maintenance and repairs. 00 gauge is one of the most popular gauges within the hobby and this book should have wide reaching appeal. Supported by 415 superb colour photographs and detailed instructions.
