Following the success of their first two EasiChas kit for the Bachmann LNER A1 and Hornby A4, Brassmasters have introduced an EasiChas for the Hornby LNER A3.
The EasiChas provides a simple conversion from OO to either EM or P4 by utilising the existing chassis and mechanism with an added etched wrapper to produce a sprung finescale chassis for the locomotive and tender. The kit costs £45 plus £2.50 UK post and packing and includes additional detailing components for the A3 - replacement front frames, reach rod, footplate brackets, guard irons and German-type smoke deflectors. This is also available separately for £5 plus £1.50 UK post and packing.
Also new is a range of bogie suspension units which provide a rapid, easy to assemble and robust mechanism to provide compensation on coach bogies. These are priced at £6 per pair and are available in six different types covering wheelbases from 7 foot to 10 foot.
Finally, new 4mm etched windows have been introduced for the Scalescenes engine shed, windows and rooflights at £4 each, and for the signalbox at £5 which includes signal levers and steps in addition to the main windows.
Full details of these and all of their other products can be obtained by sending an sae to Brassmasters at:
