Mallard Models D16 Kit Instructions Needed

Post by Muzza » Sat Aug 18, 2007 8:09 am

Hello,

Today, I purchased a largely untouched Mallard Models kit of an LNER D16 for the princely sum of $5 (around £2).

Unfortunately, no instructions were included. Of course I can refer to photos & such, but as this is my first attempt at building a brass kit, the instructions would certainly come in handy.

If you can point me in the direction of where I can get a copy, you may prevent me from butchering the kit beyond all recognition.

Cheers,


Murray

Thanks Morgan.

Yes I know the price was great. Thats why I was prepared to get it without knowing if it was complete. (I forgot to mention that it included the tender).

Going through it now, it looks like only the instructions are missing.

I'll get onto Dave Smith.

Thanks

Murray

Hi Phil

Thanks for offering to snap some images of the instructions. Sadly I was unsuccessful on the platform and the D16 kit eluded me :(

Thus I won't be needing any instructions this time...

thanks anyway
Chris

Hi Chris,

Sorry, I've only just seen your message & sorry you didn't get the kit.

Yes, I did get the instructions. Happy to share with anyone who needs them.
