ACFI water feed heater conversion kit available in 4mm/00 Gauge for Hornby A1/A3 model - Niu Models

My ACFI water feed heater kit, as fitted to 'The White Knight' and 'Shotover', is now available.

The kit is in 4mm/00 Gauge and is designed to fit the current Hornby range of loco drive A1s and A3s, and is shown in the photos below fitted to Hornby's 'Book Law' model.

The kit includes the ACFI pump, ACFI support bracket, zenith separator, boiler feed clear and smokebox mixing chamber. It also come with a pair of etched nameplates for which ever loco you choice.

Brass rod (1mm, 0.8mm, 0.5mm) is required to for the pipe work along with two small bits of 0.25mm plasticard for the smoke box flanges.

The kit retails at £19.50 + postage.

To order email Niu Models at niumodels@gmail.com.

Al: I'm not sure if your digital device has invasive, fallible and unhelpful "auto-correct" but may I suggest that you carefully check the words as reproduced in both the title and the text of the above post?

Much clearer now that it's a conversion kit rather than a conversation kit, with a Zenith separator rather than a "severs tor", whatever one of those is. Would that boiler feed "clear" thingy be a clack by the way?
