Baldwin 50HP Gas Mechanical 7mm
• by Neil Sayer Scale Models
This is a multi-media 7mm scale model of the WW1 gas mechanical tractor. It can be built to either 16.5mm or 14mm gauge. The chassis is nickel silver, the cab in brass, the radiator, fuel tank, gearbox and bonnet are resin castings. Detail parts are lost wax castings.
Please note that wheels and gears are included but a motor is NOT provided. The kit was originally designed for a Mashima 1220 can motor but these are now extremely hard to source. Neil Sayer recommends that a smaller high quality motor with a 1.5mm shaft should also be suitable, as the prototype loco would not be expected to haul significant loads. Modifications to the motor mount may be required depending on the motor used.
