Midland Railway 3F 0-6-0T

LMS 3F 0-6-0T 'jinty' - model in 7mm scale (O Gauge) by David L O Smith

A 7mm scale (O Gauge) model of a Midland Railway 3F 0-6-0T (sometimes colloquially known as a 'Jinty') in early LMS livery.  The model is entirely scratch built (apart from whitemetal castings for the chimney and dome from ABS, and wheels from Slater's) with bodywork of plastic and frames from nickel silver; all other components and details were made from scratch.  My original intention was to have a plain and robust model that could be used at a moment's notice on my planned outdoor railway in the wet; in practice it turned out as well detailed as my other models so I might just as well have made it out of brass and nickel silver, as usual.
