B.R.STANDARD CLASS 5 4-6-0 LOCOMOTIVE

I was thinking of investing in drawings and castings for the 7 1/4" BR Standard Class 5 from Horley Miniature locomotives by Jim Vass. As there has been a few comments regarding discrepancies in drawings, I was interested to find out if anyone had previously built this model and were there too many issues with the drawings or the build itself

Would it be a good idea for you gents to do your experiences of your builds as articles in the magazine how you purchase, got on with problems and how you arrive at doing what you do. Achievements and more. Not just for one magazine issue but over a period.
Surely this then would encourage those who are at the edge of the hobby.
There are some splendid locomotives and rolling stock about but there is very little about the builds.
