My soldering skills are appalling so I need to buy one.embarrassed

If I may make a suggestion. Learn to solder it isn't hard.

We used to solder all our own tanks up when I was fifteen. I still have my Henly Solon 75 Watt iron that I bought then (1955) it still works.

Brian Winch has an article on soldering on the forum

And I am sure that I have an article on making tanks somehwere on thios forum. If not PM me and I can email you a copy.

Thanks for the swift replies. I will give Dens models a go. But I think having had a look at the article on soldering I might give that a go as well.

thanks again

Neil

The wheels won't fall off the undercarriage either. Collets? You can keep 'em
