    There have ben many conversions of the popular and dimensionally accurate Airfix auto-coach since its first appearance.However, despite previous accounts and even a specialist conversion kit, things are not always as simple as they seem. The R-T-R model falls between two stools so Scalefour Society members Mike Jolly and Mike Clarkehave each taken different diagrams and produced some really worthwhile results. Mike Jolly tackled the A30 using the hitherto scant published information, whilst out of their frustration and after some heavy coaxing (and heavy hints!), Mike Clarke subsequently sought out the prototypes and carried out a thorough investigation and built the A28. Thus the myth that the GWR has been exhaustively catered for in existing publications is exploded again.

    Comprehensive, step-by-step conversion details including drawings and prototype photos.
