Aster Gauge 1 Live Steam GWR King Class 4-6-0 '6000' 'King George V'
One of the beautiful locomotives, built by Fulgurex for Aster. This particular model has been factory built and is No. 092 from the 1990 run.
The model is meths fired and comes in a custom made wooden carrying box.
The loco came to us in need a few minor repairs. Below is a list of what was wrong and how it has been repaired. All have been professionally done and most are now unnoticeable, unless pointed out.
Wheel tyres loose: The wheel tires are assembled so that there is a nylon band between the tyres and spokes. On one, the band had snapped with the tyres loose on others. These have all been fully cleaned using methylated spirit, cleaned, and then re-assembled using Araldite between the tyre and nylon band. This is now unnoticeable.
Loose front bell: This has been drilled, tapped and neatly screwed in place
Front bogie repair: The front bogie is in two parts, a front and a back, with them overlapping and being bolted together. One side was missing the tiny bolt so this has been drilled, tapped and screwed back together (again, not noticeable)

Superb detailing throughout
Overall condition is very good, considering the model is now 30 years old.
There is the odd minor paint chip - most noticeably that to the right hand side (when looking from the cab) of the smoke box door.
There is a slight dent and scratch to the cab roof.
The other slight flaw is that the boiler bands have some sun fading towards the top of the model.
There are of course the above repairs also.
Although this item is not tested by ourselves, we have been assured by it's previous owner that it is an excellent and smooth runner.
Furthermore, we are happy to provide this model with one of our Ellis Clark Trains 6 month mechanical warranties
