Austrains 442 class staff exchanger

Hi Guy's

Just been doing a bit of work on a couple of my Austrains 442 class models. Just thought to share how I modified an ILM 80 class staff exchanger to fit the 442 class. The 442 class staff exchanger is a little wider than the 80 class so I had to cut the sides off the exchangers and add some styrene to the outside of the exchanger. Photo's may tell the story a little better.
Then it was just a matter of fitting it to the Jumbo.

Anyway this is the end result. The 80 class exchanger isn't 100% correct but it looks a lot better than the flat plate that was there at the start.

Cheers Justin Moy
