The Allerton is the most complex and accurately detailed kit Model Trailways has ever produced. Hundreds of cleanly cast Britannia metal pieces weigh in at nearly six pounds to duplicate every component of the original pumper. We provide a photo-etched brass sheet for spark arrestor and coal buckets, plus photo-etched stainless steel for boiler walls and nameplate. Ready-to-use wheel hubs are machined aluminum. The kit also includes flexible hoses, brass wire and rod, split rings, and clear plastic pieces for the headlight and hand lamps. Wooden parts are replicated in fine-grained laser-cut basswood. Five sheets of plans with blueprint quality drawings show every detail with left and right side views, exploded perspectives, wheel assembly patterns, and color guides. Sixty-four page illustrated instruction manual explains every step of construction from start to finish.
