The “Maori Chief” Model
The “Maori Chief” Model.
Illustration No. 4, the “Maori Chief,” is of the 4-6-2 free lance design, with a gauge of 5 ½ inches. I am afraid it would take up too much valuable space at this juncture to give a full description of the making of the “Maori Chief,” but if readers are interested I should be only too pleased to supply details at a later date.
The building of the models described above has given the writer endless pleasure—for a minimum expenditure of money. The models, for the most part, were fabricated from odds and ends of material found in my workshop, an expenditure of less than £3 sufficing to cover the parts purchased for any one model.
