Classic UK Minitrix Models  -  Inside
Under the Body

The Britannia.  Note this is the early version of the model with the smaller, solid front bogies. 

The chassis seems to be the same one that is used on the later Mallard and Flying Scotsman.  The bottom plate which retains the axles on this model is solid metal.  The Mallard and Scotsman plates are plastic and have the brake mouldings to add to the realism.  The plastic versions are fragile, however, and can break around the screw holes.
Detail of the front part of the chassis.
Detail of motor and tender.  The tender is the same as that found on the Evening Star.
This is the only side view that I have of the Mallard Chassis.  Shown here without the valve gear and with a substitute baseplate which does not have the brake mouldings.  The later Britannia model and the equivalent Bodicea both have front bogies which are the same as the ones on this Mallard Chassis.
