Zach's Custom Corner
#1
Welcome Zach’s Custom Corner, where I show off the latest updates I have made to my TOMY/Plarail/TrackMaster trains. This includes repaints, minor details/modifications and others.

Today's modification is one I did to my Plarail Spencer.

As we all know, the connection between him and his tender is done through the stock-standard hook/loop system.
What I have done is I took out the couplings between him and the tender and took a bread tie I had lying around, and used it to not only 'permanently' attach them, but to also close the glaring gap between Spencer and his tender.

I also plan to do this with my plarail 2014/15 Gordon and James and Donald/Douglas (whenever I get them)

Off to a good start. I did something similar with mine (and my 2012 Edward), only I used a paper clip and kept the tender's hook coupling. For Emily, however, I replaced both couplings with an eye one to make the connection cleaner, more reliable and permanent.

Looking forward to seeing your other planned projects, and I like when someone opens this type of thread. Carry on.

Excellent idea Splo and the color of the bread tie is perfect. Smile

Oh, and be sure to keep an eye out for more mods, hopefully in the near future, as well as some "recent purchases" (which will be posted in a different thread, under the "show us what you bought" forum)
