LMS/BR Black 5 Inc Caprotti Variants
Slaters Reference in brackets
This kit is a redesign of an earlier Black 5, (Which is also available through Acme), but this kit will enable the builder to build all the variants within the class, including the Caprotti (high and low running plates), and the L.W.B and the Ivatt prototypes (the kits is of very high specifications and detail, with the provision to make the Caprotti valve gear shafts rotate). This is not the only kit of this prototype on the market, but if you are interested in building a 'Black 5' of any variant, then this is probably the most highly detailed one available.
