Rushby's Resins is a small volume, short run supplier of resin kits for 009. I choose prototypes which appeal to me, that I'd like multiples of and where I can see little likelihood of them being the target of the professional and semi-professional kit manufacturers.

This model was inspired by the Deutz supplied in 1928 to the British Mannesman Tube Company for their Newport works in South Wales. Those familiar with this particular locomotive will realise that huge liberties have been taken with my interpretation, some forced by the use of the high quality yet budget priced Kato chassis and some by the limitations of the home casting process.

The result is a loco with all the character of a Deutz but not an accurate copy of any particular example.
