Hornby OO Peckett with MS Sound

Hornby Peckett with Zimo MS sound and stay-alive

Kit: MS490 for hard-wiring; Minnow4 speaker; 2x 470uF Flat Tantalums

Didn't get a set of photos showing the kit clearly, but the MS490 goes vertical at the front, with the Minnow4 tucked just behind it at the top. Suitably insulated with Kapton tape or electrical tape to hold everything in place and protect it.

Here you can see the location for the 2 Tantalums on the side.

Some grinding of the inside of the metal body is required to get the kit to slide in without snagging.

Example 1

Here the final results, actually a lovely solid model, and with the small stay-alive it even runs fairly reliably.

Here is another Peckett with similar kit, but this time with firebox glow light added too.
