Dapol O Gauge Terrier with MS Sound

Dapol O Gauge Terrier with MS Sound

Kit: MS440C; IceCube28X18X08

A very brief revisit to Dapol's O gauge Terrier here, to show Zimo MS kit being fitted.

Example 1

4 screws removed and the Terrier's body slides off easily. 21pin DCC socket with solder points for speaker, and the firebox flicker lighting unit wired on.

Example 1

Our first job is to attach the IceCube speaker to the appropriate pads in the model. The pads are not marked, but they are the unused pair at this end.

Example 1 Example 1

We are also going to add a bi-colour lamp on the front of this model, so we add wires to the appropriate feet for common positive (blue), F0F (white) and F0R (yellow) connections.

Example 1 Example 1

The MS440D is plugged in, and the sample 1000uF capacitor connected.

Example 1

The lamp is a little tricky to add, as the front plate is metal, so some care is requried making the hole and feeding the 3 lamp wires through.

Example 1 Example 1

The lamp wires are connected, including a protective resistor on the common positive blue wire.

Example 1

Speaker and capacitor are wrapped in Kapton to avoid shorting out on anything, and carefully positioned with BlackTack in the boiler.
