    I've put the order in this morning for two of each so I should (Hopefully) have four kits by Xmas.

    Paul has chimed in for a 26 as well and I'll take one of each. Looks like 3 x 26's and a 27.

    Cheers

    Artwork confimed as received by etching company, lost wax ordered so today marked the start of the drawing the masters for the white metal. Some etchings still need testing such as the shroud for the primary springs.

    Here are the spring, brake cylinder and sandbox. 7.8.jpg 7.9.jpg

    Now I'm both impressed and worried, I think I need to ask Santa for some asbestos lined gloves, as my finger tips look to be in peril :avatar:

    Tieing up the loose ends now and relieved to see that everything seems to fit tigeher very nicely. There's one poxy roof rib that's causing annoyance but over all I think it'll be ok.

    I had PIAA on my monster!

    Fell over this tonight while I was trying to find if there was a way of virtually bending metal in the CAD program. So that's my homework for the next kit.

    Ignore the ad.
