Not quite a blow by blow account .... but here goes



Definately need the extra glasses.

Minimal flash on the kit, so let the battle begin

1st step was to glue the chassis members to the floor.

As the instructions point out check for the eject pin mouldings, and trim smooth.

Then using the locating pins glue the two together.



Next glue up the sides and ends to form the box



Once formed into a box the floor


Next up the axel boxes & W irons



The axel box is made from 4 plastic parts and a brass wheel bearing. The assebly freely moves up / down in the W iron (providing you dont get glue on the whole lot).

The four assemblies are then glued into place along with the sole bars.





And now the brakes



I got this wrong - well wrong......

And would do too much damge correcting the fault.

The mechanisim for the dual brake leves are best made up off the model, installed then glued up.

Never having made these up beforem, it took some time trying to work out what went whrer and how, the second side flew through once I'd fathomed out what went where.





More to follow - need to take more pics.

Paul

Yes,
there was some colourful language as well. I think we were both talking the same language.:giggle: I've not checked to see which of my wagons have the same brake set up ....... none hopefully as they looked like a real nightmare.
looks good though.:thumbs:

Yeah, it was a bit of a challenge, but worth it - I think.



Buffer shanks added - to allow painting without having to mask the buffer heads.


And the view so far

Paul. Great build sequence of the van your well organised :tophat: I like that bench top work tray too need to find me one of those out here.

Shows how a quality kit goes together so well and that O scale is just as easy to model as OO may be easier as the parts are bigger making it easier to hold whilst putting together and harder to loose the parts because you can see them :mutley2:

Nice work :thumbs:

Hi Chris

The tray is the humbrol workstation

https://www.amazon.co.uk/Humbrol-AG9156-Work-Station/dp/B008424S90/ref=sr_1_1?s=kids&ie=UTF8&qid=1464478333&sr=1-1&keywords=humbrol+workstation

Standard A4 cutting matt also fits.

I still found all the brake gear fiddly - finges like sausages, and forever changing glasses to try and see what I was doing, think I need to change to 5" gauge - no Toto, just kidding

Paul

Thanks Paul will look one out down under someone must have one in stock.

The biggest problem with 5" gauge is the the kitchen table just isn't big enough I've tried it way to small and the trouble you get into when the authority' Arives home :facepalm:

Nice work Paul. I would not have noticed your boo-boo if you didn't mention it ! Like the fact that the individual parts are pre-coloured.
Does the van sides need a wash under some warm soapy water to remove the releasing agent, or is it just the light or dust from sanding the individual parts ??

Cheers, Gary.

Ooops, maybe should have washed them after the light sanding :whatever:

The mouldings were very crisp, and I only had to remove a little flash off two parts.

I thought I'd best own up to the brake issue, as this part was the only frustrating part of the build, and one I had worked out how to assemble the +8 plastic parts it was a doddle(ish) :giggle:

Now Ian, before you start casting aspertions, my toe is dipping, Toto, Chris and Kimbo are pushing :giggle:

I actually found the build quite enjoyable - made a change from buildings, the misconception is that everything is bigger so less fiddly, reality is it's bigger so lets add more fiddly details :mutley2:

Got you Paul yours and Toto's build shows that unlike the smaller kits you need more than 1 type of adhesive and technique. I can sense a tutorial on track building coming up.

Ian:facepalm:
