This recent purchase from Mr Gladiator is a present from me to me and I've made a bit of a start on it, so here is a build thread... main frames cut for hornblocks. Well I'm wondering if there is any advantage if the forward driving wheels should remain rigid with soldered bearings and the centre and rear wheels fitted with hornblocks acting in the same way as a compensation beam ? Or is it better that all three wheelsets are fitted to spring? Anyway comments on what chaps think please. Moving on the Stanier 4000gal tender is underway too, I've spring the centre wheels with hornblocks and have drilled for sprung pickups on front and rear wheels. Next job will be to form the side raves but that can wait until light levels improve. Finally for now the etch nameplate set to make 45531 Sir Frederick Harrison.
