SNCF 16 tonners

Postby iak » Thu Aug 19, 2010 11:25 am

Some production shots...
As you can see some fettling was needed with the floor.
The brakes are old casting from ABS I think.
These need more work and a lot of distressing :devil:

The body work needs rusted holes on one - ideas chaps?

Needle jammed into a dowel handle, heat on gas stove, insert into plastic wagon side whilst hot. Bit hit and miss and I guess that any plastic raised by the process will need shaving off, but it should give irregularity that would be missing if the side was simply drilled.

Forgotten that these two have had some brake v's added - cranked as required.
OK heck of a use for the Exactoscale sprung chassis but hey, plenty of time to find a use for them.

So one remembers you have a NWSL Chopper II
You produce lots of wee slivers of plastic [and take a chunk oot of your thumb!]
And what for? Well a few hours of chopping and fixing has added some details twixt solebars and bodysides.
Piccies will follow later in the week ;)

What ever happened to the piccies??? :lol:
Ahem, I digress - significant progress of late sees the brake gear done and even those pesky sheet loops are nearly done.
Dang I'll really need to sort some piccies out now :lol:

The brake levers are Ambis ones and are correct.
The lever guide is a spare Craig Welsh one.
