Both sides now have complete sides, only one side hase the top thin cladding though. I needed a break from cutting windows so I have started on the underside trusses.

From experience I have realised when scratch building its always a good idea to have frequent test runs, just in case you get something really wrong that renders the model inoperable. So last night after adding the thin skin top walls to the second side and also altering the bogie positions inwards to suit the underfloor framing a test was in order. I am pleased to report it ran first time no problems.

Looks like it's running well. But I think you've found the length limit those radius curves can handle.

Are you going to make some more coaches when this one is finished. The carriage seems lonely out there all on its own.

Not much to show for tonight's efforts, hinges and guttering.

Today has been one of those Saturdays when I hoped to get a decent bit of modelling time but didn't.

In the 20 mins I did escape to the shed I decided a coat of primer was in order. I find it helps to find what needs attention.
