Slowly adding the details, glazing, wipers, dividers on side windows domino dots bits and bobs under the headcode.

I've been trying to decide on the best (read cheapest) way of making handrails with brackets, and finally settled on plastic rod.

Start with several short and long lengths



Then after filling a notch in the end of the long pieces a short piece is glued across to make a "T"

When dry the cross bar of the "T" is filed to be flush with the leg, at this point it doesn't look like "T" anymore (see the one on its own on the right)



After drilling holes in the body to push the hand rail holder in the rail is threaded through the ends



The hand rails on the face were much easy, just bend and fit into pre drilled holes

The handrails are now all finished and it has had a light dusting of grime to start the weathering process.

Thanks !

Today I gave the 20 its first test run, fortunately it worked perfectly first time. With hindsight I should probably given it a test run during earlier constructions phases, but all is well that ends well..
