Slater's All Third - Detail no-one will ever see #2

Posted by RedgateModels , 30 July 2014 - - - - - - · 419 views

Luggage racks now have their netting - strips of carefully cut up mozzy netting bought off eBay. I have enough netting to do the racks from the entire Slater's production until the end of time :lol:





AND FINALLY - the door ventilators are fixed and I've also cemented the top plastikard strip in place. I hope to start drilling and tapping said strip...

Interior almost done. I've painted the seats, fitted them to that partitions, soldered up the luggage rack brackets and fitted them, printed out some railway type posters on sticky labels and painted the mirrors with silver paint.





just got to add the netting then I can get on with the exterior fittings ahead of the masking off and paint!

Still not...

Slater's All Third - Pull Rods and a Start on the Body

Posted by RedgateModels , 22 July 2014 - - - - - - · 489 views

Last night I refitted the wheels and made up and fitted the brake pull rods.



I can't remember if I did this on the Brake Third, but all the linkages on the pull rods are pinned and would pivot if the vacuum cylinder moved! Just a lick of paint and they are done :)

Today I spent my lunch hour cutting ten sets of seats out of their sprues ready for ass...

Slater's All Third - Chassis Painted

Posted by RedgateModels , 21 July 2014 - - - - - - · 457 views

The target for the weekend was to get the chassis painted and that was achieved, eventually ......

here's the chassis all cleaned and prepped for primer



So, Sunday morning after the storms the sun came out and so did the paint - far too early as it was way too humid still and the primer went on like talcum powder. After an hour in Superstrip and anot...

Can we take our work outside Miss?

Posted by RedgateModels , 18 July 2014 - - - - - - · 486 views

It was far too flippin' hot to work in the loft/workshop/man cave today, so this evening I decamped to the patio to get the last three footboards folded up for the Slater's coach



And jolly successful it was too, all folded up, but I ran out of light before the axlebox cut-aways were filed in the final lower board. A job for tomrrow :)

Well, a huge thanks to David at Slater's as a package with a replacement sprue was waiting for me when I got home - I only posted off the stamps yesterday, so he must have trusted me :)

So the truss rod, support, axleboxes, springs and footboard hangers fitted tonight on the other side



also here's a shot of the gas cylinder and vacuum cylinder work f...

Slater's All Third Part 3

Just a quick update, the truss rod, axleboxes, springs and footboard hangers fitted to one side



I have hit a bit of a stop now as the truss rod support for the other side was broken - I've contacted Slaters and David is sending me a new casting in exchange for a couple of stamps :)

I'll find something else to do on it I'm sure while I am waiting for...

Slater's All Third Part 2

After another couple of sessions we have a rolling chassis (well it would roll if I free off the bearings - a job for when they are removed for chassis painting)





I'm deviating from the order of things now as I will be making as start on the springs, axleboxes and footboards next. Save the delicate underpinnings until all the heaver engineering is d...

Slaters 7C04 GWR S9 4 Wheel all Third Coach

Posted by RedgateModels , 08 July 2014 - - - - - - · 689 views

OK, so as I have hinted in SUs etc I have decided to take a break from the layout to get the second coach built in time for RMweb Live! Last night I spent a productive hour getting the basic frames together.





This is an old kit I have had for some time - bought second hand off Ian Morton, so the etches are quite tarnished. I will need to clean the p...

A space to call my own

Posted by RedgateModels , 04 May 2014 - - - - - - · 584 views

Spent some time this weekend sorting out and unpacking in the man cave.

So around the room from left to right we have the workbench and storage



Clear area for setting up layout boards for work with layout storage behind



Finally tool storage and bookshelves :)
