Well, now the forum seams to be working I will atempt to put a workbench back together.
I have just painted my DJH skinhead 31 into 31418. I will wait a bit for the varnish to harden before weathering and then putting the windows in.
I have also got my JLTRT 26 to the painting stage. Attached pics show one problem to overcome was how to fit the square bogie safety loops and still be able to get everything apart. I glued a casting into the chassis on one side only. Then you can slide the bogie in at an angle and secure the other side retainer in with a 12 Ba screw into a nut glued into the chassis. With these bogie safety brackets in place the model will go round 6ft radius curves but if you want it to go round tighter curves I would probably cut the little extensions back to clear them. JLTRT made a nice brake pipe casting to go on the side of the bogie. Still need a couple of pipes made from wire though.
