I have got around to building the JLTRT 2251, so what do you get in the box?
The etches and the resin tender body, the brass etches are.020" and the N/S chassis etch .030"
The brass castings.
The W/M castings.
So now on with some work,
The frames as supplied
The frames with the horn-guides cut out and the horn guides fitted and drilled 0.6 for the safety chains. 4mm to the rear of the brake pivots.
The frame spacers, I have missed out one in the photo, it fits to the front below the one with the big hole,
One of the spacers has been modified for the wire to run through, I'm doing the tender with split axle pick ups (that could be fun)
The spacers in place, the small front spacer has been deliberately put in place the wrong way round, this is the inside support for the water pick-up gear.
The out side support for the water pick-up gear and the brake operating shaft. This to has to be fitted the wrong way round. So I can see some fun when I have to fit the draw bar pin.
The outer frames, on all the other GWR tender that I have done the frames run to the front as in the one that has the hatched marks on it, so does any one know if these frames do the same.
More to follow.
