I seem to be getting somewhere with the chassis etc now.

 

I have done the brakes on the inner chassis and this is now all ready for the connecting parts to the outer frames. It would of been nicer if the pull rods etc were in etch nickelsilver, I could of changed but I want to make it as close to the way it was designed. If it was for me I would probably spend the time.

Now I have to make the link between the part above and this part of the braking system, so that I can remove the inner chassis. I have also got to remake the levers and pull rod ends for the brake cross shaft as there is only one in the kit and I am not overly impressed with it anyway, also pictured.

You will also see the rear steps have been added. You may notice short lengths of small angle attached to the frames, these will hold the sanding pipes.

Next up is the front steps. Theses folded up and fitted quite nicely except one side of one of the step was etched through on the fold. Easy to remedy and only added a little time. The bracket for the front vacuum cylinders was also added not visible in this shot. I also had to scratch build the gaurd irons, these I would of thought should of been on the etch. This is all the brass work done on the two sets of frames. Now just adding the whitemetal castings. The Frames have already started to gain some weight with the few castings that have been added.

Thanks George.

It is not so much that I wanted a Gronk. More the case of the kit was cheap at the time. I have been putting it off for a long time, mainly using the excuse I had no wheels, instead of buying some..
