Just a small update to show the re manufacture of the front end.

 

I needed to remake the buffer as the original did not survive the re riveting. I have assembled the front frames, front footplate and the buffer beam. This will be fixed to the cylinders when I have them fitted to the main frames.

Having made the cylinder profiles. I decided to make new covers as I did not like the etched ones with the kit. There were to many rivets, and the straps down each side are too wide.

I also made a spacer. These were all formed and fitted together. Now they can be fitted to the frames.

The next job will be adding the slide bars and motion bracket. The two parts so far fit together nicely though still to be soldered.
