This one shows the frame in position inside the box - trial fit only at this stage.

The instrument shelf has been fabricated from nickel silver strip. the shelf is laminated from pieces of 3/4 & 5mm x 0.3mm strip whilst the supports are made up in a jig from 1mm x 0.3mm strip. The round part is formed from modified High Level 2mm CSB etches... the only thing of appropriate size I could find in my metal stock.

I am in the process of making the block instruments, signal diagram display etc to populate the shelf....watch this space.

Hi Rob,

 

Excellent work, looks just like the pictures we were looking at! An infinite improvement over the Springside alternative!

 

Best Wishes

Looking forward to seeing the working needles and bells - no, don't, I'm only joking!

 

Exquisite modelling.
