  1. I don't have a lot in the way of photos being mainly a carriage person but I do have these if of use: B1: N2: Henry Oakley: A1 GA: J6 GA:
  2. Armed with that information these might help as well:
  3. For the V2s the door stop was built in to the door hinges.
  4. I started a crosskit earlier in the year using Comet Gresely D186 sides with an MJT floorpan. To achieve a removable floor and fixed roof I did the following. Marked and drilled a mounting hole in each end of the floorpan: The ends were snapped off and a length of brass angle soldered on including a brass nut: The ends could then be screwed to the floorpan simulating the original floorpan design albeit with removable ends: The Comet sides had a length of brass strip soldered to along the top edge to act as a straightener and giv

  10. So they are. I did read the earlier posts as well so should have spotted them.
  11. The rear drivers have a different type of spring:

  13. Photos on Flickr suggest it is a strap that is bolted to the top of the tanks.
