Tender Process

More work carried out on the tender to allow a satisfactory mating between the chassis and the main body. This involved removing a lot of material fore and aft to accommodate the frame ends.
The forward end is now attached by an 8BA screw and the rear is retained by a plastic lug which is attached to the reconstructed buffer beam.
I suspect more material will need to be removed from the side frames though as the axle ends are still a bit neat on them. Not a great deal to be done now until the wheels arrive. After that, brake gear and detail fittings.
