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.

About maxstafford60093

Scotsman in exile. Lover of Scotland's railways, land, people and culture. Always got an ear for new and interesting music. Politically of the left and most definitely repelled by the shallow and narcissistic. An unlikely jazz-cat mod rocker with punk tendencies; a bit 1968, a bit 1977 with a distracting overdub of 1958... Most often found outdoors with my four legged buddy!
