Hi Geoff,

That jig is something else ! It would have to make gluing wagons, buildings etc square a hell of a lot easier. Well done !

Petermac, you probably have seen these before, but I'll share it regardless ; http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Snap-Glue-Set-Your-third-hand-while-building-kits-/300430234327?pt=FR_YO_JeuxJouetd_TrainsElectriques&hash=item45f30992d7#ht_3279wt_932

Cheers, Gary.

I have one of those Gary and they are fine for card buildings but the magnets are a bit too strong to use with more delicate plastic wagon kits.

Hi folks the jigs that I have made were done on the quiet whilst my boss was away on his annual holiday so he has absolutely no idea that these where made and it would not be good for me if he ever found out so if I was to make anymore they would have to be done through the company and this would make them rather expensive as it took me about 2 hours  to do the machining this would improve if a large number were made say 200 off. But as it is doing 1 or 2 result in £70 plus materials plus vat not cheep when produced in small numbers.:oops:




now in the future there I maybe able to make some more jigs as they are not gauge reliant they could be used for either ngauge or oo
but it could be some time before I could do this if I can do some more jigs I will let you know unfortunately it will be next year when the boss goes on holiday again and we all get to make our home work :cool wink
all the best and sorry I can not help at the moment
Geoff

Hi guys a couple of shots of my jigs that didn't transfer last time something wrong with the file
 


then these are the finished LMS/BR 12 ton box vans ready for the paint shop haven't quite made up my mind weather they will be BR or LMS when painted but one also has roof vents unfortunately ran out of vents for the second van they are in the carpet little so and soes
:thud




next project is the society kit which is a twin pack but there are enough parts to make three vans all you need is a extra chassis either as southern railway or B.R.S.R

all the bits in the box just need some buffers at a later date
thanks for looking
Geoff

Nice jig, nice vans and nice build Geoff - what more can I say  :thumbs:thumbs:thumbs

Something that I've always wondered ......  When they go to the paint shop - and then, only if you spray paint them - do you take the wheels off and mask off the bearing cups ?

It's often said, "...............was sprayed blue ........." but, in practical terms, I wonder how you keep paint off the tyres and out of the bearings ..........:roll::roll::roll:

When people weather locos, they might say "the wheels were sprayed with a mucky black" but I do wonder how they spray the whole wheel given that it won't turn on a loco unless it's under power and how do they keep paint out of the motor ........? :hmm

p.s. You'll guess that I've never spray painted wagons or locos although I do have a bright shiny airbrush in a nice solid looking box .............:roll:

Hi peter as I am quite new to this kit building lark it will be a little difficult so some care will be needed and some masking etc and for future projects I will not get so carried away and leave it so the chassis can be separated for painting this should make life much easier

this is one of the jigs in use the card is there to protect the plastic from the screws and as you can see it makes life so much easier than needing three pairs of hands.


then the finished vans once again ready for painting fortunately this time I did not get carried away and left of the chassis so as to be able to paint them one at a time and not have to mask everything whilst spraying the van body
bye for now
Geoff

Absolutely... I plan on doing some of the society kits one day and it's good to see them being made.

Back again with more photos of the next project





sorry folks uploaded these photos in the wrong order they are the GWR Meat vans mica,s A/B again society kits and as usual a very good kit but I chickened out and chose to model the A version as these do not need the tricky wire handrails:oops: having said that there are another 5 to be done yet the only problem that I had with these was the fact that I got a bit over confident and rushed things a lot so some of the joints leave a lot to be desired (note to self slow down and do a much better job with the next project) and as usual these are in the que for a visit to the paint shop will have to get my finger out and at least get some primer on them

Here we go again last shot for now

Hi these are the society kit of the BR25 ton anhydrite hopper this pack has enough parts to make 5 also these look a little more tricky to put together will probably need several pairs of hands as the jigs will not be much use for them so will need to be much more carefull with them wish me luck
All the best
Geoff

Hi folks some more photos for you to see said in my last post that I didn't think there would be a use for the jigs looks like I was wrong
  as you can see I was able to clamp one of the sides and fix the base in place.

this is stage one with both sides fixed to the base of the hopper next stage is to fix the ends to these
 stage two with the ends in place and quite a lot of cleaning up to do and some filler is needed as I should have made a much better job when assembling the sides and bases together

stage three still needing filler to tidy things up but other than that ready to join the que for access to the paint shop cricky they aint half going to be busy when I get around to doing some painting one day soon hopfuly fingers crossed etc etc.
 will be back soon
Geoff
