#16 Coming together, almost

Sides and seats are in place but I've not quite delivered on my weekend completion target for #16. I blame a TV "Blitz" with SWMBO to finish off "Endeavour Series 7" last evening which extended way beyond a reasonable hour (for me anyway).

My now standard routine for getting the Red and Black Moquette came up well on the Ratio seats, I'm glad now I documented the sequence of painting last time, made it easy this time around.



Even with just 25g added ballast the coach feels to be a good weight and I still have passengers, fittings, couplings etc. to add to the project.

Hi Colin.   Very good. I gave up my TV a couple of years ago, what with the soaps and many repeats of them, it was too much to take. Best wishes Kevin

Do you re-cast the wheel weights Colin - they don't look like the type on my car ........................ :hmm

I could go back to see but do you get them from tyre depots or buy them new ?

Dinky little coaches and looking very good too. :thumbs

Peter,

If you look closely in Post #98 you can see the under-seat view of the 5g weight and lower down the cross section view.
They come in strips typically a 5-10-5g combination 18mm wide about 2.8mm thick. I'd describe them as flat rectangular "lozenges" with thin sections between the individual weight units so they can be cut.

The backs have a tacky polymer of some nature so they're designed to be glued flat, presumably on "mag" type of wheel rims. My local tyre shop is a handy source but being lead they're getting harder to find these days.

When they run out I've a big lump of lead, is that soft enough that I could take a razor saw to it to cut off tranches?


Colin

Yes I saw the weights in Post  #98 Colin - I just wondered if the weights fitted or you'd had to "doctor" them ............  Obviously they fit without any additional work ...................... :thumbs

Just a little trimming along the thin section edges to help them slide into the available slots. Dab of super glue to hold in place.
