Update on the Wagons

Well tonight saw a couple of free hours, I had bad day at work and SWMBO felt sorry for me, and suggested that I do some modelling instead of cutting the grass :thumbs, so to work on the wagons I went. This has been a while since I started to collect all the information for these wagons (thanks to all helped ;-)) and I have read and looked at the drawings/plans and photographs for a couple of weeks, so now that I understand the instructions that came with the wagon, I can start.

First job was cutting out a section from each end, to do this I drilled a hole in the middle, ans then drilled a couple of smaller holes in each corner, after this I then filed out the rest of the plastic, to leave the square hole, then I filed of the sprue's that where on the top x3 on each wagon, a light rub with a sanding block, leaves me with a smooth top, I will be building both wagons at the same time, so each job will be x2, then the wagon bodies had a little swim in the malt vinegar.









Please comment on any aspect of the build.

Cleaning off greasiness or something?

It's to give them that "Aged Oak" look, Mike. That's why the vinegar has to be malt. :mutley:mutley

After the body had it's little soak in the vinegar, and was then washed off and left to dry, it was time to start work on one end, but first the bottom of the hoppers was fixed in place, then it was a case of taking most of the bits out, and working out where they went.

The brass was then cut from the fret, and cleaned up, the platform was easy, but the detail around the end of the hood was very tricky, but after a couple of dry fits,and then some careful filing, it all fitted, so although it was not as the instructions say I went ahead and glued it all in place.

Still lots to do, just on this one end, more to follow soon.
