Update on the Tiger wagons

I have cleaned up all the white metal pieces and worked out where they all go, the int ructions on this kit are really bad, and without the photo's and drawing of the wagon I would be lost, I have worked the both ends tonight, all the pieces are only sitting in there position, but with both ends now having the brake cylinders and brake rods, along with the return springs all cleaned up and ready to fix, these along with the brake distributor, this is only at one end, the other main job was bending the brass platform to shape.

This photo shows the end without the platform all parts are only sitting in place




This photo shows the platform end


 
Next job is the solder the brass parts together, this will make them a lot stronger, along with the buffer beams, and then marking and drilling the holes for the buffers, once that has been done, it will be a case of building up each end, with the last job being adding the hand rails, before that the sides need looking at.

Again any comments

I'm enjoying just going along for the ride too. All those little detaily bits look terrific. If you put any in the wrong places I'll never know.

Alan you are doing a fantastic job of these.  You will never know how many times over the last few years I had got the instructions out and spent the evening puzzling over them before finally admitting defeat again!

Thanks Guys, for the comments, I will try my best to keep you entertained ;-)

Update on the wagon

Tonight I have spent around two hours soldering the buffers onto the floors, and then tidying up the joints, then sticking down all the brakes,vacuum's etc onto both floors, I then started on the handrails, these are so small, I had to be so careful when file the spurs off, this wagon is just so fiddly it's ...................................well starting to be fun, as you see it coming together.

So the photo's don't really look very different, but it is all glued in place except the walkway and hand rail, which will be one of the last thins to add, next is all the detail along the sides, but I might start on the bogie's, just need to go over to the shed and get some wheels, and this is only the first of the wagons, fun this modelling :Happy

Tears will be falling from my eyes , tears of joy :mutleyno that's not true, these wagons are a real challenge, but a steep learning curve at the same time, I won't be posting them when they are finished, far to fragile, guess we might have to meet up up somewhere !!

I'm in the middle of a dream at the moment, and Chris has just asked if I want the other four sent up, to complete at the same time as the two that I already have

:thud

It's not a dream, it's true :hmm:hmm:hmm

You say you have the transfers for all six of them :hmm do you have the wheels as well :question but the main question is ..................................................... the time period I have to finish them, if you aren't in a rush,, then let me think about it .................................................................................................................

.......................................................................................:doublethumbokay lets go for it, after all I've got nothing else to do ;-)

Hi Alan

You might want to consider replacing the chunky handwheels with something finer from Colin Craig. See http://colincraig4mm.co.uk/#/hand-wheels/4532593494
