New wagons in the pipeline. This is attempt 2.0 after the first ones went a bit banana shaped, (and were too short anyway).



I left the wagons on a shelf for a few days, and they showed no apparent inclination to bend in the middle.

One still managed to warp at the angle where the frame goes down from the end platforms. I seem to remember a similar problem on some of the wood wagons I built a few months ago, and solved it as I did then by cutting through most of the frame with a hacksaw, then gluing the join and leaving the resulting mess to set solid overnight, sitting on a piece of glass with a pile of books on top. Iíve never really taken a subtle approach to model making.

Another then decided to twist slightly end to end, Iíve managed to reduce this by cutting and re-gluing but thereís still a tiny difference which I now intend to solve by pretending it isnít there.





I had a three week gap between work contracts so there will now be a brief hiatus while the financial department recovers sufficiently to order more brass, et c.

You never know, I may even paint some figures...
