Quick update on latest production...

Post  craig@STW on Thu 20 Dec 2012, 10:04 pm

just a quick word on the stuff we manged to get done before Xmas.

first off was the showmans/roadloco seat and motion covers plus the roadloco roof. these are done and have gone. here you can see our control model showmans featuring the road loco roof...



good news for the showmans roof kit is that we now have the twisted brass in the factory...

next up was the foden 4inch kit 3, rear Axel boxes and springs.

after a final push to get the springs hardened, this was completed and sent out in time...

and the big push to get the first kit of the new Traction wagon done was 99% successful in that we have completed 99% of the parts.

it's just the rear wheel rims and the actual boxing up of this kit that has prevented it going out. it will be going early January cheers

the Axles...



and hubs...



inner and outer hub covers...



hub caps...



oilers...



and spokes...

work on the showman's roof and the foden 6inch rear brakes are the next priority.

tomorrow is our last day (this year) and will be spent giving STW towers a good clean up Very Happy
