Did the next SCC kit go out the door? It has been two months since the last kit was delivered and hoping to make a rally or two this year!

Its complete should go out on Wednesday, then your on your final kit so I guess rallies are looking good for this year.

not a lot to see this week that you haven't seen already, but we have nearly finished the roller horn-plate kit. the LH horn-plate is a welded fabrication...



and this needs final machining...



and so the kit is done...





Ian is just prepping the tender so he can join the two together...



a lot of this week has been spent making parts for electric sentinel kits...

more tender parts to do soon, this time basic 4inch burrell...





also some 4inch walkboard brackets...



and lubricator brackets...



showmans/roadloco starter knobs...

Looks like things are progressing nicely on a number of fronts. Those roller wheels look quite heavy, hope you have had your weetabix before carrying them around the factory. Keep up the good work.

a pallet load of electric sentinel chassis...



and an interesting photo of a boiler during construction...



I've spent a lot of time this week on 2inch governor bases...



water pumps...



and check valves...

photos for last week...

the roller "wheels" kit was finished and sent out. the pair of wheels look great together on the single axle...





also the rear wheels have arrived. we have three pallets of these...



the lyka diff castings have been split and the inner area machined...



and fitted to the control model...



I cant remember if i posted a photo of the prototype spring set, but there it is. we will be working on these next week...



the bu tender fillets from last week have had the backs turned...



and are now on the mill to be segmented...



and the pile of electric sentinel parts is still growing...



there wont be anymore photos till after Easter now because I'm on holiday next week, but if your lucky you may get an update from Ian.
Don't forget to pester him with any and all of your production questions Laughing Wink

we are producing this kit along with kit 23 of the Agi the machined parts are done but all the seat parts need fabricating and we have a backlog in that dept so we are still looking a couple of weeks (we are as eager for your money as you are for our kit) it will be as soon as possible.
