photos from this week.

i spent the first half of the week setting up and machining the roller head stock castings. although they have very few holes in for mounting to the smoke box the weight of them meant the jig had to be quite chunky. i have taken some video of this and will edit it at home and post it later, here is a photo for now...



then they were stood on end for the blast pipe holes...



also got the 6inch foden front wheels finished...



more parts are being made for the electric sentinel...



we have had the calipers in for the lyka, and they are fitted to the control model although they are not in the next kit. next kit will be the springs. these are currently out for heat treatment.



more showmans seat parts...



and road-loco roof supports...
