Foden kit 13, cylinder bolt on parts.

Post  craig@STW on Wed 15 Sep 2010, 12:20 am

working hard on this kit now. I've promised Dean that we can turn this around in a couple of weeks so that should give some idea of dispatch dates.

all the glands are done...





and the first op if the slide valve is done...



these will soon become steam chest covers...



cylinder end covers ready for drilling...



it looks like we will be dispatching the roof and cab sides kit, although Steve has now added a piece of floor section from another kit so that you can actually do something with it. we need to order some laser cuts for this Cool

more work done on this.

front and rear cylinder covers before and after milling op...





valve chest covers op 1 and 2. you can see how we carve the basic shape out of the blank material, flip it over, skim it off and add the detail...



valve spindles...



and just setting up the trunk guides now...

getting very close on this one now. just need to finish the trunk guides and the make the pistons.

the trunk guides are all machined but the bores need honing to get the final finish.

this is the last op of machining...



and as you can see the castings are "double sided". these have now been trimmed to make LH and RH guides...

chasing this up today, its getting there. Ian is honing the trunk guides as i type Cool

the roof kit is not such good news I'm afraid, it would seem that the stock we have of the covering for the roof it-self (calico ??) is of a type that steve does not want to use, basically cos its naff. so we are now having to order more of this.

this whole roof/sides kit is being a real pain, mainly due to the mix up of parts in some of the modelsworks original kits. but we are working our way through it and we won't be sending out anything "sub-standard" hence the delays Cool
