The next small steps....

Cabling and rails picked out
Glazing added
Buffers added (Thanks Bernard)
Holes drilled for windscreen wipers (!)

That closest windscreen looks a bit sticky-outy on this macro shot - may have to redo it.



Its all fearfully slow; but approaching the crucial bit - decal application!

Hoping to use N Gauge Society Gresley bogies - but this is a bit of a sticking point as they are AWOL; may have to wait for a new production run.

Cheers  Jon  :)

Some progress today with @PostModN66 and his Class 304. Greenmax power unit installed and test run.

Apologies for the quality, thus is the High Definition upload choice result from YouTube.

Unit still needs side and under frame details adding, and some new bogies. NGS Gresleys if they get them in stock before the end of the next millennium, and some scratchbuilt power car bogie sides.

It's still in this state!  The sticking point has been the sides.  The transfers that came with the original kit - the white ones that go underneath - fell apart when they were put in water. I have had a brief discussion with Adam Warr about vinyls, but I haven't pursued it; the 325 was the priority.

cheers

Thats a shame.

Yes the 2 layer transfer system was the only option available at the time prior to vinyls.  When I did my vinyls I had a full time business which took up a lot of my time and never got round to printing vinyls for the 308 unfortunately, although I did do the designs for them.  Hopefully Adam can get some done for you if you message him?
