YKA Osprey NGS Wagon Kit NGK043
« on: July 09, 2018, 12:37:21 am »
I'm building the bogies for the NGS YKA Osprey wagon and have some bits left over!! Included in the kit are four bits of flat, black plastic  that are not mentioned or illustrated in the build notes. Two are simple rectangles and two are similar but have notches that seem to match those on the fold-up etches. Where do they all go?

Sounds like parts for lengthening the coupler pocket distance.

Can you post a photo?

Cheers, Mike

Hi Brian

Sorry - only just seen this. 

I am pretty sure that what you're talking about are the extender plates to ensure the couplers are at the right distance out. 

Without them, because the Ospreys have much shorter bogies in real life than the original 8' plate backs fitted when they were built, the couplers wouldn't reach past the buffers!

Cheers

Ben A.
