Wow!

That confirms that the Worsley Works kit is beyond me - especially as I'm currently working with just one good eye due to Cataracts (2nd op delayed thanks to C-19).

Those bogie sideframes are impressive, I've no idea how to make them. Perhaps you have stumbled on a sideline?

Thank you Graham :thumbsup:

The pattern masters took a bit of time to make which was mainly from donor parts cut and shaped and of course some good old plasticard. 

Bearing in mind no 3D printing was used at any time (old school way of doing things!) I'm pretty happy they are not far off matching the detail of the real thing.

@robert shrives

Hi Robert

Here's another method of mine for shaping and rounding brass kit edges.

First I use this stuff.... brass rod:



Then I solder rod inside the corners that require shaping then trim them off, you have to solder tack the rod either end first before running a length of solder, to remove heat build up I quench using liquid flux otherwise the corners of the body could come apart!





As for my brass mesh method, the use of a brass modeling vice not only positions the body but acts as a heat sink, its not so much the amount of solder needed but things can get a bit hot as it can be a fiddly job, the mesh has to be first spot soldered into position. But when soldering the mesh has to be held down otherwise it will rise up through the molten solder, I used a small stainless rod to do this.





Hope those tips help you
Dave

Now found all the bits for the roof panels (both of them and the cab/footplate base. I had made up the footplate complete with buffer beams. So something for this evening to finish.

Bogie sideframes do look good if you are willing to make a second set ?!

Photo is of 71005 at Ashford 31 October 1975, slap bang in the middle of my spotting activities as a spotty youth.
My usual hangout was Eastleigh, where there was another Clasp building, of course.

Well one penny just dropped , the 71 had conventional  and no MU stuff dangling on the front! the 74 had emu buffing plate and string.  - Well a duff 73 body will provide.. might glue the whole buffer beam to the body.

Ho hum every day a school day. 
Found two lovely pics in BR blue No1 "Southampton and the New Forest tome by John Dedman of 74s in the New forest, on rails ! Along with a drawing in BR main line diesels by RS Carter.  Now need to add three roof vents.  The drawing shows three on the centre line photos show two offset !
