In last night’s blog post, I said work on my Panniers would commence in the beginning of next Month. After I posted this, I felt this was an excuse and I was just putting off working with the scalpel.
So last night, I sat down at the workbench with my practice body (Replica 57XX) and made a start removing moulded detail. I’m really pleased with the results, and I would be certainly happy with these results on one of my Bachmann Models.
Tonight I removed the sandbox covers, I will be doing this on my Bachmann Panniers as the covers are too far forward, and will mean the RT sand linkage will be able to reach the covers, a tip from Alan Buttler.
What has surprised me is how easy this work was, granted using such a sharp scalpel blade requires care, however due to this, it did make the cutting relatively simple. It’s also interesting comparing the Bachmann and Mainline Bodies….there is a lot of similarities between the two and makes me wonder how much is basically the same.
No excuses getting on with the first 8750 now(which will be 4643).
