Connoisseur NBR Tender Truck Part 3

Still moving steadily along with this one.

Unlike most of Jim’s other kits (or at least those that I have had the good fortune to build) this ones has taken quite a bit of fettling to fit – I had to file the ends quite a bit to get them to fit properly between the sides (as the kit seems to have been intended) this is no reflection on Jim as he didn’t design it and he does mention most of what you need to file of in the instructions (and he may have mentioned this but I neglected to look at the instructions by this point).

The corner plates are a little fiddly but they do fit very nicely giving a realistic corner – it’s a pity my blurred photo doesn’t show them that well -I only managed those on the rear corners last night.
