With the tender virtually complete my return from Doncaster saw a start made on detailing the loco chassis. I add the springs to the drivers and then looked at the brake gear.
The instructions are along the lines of fit parts…. with a couple of build photos to assist with the general positioning.
Thankfully looking at prototype pictures helped answer most questions. the first being how the hanger mounts fit
There is a better view in Yeadon but I found this and it saved me scanning the book.
As with some older kits, the forks in the etches for the rods connecting the brake spreaders are a little over etched so needed bushing.
By accident or design some scrap from the chassis etches folded over the spreader was just the right thickness to fill the gap.
They just need soldering together once fitted.
