Gladiator ex GCR Open with Trestle Bar

Minor health issues this week have stopped play for a few days so it was only last night when I made more progress.
The open wagon is well on it’s way now and it just needs the trestle bar and final details.
I also need to work out just how to spring the buffers because they are turned brass heads that are designed for springing with a piece of piano type wire passing between them and the coupling hook tail.


Aside from the buffers it’s a lovely kit to build with everything fitting as and where it should.
