The gent that bought my Kirk parcels van (Don Gillam) has asked me to build another Kirk kit for him. This one a 52’6″ BG. Don asked if I could convert the kit from a D111 to either a D154 or D282. With that in mind I spoke to Laurie at JLRT about getting some castings for queen posts etc for it. Being busy at the show Laurie advised emailing him later to get a parts list and then once I advise what parts and how many he will give me a price. now I fully intend to do this but since it’s to go under a plastic model I also thought that I might have a go with my silhouette cutter to see what could be done.
I am quite pleased with the result for a first attempt and feel that I might do better with subsequent cuts.
