Fencehouses 10 ft wagon chassis.
Must admit, I have been looking forward to this!
A cracking little etch, from Peter White, in nickel silver. To free from the etch is easy, just the minimum of metal to cut through.
Peter did give me a hint that it is best to solder the bearings before bending up the frame, which I did using the late lamented Finney and Smith pin point bearings.
Once parted from the main etch, the main section folds up along constant lines to produce a very strong box- soldered in all four corners.
The brake gear, again, easily folds and, with tabs, locates in the main etch.
