A new milestone: Starting the wall partitions today.


Figure 138, 139: Treating a warped piece. They have to be as flat as possible. I soaked it in water and nailed on a flat surface. Will wait for some time (maybe overnight).

With all the detailed undercarriage work, you may consider displaying the coach on a mirror, as it is sometimes done in museums ...

Yes, part of my head is thinking of a nice display solution, which allows under part as well as inside visible. The roof will be removable allowing to look inside. Maybe something like a mirror on the bottom and roof partly open to the side.

Will there be any kind of piping running under the frame? Brake piston(s), steam and air lines. I assume with quality of the kit so far, these items will be added further in your build. As Wefalck says, using a mirror may enhance the views.

Right now I intend to build as far as what is available in the current kit. Maybe I dare to add other things later.
