Not much of an update; just to stop people thinking that the project is dead. Still the odd strut to straighten, but otherwise, on track.

Hi,

I'm just having a wee break from the O305. I just have to sort some things out with the chassis, e.g. straightening some cross-members, etc; adding a (non-functioning) steering system, i.e. the wheels will steer, but the pitman arm/drag link won't funtion. I also have to finish off the detailing of the engine, then paint and prime the chassis and engine and then add some finishing lattice work at the rear of the bus; I have to do that after fitting the engine, or else I won't be able to fit the engine. Fitting of other equipment at the rear will be added, etc; and THEN just the chassis will be complete....the body will be next!


Cheers!


P.S. On the 1st day of the tours, I'll bring my reference work and scale drawings I produced for the O305 project.

Long time between drinks, hows it coming along?

Assume you woke from the coma you were in at the miniature railway display at the showgrounds last weekend :twisted:

Chassis is nearly done. Just saving up for a Dremel drill so I can start with the body.

Re: Miniature Rwy, they were you-drives.....they can become a little boring after a few hours....

Yep, I could certainly see what caused the boredom and why you got bored...
