Optical Illusion

Our Brian Madge chassis for our new Britomart is up and running.

Unfortunately appearance can be deceptive and Himself has not found a way to fit the new outside frame chassis into the old body but is merely holding the two of them in such a way that it looks like he has.

So the search / wait for another Chivers / Five79 Quarry Hunslet kit continues.

However the picture does give a good impression of how fabulous our new Britomart is going to look, and Himself tells me that the Brian Madge kit goes together easily and runs a treat.

It really is a very neat piece of design.

Himself does note that there is one thing to be aware of if you're assembling the motion using solder.

Apparently it is very easy to loosen the crank pins on the cranks if you linger too long with the the iron.
