Wounded In Action

Himself has assembled more bits of Welsh Pony, but not without great personal sacrifice!.

As I have written previously it is a rather complicated kit - Himself refers to it as a 'Burnt Finger Kit' - and his digits have had to endure some extreme temperatures over the last couple of days.

The smokebox and firebox are now permanently attached to the footplate. The tank and Cab will be left of until the chassis is made and tested in the footplate, they are pictured just resting on the footplate.

He reports it took him a whole day to assemble the firebox and cab which has to have 0.3mm wire soldered around the cab sides

The next logical step is to tackle the chassis which, he says, appears to be even more daunting!
