Pony Progess

Welsh Pony is close to getting on her wheels.

Having obtained the correct etches for the chassis from Mercian, Himself has made good progress putting it together.

It's quire intricate for a 009 chassis as you can see below.

As you can see the chassis is not on its wheels yet and there is no sign of any drive train, That is because, as I wrote in a previous post, the gearbox we received with the kit does not fit together - some of the gears foul the motor - and even if you could get the gearbox together it would not fit beneath the saddle tank.

Himself has been given the contact details of some other modellers who have succeeded in making one of these kits move and we await their wisdom.
