I have begun work on 150 which has meant tackling one of the trickiest bits right from the outset, the subtle reverse curve on the waist line of the carriage at the front end.

What's trickier still is that it needs to be done twice and they need to be identical as far as possible.

The next step will be to add the window pillar sticks and the cant rails along the top.

My intention is that these two sides will be used as masters to make resin copies which will make up the main bodyside along with the vestibule doors and the corridor end which will also be cast.

The curved section at the front...I haven't come to a firm decision on that yet.
