Happy Ending

I was really pleased the end piece cast perfectly first time, which is no mean achievement when you consider that it includes both an undercut - from the beading - and the very thin brass tongues which stick out at each side.

Having cleaned the flash off the casting the next job was to shape the end of the floor to match.

And finally the big test - gluing it into position.

We'll only know for sure if I've truly captured the look and feel of the observation end when we get the roof on and the central window pillar in place but so far so good.

It has also made the body shell pleasingly rigid, which is very positive.
