Things are progressing quite slowly at the moment - I blame the weather.
However, I have done something about beginning the 'Erics' project, casting the chassis so that I can begin making the masters for the sides and the ends.
I've decided to use one of the B wagon chassis as a base.
They differ slightly from the DZ wagons which are a little longer, mostly on account of the way the kits are put together.
I could extend the procrastination by going on to make up the brass bogies and cast the side pieces for them but I think I'll probably pull out my scalpel and start cutting some styrene.
