The exhibition at the weekend gave my motivation the kick up the backside it needed, and I resolved to sort out the seats for the Gladstone carriage which I had consigned to the ‘too difficult’ box in my mind.
One of our fellow operators suggested that the 3D printing might be an option, and I gave it active consideration for a while, but eventually decided that the price of getting them produced would be more than I would be prepared to pay.
(And generally I’m not prepared to pay when it can be avoided...)
So I returned to my original plan which was to cast a resin frame and add the slats in styrene.
I bit the bullet and made a master, which I shall now make a mould from.
