It’s always a very satisfying moment to make the first cut on a new model, in this case the WHR observation car Gwyrfai which entered service at the FR vintage weekend.
One of the most crucial things for getting this carriage looking right is the step in the body side where the front saloon begins.
What I did was cut two identical, plain long rectangles, then mark the bit to be cut off with a 45 degree angle at the end rather than a curve.
Once that was removed the corner was created by careful use of a round file.
Next I’ll be adding vertical strips of styrene for the window pillars.
