Two Sides Of The Story

A little more work has been put in on the contract job for a model of Carnforth buffet car 114.

The window frame detail has been added in using the 10 thou strip technique I described in a previous post.

Once you get your eye in and establish a rhythm it's quite a relaxing and enjoyable job, and also very satisfying when you see the finished effect.

The most important thing is to try to use reasonably 'fresh' strip - if it's too old and brittle there is a risk it will snap at the corners when you apply a drop of solvent along the edges.

I think I might make the carriage ends - and fill the corner gaps on these sides with Milliput - before I go on to add beading detail.
