    Hi Nigel – it’s been too hot in the loft to do much work recently!

    I have done some work to the frames, including making the cutouts for the hornblocks, have made up the hornblocks and made a gun barrel bearing for the trailing axle. Doesn’t look like much so I will save the next instalment for when the chassis frames have been assembled. I think to allow sufficient sideplay on the trailing axle I will need to cut the frames behind the rear drivers and assemble the rear part with thinner spacers, then attach it back to the main chassis.
