    Paul, your Y6 post in my “wants” ad. inspired me to make a start on mine. I’m using cast hornguides from London Road Models, and I thought I’d mention that I’m leaving the fettling-to-fit until after I’ve soldered them in, as I find a “sticky” hornblock makes it easier to handle them in the Poppy’s jig (which I find excellent). Back in the day, I had some plastic hornguides from Maygib, I think, which had a moulded rim to aid location in the cutout in the mainframe etch. You might just about be able to spot this in the photo below. Are there any like this (pref. metal) still available? Cheers.
