    Any picture of what you are working on?

    J69 frames

    It’s the frames for an Ian Rice J69 kit.

    At some point I must have decided/understood that rigid frames and narrow tyre treads, especially with DCC, are for other people. I’ve got the order of march scrambled though because I have already added a couple of the frame stretchers but not cut out the openings for the hornblocks. So I will have to rewind a bit.

    So – what happens to the etched springs? My feeling is cut them off and worry about them later. I value being able to drop out the axles, but as things stand I already have one fixed bearing for the rear axle. Should that come out and be replaced by a removable one?
