    I diverted a bit and assembled a couple of Branchlines Drewry 04 chassis kits – rigid this time – and used what Markits wheels I had left to create one rolling chassis. It took me a surprising amount of time to achieve a smooth-running chassis, but I got there eventually. Over the last few days I’ve gone back to the Y6, fettling the castings (which were very good and distortion-free) and today assembling the upper body. With the castings being very fine, and probably irreplaceable, I used cyano gel to stick them together. At the moment I’ve got a shed on wheels. I have issues with the design of the lower body, so’ll be doing a bit of scratchbuilding to accommodate the scale mainframes I built.
