Some updates to the ongoing build.

This is a earlier pic of the body buffers.

I had to reposition the air hose line as I mistakenly placed it opposite to where it should be. The joy of interpreting a plan that is looking down through the floor instead of looking up from below.

The brake chain assembly. The hooked end will be attached to the ratchet bar, wound over and passed through
the chain guide to the brake pull bar and then fixed to the body with the U clip.

Scratchbuilt brass fittings ready to be painted.

Adding the grab handles for the sliding door.

A little while ago I got my wheels and bogies 3d printed. Using the plans I made them to scale as much as possible and made adjustments for ease of printing. I was happy with the wheels, but the bogies didn't print out as I planned. then there was the axles, the centre was too narrow and the ends too thick as I had failed to correct a mistake and so being tight with funds had to look for a alternative.

I've got galvanised fencing wire which is perfect for axle ends diameter wise, it's hard and won't corrode - it''s also hi tensile so straightening it with a drill and vice took slight effort. Looking about I discovered at a hardware store some 3.6 mm aluminium rod for the axles as they did not have metal tubing to fit. Not being a machinist and I don't possess a lathe so I used my drill press to bore a hole down the centre of 3.6 mm aluminium rod cut to size to be the main body of the axle. Thinned the ends to accept the wheels to 3 mm diameter and create a shoulder to keep the wheels in gauge. I then filed the holes to accept the wire without forcing it in or being too sloppy to move about.

I tested as I went to make sure I didn't overdo the tolerances. Test fitting in the sideframes and comparing the results to a MDC bogies shows the scale differences but also how big they looked on a small open wagon.

I still have to make the adjustments to the axles to be in gauge and fit the wheels comfortably.

Scott what scale and gauge are you working in? I've also modelled a couple of SAR 3'6" wagons (old fashioned low-tech modelling though) in 1:32 scale for 32 mm gauge. Not many of us working in that combination - I'm wondering if you may be another?!

Peter, I work in 1:24 or half inch scale and use 45mm trackage for the SAR narrow gauge. I use a combination of old school and new school technology to make my models. I do apologise in replying as my other work has had its workload go up quite a notch leaving little time for modelling.
