Calling Mason-Bogie builders...
I've started work on completing the excellent work Doc Watson started on his Masterclass Mason Bogie.
It's slow going due to life, other projects and my getting to grips with styrene and scratch building in general, but I'm making progress
Can I ask those who have already built theirs, how they went about mounting the rear truck to the chassis?
At present I have a completed styrene truck kit which has a hole in the mounting turret, and the laster cut chassis (not the channelled BBT one).
My best guess at the moment is to make a packer to go between the two, to get the height right, I'm aware the thing needs to swivel too; is a bolt nipped up 'not too tight' likely to be sufficient? access to the truck mount hole from beneath is difficult as it is obstructed by the centre axle
I'm interested to hear what others have done - unless I've overlooked something (entirely possible), the notes are a bit light in this area.
