Default Masterclass Mason Bogie build

Calling Mason-Bogie builders...

Hello all,

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.

I doubt that, but a reminder to post picture of your build as you go along, Bill

Hi Darrene, Sorry I was so slow getting this posted. The short answer is the truck is screwed on to a pivot of the proper length before installing the middle axle. Here are some photos of the live steam Boggie that I built.



I don't know what is going on with this thread, the photos are all different sizes and won't stay where I put them. I am showing the rear truck built from a polystyrene kit. The side frames are screwed on so the wheels can be added after the truck is mounted on its pivot. The brass parts are the bottom of the footplate and the framework. The pivot screw is held in with LocTite. I hope this helps.

For anyone contemplating a build, there's a cab and rear truck kits for sale on LSC.
