While we are always happy to display or talk about a great model that we have created, this is a post about one of those jobs that is just not quite right and not to the standard that one sets oneself.
I mentioned in an earlier post that I was building a kit of an EHO passenger guards van and spoke about having to remove a coat of paint because it was more purple than indian red. That process went reasonably well and the replacement colour is satisfactory. I also 'tea bagged' the roof, again with fairly positive results. I chose not to add wire handrails which was probably a bit of a shortcut but the ones that were cast into the body were reasonably prominent. Besides, wire handrails are not one of my strengths if one looks at my collection of S trucks, BCHs et al.
However, it is the chassis that has caused me to be less than satisfied with the results particularly after I came across photos of James McInerney's EHO (http://lambingflat.blogspot.com.au/2011/01/eho1473-or-is-it-1469.html)
