Hi

Just a quick update with both sides of the rear rack finished, now is the time to make and fit the rear back cover which has to be cut from a leather sheet supplied in the kit, first thing is to measure your own work and adjust to that ( reason no to builds are the same) then cut 4 straps to fit around the outside edge of the cover, I super glued mine on being careful not to spill it will stain.

This picture shows both sides fitted to form the rear rack sides, Rear back cover on the right.



Next to make and fit will be the back cover, this will have leather straps around with buckles, the buckles have to be made by hand I used 1mm brass and when inserting the leather straps through the buckles be sure to cut them a bit smaller than the buckles, when inserted fold-over halfway and glue, when dry glue and pin to the corresponding places on the sides and back of the luggage rack.




Back cover fitted with straps and buckles.



Regards

Trev


ps: next will be the roof rails.

This is such an impressive build!

I also have this one in my stash - but looking at your build i loose any motivation to ever start that project - as i could never reach such perfection! (same is true with that U-boat build of Sticky Wickett)

Walter

Trev,
I have now completed the chassis thanks to your help. Have started work on the cabin but need some clamps which will arrive tomorrow. This is quite a difficult project for what is referred to as suitable for beginners!

Hi Alcairns,

That's a wonderful chassis build well done, I have noticed the brake leaver clamps well done on that, so you must be very proud of yourself. As for the coach build, it can be a bit stressful but no more that you can't handle, just keep posting so I can see where you are.

Regards

Trev.

Hi Alan, Leatherwork not to bad to do, Key is to take your time and go by your own build measurements as every build will be a bit different.

Hi Walter, thank you for looking at my build and your nice comments, I know that when you start your Stagecoach build, I will follow every stage that you build after your fabulous Victory build we will have a fabulous coach build.

Hi tf64,

I don't know if you've installed the stirrups on page 55 yet, but personally I believe there in the wrong place. From what I've seen looking at photos these should be just under the main drivers unit near the front just deform the curve.

If there installed where the instructions tell us to put them in real life you would need really long legs to rest them, imagine stepping on the wheel or steering unit then trying to step on them where they are in the instructions.

The idea is to step on the steering unit then on the stirrup and then onto the front foot rest.
Built. HMS Bounty, RMS Titanic, MP4-23, Flying Scotsman, Aston Martin DB5, Honda CB750, Mustang, R2-D2, Jaguar, DeLorean, Testarossa, Plus many plastic kits.
Building. Bismarck, U96, Alfa, plastic kits.
To build. HMS Hood. HMS Victory. Cutty Sark. SoS, Lancaster bomber. DR1 Triplane. JU-87. Plus many many plastic kits.

Hi Mustang,

Very good point! as I haven't fitted the Winch box at this stage of my build I had not noticed, but it would be difficult to get up into the seat needs to be looked at (bet a few fell off trying )

Thanks Trev - that is very kind of you. Admittedly I have not done everything by the book.
