The work on the TTA wagons continues…
I was able to borrow a hold and fold device from my friend Kelvin Barnes and this tool helped me to bend and form the walk ways which fit around the filling cap on the TTA wagons.
I’m not a big fan of etched brass and was worried about spoiling my kits with the final stages. I think I may have just about got away with it!
After bending the etched brass pieces in the right places, I gave them a coat of acrylic primer. Once this was dry, I sprayed the pieces with the same colour used on the tanks.
The pieces were stuck to the wagons with small drops of slow drying superglue. I applied this with the tip of a cocktail stick.
The next stage will be fitting the end ladders, after which I shall apply the decals.
