Undercarriage plumbing

I noticed that Hachette are proposing that you fix the plumbing with twists of wire. I don't like that at all. I've managed to get hold of some self adhesive lead foil which I'll use to make metal bands. They shouldn't even need painting :)

A good idea Mark,the twisted wire looks poor and I left it off for want of a better solution,which you have now kindly come up with ! can you let us know your source of the self adhesive lead please.

Mark,

Have I missed something from Hachette or has this detail been included in the last 6 or so issues (i'm 6 or 7 issues behind on subscription)?

Thanks,

Gary

It starts in the undercarriage around issue 41. I haven't got that far myself yet. Issue 45 is that latest I received. I think it may also be useful to use as straps for the tank supplied in issue 35.

Thanks Mark,

We must be upto the same issue by subscription? Issue 42-45 came about a month ago but remain uopened due to commitments with the locomotive project I am involved with!

I thought I had missed something extra from Hachette :roll: !!

There is twisted wire on the engines as well to hold the wiring in place. I didnt bother as its hard to put them on and u cant see them anyway. Just glue the wires on and then paint them black at the points were the twisted wire is supposed to be. My advice is dont fit the engines till u get the engine nacells just incase they dont fit on with the engines mounted. Mine didnt and had to take the engines off again including the mount brackets just to get the nacells to fit.

Thanks for that hint Cliff, although my build has come to a grinding halt, partly due to the fact that I have no where to display the finished model. I did suggest hanging it from the bedroom ceiling.... didn't go down well with SWMBO :doh:
