Building the frames, or How not to do things…

Today is a national holiday in Germany to commemorate the reunification in 1990, Being a public holiday it rained, but I was able to get some model building done.

I haven’t built in plasticard since about 11 years so I have an excuse for making almost every mistake in the book, and then some. I’d forgotten how awkward the stuff can be, and how it makes a blunt blade waggle all over the place. I had to scrap one frame, and this one nearly went the same way due to my dodgy measuring. However, much later this is the mark two frame ready for the next building session when it will receive a body and cab roughly like the mock-up. Hopefully.

I still don’t know what colour it’ll be.
