Its been too long without a guards van post. Some might say not long enough.
This week I've been doing roofs and stuff. After gluing the shot into the van bodies for weight, I glued the pre-shaped balsa roofs in place.
Once the glue had set I then carefully cut down the ends (well, as carefully as it gets) and then gave them a bit of a sanding to complete the shape.
The ventilators on the roof are courtesy of Trackgang. I marked in pencil where i wanted them to be, then attached them with 5 minute araldite. I also added the small circular bits which I assume hide the interior lighting bits, and the power supply lines for them as well ( gas or electricity, I'm not sure which).
So here is where we are up to at the moment. Almost finished apart from some details, the underframe bits and some bogies.
