How not to do it

I've heard stories of modelers struggling to assemble their Trackgang Dx and Df kits without bending any of the whitemetal bits. It appears that you may not be on your own with this problem.

Notice how the modeler has made the mistake of bending the body sides to match the footplate, rather than the other way round. This is a simple error often made by the inexperienced.

(I must get Mr Bond to reserect his modelers notes slideshow for a more modern audience. Oh, and cheers to Drew for this)
