    progress is slow, two steps forwards and ten steps back. in following Peter and Adrians method of making the cylinders detachable im trying to sort out how to build a full length chassis and realised that the kit etchwork is wrong on the front fixing for the 6BA travel arc limit screw and also the pivot point for the front bogie is also suspect. with this in mind ive decided it best to build the front bogie to work out both 6BA screws centrelines. However the kit comes with a poorly cast main bogie, so I turned to the etches to build as per the College original intentions, then I find the top etch is incorrect, does anybody have the original College build instructions for the etch front pony truck? ivatt bogie.JPG
