I've been meaning to do a workbench thread for awhile now but I never seem to get around to actually doing it. This is my first attempt at a proper "Etched" kit so any constructive criticism would be greatly appreciated. Don't be shy to point out any areas I have missed or can be improved. Anyway, onto the kit. This is an "All Nickle Silver" Patriot from the David Andrews range. I started with the tender which will hopefully give me a feel for the method of construction. I used Carrs "No clean Solder Cream". At the time I never thought about taking photographs of the construction so all I have is the finished product. I didn't rate the large whitemetal casting for the bunker/toolbox front so I made a replacement up from a strip of Nickle Silver. The Axleboxes/Spring assembly are from Laurie Griffin with the underkeep/Horn ties made from Scrap Etch and a couple of Scale hardware bolts. Also from Laurie are the Brake Standards and Lamp brackets. The buffers are from MOK and the coupling is from HobbyHorse. It was cleaned up with a glass fibre brush and a good scrub in Ciff. There's still a few things to add but I have now moved onto the Loco.
