    One thing about these JLTRT kits is that they go together quite quickly, but you still need to 'fettle' them to get a good fit of the cast parts.



    This particular build has taken a bit more thought as the motor supplied was not what the kit was designed for and I needed to make provision, within the inner bogie casting, to accommodate the Slaters motor/gearbox unit as well as squeeze in a Delrin chain drive. It eventually fitted, just, without compromising the integrity of the inner chassis. The photos show where I had to cut a hole in the bogie chassis to accommodate the gear box. The hole in the footplate also need to be extended slightly to allow the gearbox to swing.

    It is stunning Sandy, as they say the devil is in the detail.
