Fret 6 arrives in the Post Over the past umpteen years I've been developing wagon suspension units for (mostly) North Eastern wagons. This started as part of the development of kits for Diagram P4 hopper wagons but has acquired a life of its own - development of the P4 kits is still ongoing but is progressing slowly. I've just got my sixth fret back from PPD and couldn't resist the urge to post a picture - prudence says that I should do a test build first but I suppose I can post updates as the test build progresses, and maybe cause some amusement if it all goes pear-shaped. The fret has three each of the early and late type of NER w-iron, and all are 9' 6" wheelbase (which was the most common). Incidentally, the cost of getting this etched by PPD and delivered by Royal Mail was £66, which is very good value. I guess this is made possible by the use of digital artwork - when I was doing LNWR coaches in 4mm in the 1990s it cost over £100 to get pen-plotted artwork converted into a photo-etch tool, but that required the skill of Phil and his very expensive camera. ...to be continued.
