Right, final bits. The front buffer plank vacuum pipe parking plug is fitted. There seem to be bits on one of the sprues that really ought to be a single casting, but I've bodged together something that sort of works. The brake fittings, at last. I found various odds and ends of castings in the Bits Box which looked about right, mounted on a 1.6mm brass rod. The pull rod is "resting" on the rigging so it can all be removed. Removing the brake rigging proved possible. Yesterday I was tidying things up, preparing for painting, when I noticed one of the front hangers had broken loose. I had to disassemble the connecting rods, remove the cylinder block and then carefully remove the shoes and rigging to repair things. It worked well, so that was pleasing. The beast is currently in pieces. I think dunking the body in some Viakal, then a period in the airing cupboard to dry out, is the next stage. I have other builds I can get on with while I think about beginning the painting.
