Kof chassis sketching...

Well not just sketching but mainly...

I raided my daughters old pen box and found a dead one to use as the air brake reservoir. It looks about the right size but when offered up needs so much cut out from the back that it just doesn't look rights. I sketched out this and other details including the footboards, bonnet hinges and bufferbeam hooks. Add to that the fact that the Zillertal engine doesn't have train brakes fitted anyway, and I think I'm going to leave them off.

I made use of the time today to also cut off the corners of the buffer beams, file the smooth and remove the screws. These are now ready for filling.
