Well I hope this update finds you well.  The 3D parts arrived and they look fantastic.  They will be a great addition to the ‘Flat Top T class’ and will speed up the assembly process.  The brass etch was sent away for processing and when its back I will start on the pre-forming the ‘Mansard’ long hood to make the assembly even easier.

Also in the final stages now, I’m just photographing the assembly and penning the instructions for the ABU and ABE composite passenger carriages.  As a bonus these kits will come with internal partitioning for the carriage compartments.  Assembly of the partitions couldn’t be easier using slots to join the parts together.  Speaking to my fellow modellers I will also make the partitions for the previous released kits in the range.
Above is the new ABU showing internal partitions prior to the roof going on. The toilet partitions have been left out so the you can still put weight above the bogies.

Price reduction. I have managed to get a better deal on the Ultra-Fine glue applicators and as a result they are now HALF PRICE! $4.00 now
