Kitmaster Mark 1 Brake 2nd.

 I'd quite forgotten how easy these coaches are to make, it also brought back a lot of memories.
I am going to use etched bogie frames so the first part of the instructions are ignored, starting with assembling the body itself.
Firstly the lining guides have to be removed from the sides, this was done using a new Stanley knife blade held parallel to the plastic moulding and scraping from left to right.
At this stage I don't fully finish the removal, that I will do when the body is in one piece.
 One side is adhered to the floor after cleaning up the solebars from where the sprues attach themselves. One end and then the other come next, followed when dry , by the other side.
We now have a rigid body and will allow to thoroughly dry.
The lower picture shows how far i got in about an hour.This is the easy bit, the repetitive part comes next-windows!
