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.
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!
