That actually looks really good already :thumb - especially the 9F....
That would be an ecumenical matter.

Some 'proper' 9F wheels would be the push I need to get started on my Bradwell chassis that's been sat in it's box for over 5 years...

I've got one Bradwell underway (frames and rods done), but there are at least two more..... :mrgreen:

I open the box of mine every now and again, get frightened and put it away again...

Nice, but where are the CSB fulcrums?
Cheers,

Sounds like the ex-Midland traffic inspector asking the ex-L&NW driver, post 1923, "Where's your Pilot engine?"; pause, shift pipe in teeth, check pocket watch, reply disdainfully (as ex-Premier Line to ex-second best) "Back in 't shed, where 'e belongs!" - or in this case, "Stuck in drawer, where they can't cause no trouble!" :D :D :D

CSBs were invented after someone tried to set up the springs on one of the other Bradwell kits. ;)

I stand corrected... can't wait to see your 9F with oleo pneumatic suspension! Body roll could an issue though. :?
