Time to start adding the second layer of detail to the carriage sides,

For this I use a slightly thinner strip - 15" as opposed to 20".

The first stage is to cement on the three horizontal runs along the carriage side, at the top, the bottom and the waist.

The top and bottom are 15" x "40, and 15" x 20" for the middle.

Next, the vertical beading. A strip is placed in the middle each of the window pillars, with a matching strip below the waist.

Pieces are also placed along the rail below the toplights

It takes just over an hour to add these 50 odd pieces - each of which has to be cut to a perfect fit.
