Well, I did promise they would look more like the real ones inside.

This is a shot of the first of the wagons which like all prototypes involved quite a bit of trial and error, so that's why it looks a bit untidy with lots of different bits of styrene fused together. The second is a lot neater because of the lessons learned on the first one.

So that's the ballast doors just about done. The only major job remaining on them is the opening mechanisms, but I can't do them until I receive the cogs which are being etched for me.

So the next job will be the air reservoirs and vacuum cylinders located on the platforms at each end of the wagons.
