Super Detailing the Heljan O Gauge Deltic

18/08/15: Compromise - I don't like that word...

Back to the drawing board and a serious re-think about the bogie/motor support...

The 7mm trial cab interior next to an old 4mm version - once when I had better eyes and thinner fingers 4mm modelling wasn't a problem!
The offending hole in the cab floor (allowing the bogie/motor support to come through and pivot) means a serious decision about further modifications to the cast sections of the bogies...

Wheelsets removed - it is the motor collar and support which needs to be removed and re-fabricated..

In order for safe-keeping...

The cast sides re-joined and the void packed with tissue paper to reduce metal filing ingress.
