Tal update

Further work tonight, including the addition of the valance and tank overlays after annealing to bend them over the formers. The bunker has received its wrapper and tool box and the tank fronts are also on. Underneath the rear, the bogie has been completed (well it needs its wheels yet).

I also started work on the main chassis, with the bearings added and cylinders bent to shape. I will need Dad's jig to check this as I am a little concerned that there may be some out of square issues and maybe a dodgy axle (it looks minor, but they may require some attention to ensure good running).

Looking good so far! There's no better way to learn than to crack on and try it.
