In­stall a smoke unit

Model Rail (UK) - - Opening The Box -

This is an ex­cel­lent kit but I wanted it to have func­tion­ing se­cur­ing rings. I cut away the eight non-work­ing rings, leav­ing small, rect­an­gu­lar holes along the edge of the planks. I sol­dered a small nickel sil­ver over­lap­ping plate un­der­neath these, into which I drilled a small hole so it could take a brass split pin. I made the small rings from 0.6 nickel sil­ver wire. It was not an­nealed but sim­ply wound round an ap­pro­pri­ate rod/ drill shank to form a coil, then snipped to form in­di­vid­ual rings. The fi­nal mod­i­fi­ca­tion was to score the planks with the side of a coarse grade file to sim­u­late wood grain.
