These pictures show the building of the first test etches, starting with what we thought was the most complex part, the frames. And then we got to the cab which was virtually impossible to build in nickel silver and forced a re-think and a change to brass to allow the complex curves to be formed more easily. The two footplates also proved interesting!

Pictures of the final test build will appear as this progresses.
