Tender brakes

Tender Brakes

I nearly forgot these ! Preparing the body for paint, I suddenly realised that there were some bits left on the fret. In my enthusiasm to get on with the powered end I left the tender brakes for another day. Brakes aren't my favourite part of the model and tender ones are pretty much hidden anyway.

Assembly isn't difficult. Red label flux from Carrs should ensure that those joints I can't clean won't go green and fall apart. Putting the pull rods on the right way around would have speeded things up as well. Never mind, soldered joints are easy enough to break and re-make properly...
