GGR coach body assembly
The benefits of accurate laser-cutting are apparent when assembling the body. The seats slot into the door-free side (The GGR bogie coaches have doors on on side only), this is then slotted into the floor and finally the open side fits to this. All parts come together with no fiddling, trimming or any other fettling. A bit of PVA glue and all is well.
Except. I put the seats in upside down. Consistently upside down. That's why the end seats are higher than the rest. How I managed this, I don't know.
There's nothing I can do about it now. The glue has dried so dis-assembly would destroy the parts. I'll just have to live with it. How I deal with putting passengers in, I'm not sure at the moment. Any suggestions would be welcomed.
