GGR Coach seats.

Cutting Parts

Most of the Groudle coach is seating. This is released from the fret with a sharp knife cutting through the nibs holding the parts in place. I had to go through both sides for a neat cut. A little tidying up with sandpaper finished the job.

One thing I do notice, is just how filthy the sandpaper gets working in the laser-singed edge of the woodwork. Great black lines appear on the grit almost instantly.

Wooden SeatsAssembly is simple enough - all the parts slot together and are fixed with a little PVA glue. Although the bits look pretty basic, I wouldn't fancy cutting the curved tops for the ends out manually.
