Chassis jigged


No idea how long it took to get me this far but no more than a couple of hours.

The chassis sides fold up and thanks to some nice tab and slots design, everything locates reasonably accurately in place. The slots are perhaps a little larger than perfect so some care is required to make sure everything lines up.

Aluminium axle jigs aid the positioning of the bearings. Two lengths of these are supplied with the short ones for the gearbox end and the long ones in the other holes. I'm intrigued by this as there is a support for the centre of the axle which would normally indicate it rocks to compensate for uneven track. The long bearings would seem to make this less likely though. We'll have to wait and see.
