Double Coupé 3

Body assembled

5/25/20231 min read

A small but significant update on progress with No.69. The ends are now united with the sides and it looks like a proper carriage. As usual the photograph highlights a couple of issues on the corner joints that I hadn't noticed whilst soldering so they may need a little remedial work, but there are only a few more jobs to do until I can sign-off the body and turn my attention to the roof and the underframe.

The roof is now joined together and just resting in place at the moment. This will require drilling to accept four roof lamps and the addition of luggage rails. The body still needs some lower hinge detail for the doors, commode and door handles have still to be fitted. The compartment partitions also await fettling and soldering in place.
