GCR 6-Wheel Brake 3rd D.2A16

First test etches. A lot to squeeze onto one sheet and significant amounts of half-etch on the other side!This is the 3-compartment version. 2-compartment to follow.


On the 2A16 3-compt and 2A17 2-compt the duckets are very close to the end. At the outer side of the ducket there is only a 1.5mm full height strip on the body to attach to, which isexcruciatingly difficult to build. So the compromise is to loose substantial ’see-through-ness’ by placing the duckets ‘on’ rather than ‘through’ the body sides (as with the PBV) or produce the duckets as a casting. I am pursuing both options.
