NS 7000 class

Frame assembly

In May 2008 I set out to complete the NS 7005. This page shows in brief the completion of the frame assembly . Working on it was parallelled with work on the super structure and the boiler. I'm currently updating all three pages as work progresses.

In 2007 I had made my last attempt to complete the loco. I had painted almost everything when I dropped the box with the loco. It send the parts sprawling and wreaked havoc among the painted parts. I had no choice but to remove it all and start all over again.

The frame assy consist of many and very small parts.

I've optimized the frame assy before painting. Once again I have an article in Dutch which I will translate in due course.


At last the loco is on its wheels again!!
