Ratio GWR 5 plank

And so it begins. The third and final volume. Anyone guess the title? First of the blocks is this Ratio 5 plank built more or less as per the instructions. I'd not done one of these before and was a bit flummoxed for a bit with the earlier Ratio design of having the solebar and bodyside as one part meaning that you can't adjust for the (now) under length axles. A bit of jiggery pokery with the bearings simply sorts it out, but they don't say that on the paperwork. This is supposed to be an entry level kit, but if the wheels fall out...
