Lima Class 121 cut and shut

A few tidy up jobs today. The first was one that's been hanging around for ages -fitting the exhausts onto the 121 unit.Lima Class 121 cut and shut Being that I did this the old fashioned way and chopped mine from an original Lima 2-car I had to turn straight pipes into bendy ones. This was carried out by turning the soldering iron on and parking it loose on the bench. Then, with more than a little care, dangling the plastic pipes close to it until soft. What fun. Too far away and nothing - too close and the skin comes off your finger.
I suffer for my art.
