Comparing these parts with our plans if is found that: (1) the length and height of the leaf springs needs to be increased (2) the crossmember that joins the axles should be of equal length on both sides (3) only the centre of the Ertl kit axles can be used as these are round and ours need to be of square section. 5-mm piece of plasticard. 5-mm piece at both ends of the upper leaf. 5-mm off each side. Cut with a saw and form with a file before glueing. 5-mm sections of plasticard at both ends. The assemblies comprising the wheels and axles are now finished apart from adding the four hexagonal nuts from a Verlinden accessory kit.
