Almost nothing gets posted in the 'On My Workbench' section these days. Is nobody building anything?

Anyway, I have a couple of projects on the go and the first to completion is this GWR Dia. C10 Clerestory Third, a relatively straightforward cut-and-shut utilising two Triang Clerestory Brakes to create a prototype. In the most remote way it is similar to the Triang Clerestory Composite: the C10 has 8 compartments to the generic Composite's 7 however, and the original Mark One bogies have - of course - been consigned to the bin. The splicing in this case was pleasingly trouble-free, too.

The build blog: https://srmg.org.uk/gwr-clerestory-all-thir...iang-conversion

And photos of the finished item:




And a comparison with an unaltered Triang Clerestory Composite. The C10 is only about 5mm longer inspite of it having an additional compartment.
