Almost finished the three test packs. The edges of the gunners will need properly doing once clipped apart; the line will have to take their chances, but  because the crew be around their pieces their edges will be seen. Not clipping until ready to base, and I'm in Leon and the Royal mail's hands on that.

Had trouble getting wheels to stick. After I've done all four I wondered about gluing a thin wire Axel on the underside, and going with my idea of drilling the hubs.

The re are 2 lengths of barrel, the shorter barely clears the carriage. Any oine know what it is meant to represent?

I'd say the shorter barrel is meant to represent a howitzer

I agree. Issued by the British at one per battery, though Bull's Battery at Waterloo were all howitzers.

Indeed, howitzers IIRC Walt's comment before correctly.

Odd on the gluing - I just superglued the wheels on and was done?!

My glue must be a bit dodgy. Took time to set

To be fair smooth to smooth no lugs is always tricky and I've various stuff that probably would fall apart before it set unless I clamped it Cheesy Assuming the glue came out the tube at all Wink

A light sprinkle of Bicarb of Soda or Baking Powder will almost insta-set superglue. Very useful for fiddly joins ... and for gluing bits to your fingers if not used carefully Smiley

The water-slide decal paper has arrived for making the label tiles.  Waiting for the tiles (bases) to arrive to do a test run with plain paper prints before I commit ink to that.

So a box full of bases and movement trays has arrived. When Leon emailed me to say it was on its way I told him off as it was quarter to midnight, and he should be having some time to himself/family.

All packaged so well it looked like a standard kit, rather than a mix, some bespoke!

1 tile painted to check the decal will show up against that shade of green.

What's best to glue frames to bases, PVA or super glue?

Good to hear that it arrived safely, PVA will be fine and strong enough!

Lots of little wooden froggies have arrived today. Luckily the package  with two MDF storage trays was undamaged by the Hermes person ramming it through the letter box.

Have glued a few more Movement trays, but not doing much tonight, as the kids wanted to go bowling this afternoon - found out why afternoon not evening; unlimited games for a tenner per person.  Played 7 games. Legs are knackered.

Good job you can sit down whilst gluing MDF Wink

Hermes at least tried to force the package through the "right way round" then!
