Subframes - Heljan Details

Heljan Side Detail

This section applies if you are not going to fit any of the brass detailing parts to the bogie. Note that these are ideas only and have not been tried out in practice.

The diagram shows the positioning of the Heljan bogie side detail relative to the brass components. Modify the side detail mouldings and/or brass outriggers to mount the mouldings on the bogie subframe.

The brake detail mouldings supplied by Heljan can also be fitted. Possibly a way is to drill 0.6mm through the top of each brake hanger and mount them on 0.6mm brass wire rods passed through the end stretchers and mainframe. Do note that fitting those plastic details will severely restrict the turn of the bogies.
