Thanks everyone for positive feedback :cool:

Assembled upper springs bed.
You need to glue a ring from two pieces: inner and outer.
So i bent them and glued together asymmetrically, which gave a little tab to close the ring.







Also spent several evenings to cut bogie frame parts
At this stage i used three (!) different thickness carboards: 0.7, 1, 1.5 mm

A neat trick with gluing inside and outside ring parts. The last paper model I built with inner and outer ring parts I looked at and thought 'How can I close this ..." and came up with the offset and flaps.
This is by far and away, the best build I've seen. Great Work.

These look like production parts like those I was used to seeing at Sikorsky Aircraft, even the finish. They look like treated, ready to use production parts. In fact, they are. ;)
