    Cutting the angle to the dangle = cutting piece longer then file and file until you get angle right Added brass angle going across the base at the gearbox and front end, added the rivets made from the riveter (from the small shop) still need to add the other row, made new engine mounts (out of plastic) and gearbox mount (out of brass) now to get the engine and gearbox at the right angle took this drawing and scaled it to 1:35 Made a jig with the angle needed then machined a spacer to go between engine and gearbox, then machined some aluminum tube to fit inside axles and then go to gearbox shaft Now got all parts glued in Until next time Regards Richard
