Could anyone with Fox bogies constructed from John Boyle etches please forward some photo examples of these bogies and any information on how they built them, thanks.

David,
Attached are some 7mm scale bogies built from John's etches, one part built and one complete. They assemble as the instructions although the brake shoes are awkward and the flange adjacent each wheel needs to be trimmed to avoid contact. I have a self drawn freehand sketch of the two main elements showing how they relate to each other but it has a watermark on it from a trial programme to get a perfectly good Canon scanner to work which is now not supported in Windows 10 by either Microsoft or Canon..

I can't help with drawings or photographs but have 4 sets of resin cast overlays, which may be of interest to you or any other 7mm modeller. Alongside is a set of duckets for a passenger break van.

I've built several of these bogies in 2mm scale and they are a bit of a fiddle. In that scale the brakes are too fragile to be practical, but can hardly be seen any way. I actually wrote the 7MM instructions for John and still have the file, but it's a MSWorks (.wps) one and I haven't anything which will open it without producing gobbledeygook. :( If anyone can open it and convert it to Word format, I can email it to them. I tried attaching it here, but got 'invalid file extension' message. :(

Discovered that I had a copy of Works and have opened the file and copied into a Word .docx document. Attached herewith.

David,
I have dug out and attach the scan which shows how the two main parts fold up and fit together. The end members are not soldered leaving an element of flexibility. Can't unfortunately get rid of the watermark!

Thank you all for the information, it’s all very useful, I have some etches but try as I might I couldn’t quite understand how John intended them to fir together, thank you for making things a bit clearer.
