The Modelling News
In the review I couldn't understand why ICM had the starting handle attached to the front of the chassis plus it was too short. I extended it with 1mm dia. polystyrene rod, glued it into place and forgot all about until I visited the Shuttleworth Collection, Bedfordshire here in the UK a couple of weeks ago.
The collection has a Fordson WOT and while looking at it I noticed that the starting handle was attached to the front of the chassis so ICM had it right. The handle has a spring on the shaft so obviously you push the handle in, crank the engine and when it starts the handle disengages via the spring.
Obviously this needed attention on the model so I removed the handle, made a new shaft then using fine fuse wire (the 5 amp stuff) I wrapped it around the shaft then glued it all into place.
Not a big deal I know but it was bugging me that I made this error. Anyway here's the before and after pics
