You don't..As it's raining, I might arrange my collection of Ikea allen keys from over the years
No tools PhilP? how do you drive in the dowel if, say you were someone who was sadly hammerless
Yep, on the one hand sounds dodgy, but their stuff is usually meticulously researchedYou don't..
Slip it in the slot, and slide.. Must admit to being dubious, but table legs that just slot in?
Just done a pair of those meself David!Having set aside the two buildings that I have started, to await paint, I have made a start on the third building that Father Christmas delivered for the Claptowte Railway, a Thorley Miniatures Signal Box. I have cleaned up the resin castings, washed them to remove any mould release agent, glued together the four walls and filled any gaps where the walls join. The next step will be to spray with grey primer. I have decided not to fit the roof until after I have painted the walls as it will then be easier to fit the door and window frames once they have also been painted.

David, I just glued the (wooden?) treaders to the brick supports.I have now sprayed the bare shell of the Thorley signal box and am currently cleaning up the castings of the rest of the component parts. I have an issue with the steps up to the signal box door. There are no exploded diagrams to show assembly and I am relying on the excellent set of photographs, accompanying the sales offer on eBay, that show various views of the finished model. The steps defy engineering logic with no visible means of support for the treads. I am going to have to rethink them and come up with a believable modification.

Brill look forwards to that, this is my thread on the Red loco. Has got pushed back a little due to the want of couplings (arrived) and some detail that will arrive when it arrives.
