Today I finished the construction of the top of the brake, despite this part of the brake that runs through the top of the carriage cover, so it will be fixed practically at the end of the construction, but I took advantage of the packaging in the brake construction and so this is already completed , Then make some adjustments and adjustments when mounted on the site, but easy. The next floor will be the construction of the upholstery of the seats and interior panels, everything will be lined with genuin leather, here I will show how this work is done. For now here are some photos of the end of the brake construction, I hope you like to see.

Continuing the construction of the brake system, in the images below it is possible to follow the progress of the brakes, in this case the construction of the rocker, which connects the brake bar tensioners to the brake drive crank. Since a part of the brake control works over the top of the carriage, and this is the last part to be made, this part of the brake will be suspended until there, however the chain and the control pulley are already started, the Pulley has a recess with the profile of the chain for sliding, do not become twisted, the chain is also already welded to the bar of the rocker. The photos for better understanding of this complex brake system, I hope you enjoy watching.

 Alignment of the rocker and tie rods to the brake rod

 The rocker consists of two parts one fixed and the other movable with 3 joints, the alignment and calibration of this part is very important for the proper operation of the brake contr
 Here the rocker is already fixed in place, and the rods of the brake rod are also already fixed and aligned on the site.
A first layer of primer has already been given to the rear fittings to protect these components


The chain sheave has a groove with the profile of the chain, so when the chain slides, do not curl

 The chain has already been welded to the control rod of the rocker,
As you can see this part of the brake control works over the top of the carriage, so it can only be terminated when it is placed, thus getting the brake finished for later.

Construction of folding steps, normally access to this type of vehicles only has 2 folding steps, but this carriage, as it is very high
She has 3 retractable steps which makes the construction a lot harder to do, as you can see the top skate is more than double that of the bottom skate, but today it's almost finished as you can see, I'm also working on the brake system, As you can see the joints and rods that connect the brake rod to the rocker are practically finished, but this whole system is still provisional since all these parts will work as in the real model, it is necessary to make several tests of operations and adjustments , Here are some photos for a better understanding of these moving parts.
