An assembled single unit car

Articulation between wells on a five unit car. Note the lower (left) and upper (right) pivot bars

If the 5-unit car is to run on tight curves, fit trucks, place on track, and check clearance of suspension arms (arrowed) and file back as necessary for clearance on the tightest curve the car will need to negotiate, (preferably before painting)

After painting the assembled wells, and before fitting etches, bend the end walkway on the half-etched fold lines, as shown (left), and after fitting to car (right), along with the other etch for the end units
