There’s a slight delay in producing the first CKH semi-kit. Hurricane Sandy took out the manufacturer’s power so I’m waiting for them to restore services. The original estimate to have the prototype ready was about today, but now there’s going to be just a bit of delay.
In other news, in addition to the plastic chassis and boiler kit, the semi-kit will also include precision laser cut wood parts for the cab, the pilot, and the pilot beam, so now you’ll also have authentically wooden cab and pilot. The cab is going to be very slightly over dimensioned due to the type of wood and machining requirements, but it will also have recessed panels.
