|Thread: Drawing errors for LBSC Maisie|
I built a Masie and found that the reverser frame needs to be moved to the rear of the footplate for a bit more operating room, as in the position shown on the drawing the reverser when in full forward gear is nearly up against the backhead making it difficult to hook a finger around to move the lever back to mid gear or reverse, and that backhead gets hot !!
