Hi,

the first paintshop is done, a suitable roof is built but not painted, and the Fleischmann 9mm Chassis fits quite well. Sorry for the poor quality, there is not much natural light at 9:00 pm in Germany :!:




Like the little girl notes, the boiler is still missing, and there is some work needed at the coal box. But I'm very pleased with the result so far.

Hi,

a little update: whilst the temperatures raised a little bit, I spend some time in the basement and make the boiler, chimney etc. from brass. There is only a little detailing work on the smokebox and maybe the backplate left.








Now I have enough weight in the loco... But where can I spray the paint at the new parts...L: Btw. The companion on the left side is an O9 diesel from Steve Bennets pepper7.

While the initial build already had a lot of charm the boiler and stack really pull it all together. Nice job.

This is beautifully done. i think you will find success with it. If you are interested in marketing it, I might be able to help.
