Recently got the full kit to go with the D51 I have. This will build straight from the box and will be updated on here as packs.

Pack 1 contains stages 1-4

Stages 1 and 2 is the smokebox,door and funnel assembly.
Stage 3 deals with the coupling rods on the wheels and in stage 4 the chimney, spark arrester and blast pipe are assembled and fitted.
