Here is the next pack update which contains the following stages.

Stage 37: The firebox 2
Stage 38: The boiler band
Stage 39: Sand spreader pipe main cocks
Stage 40: Building up the dome
Stage 41: The sand spreader tubes
Stage 42: The firebox bottom
Stage 43: The backhead
Stage 44: The running board
Stage 45: The running board 2
Stage 46: The running board 3

As usual all the parts are great quality but was a little disappointed that the firebox wasn't lit and the doors didn't open as they did on the D51.

Thanks for looking

BigGrin Looking good Al and nice work.

One tip would to be to fit all of the running boards on both sides of the boiler before fitting the sand pipe holding brackets in place. Just in case they may need adjusting.
