BigGrin Hi Tony

Thanks for looking in and your comments, theres still the weathering to be done so although im close to the parts finish it may take a while longer to finish properly. Also im waiting with bated breath for the case to go on sale as its going to be a must have.

Regards

BigGrin Hi All

Pack 24, Made up the ash box and painted it, the instructions are not very clear here but to fit it I found that the removal of the rear fender block helped, I then fitted the boiler rails. Next it was the electric motor and drive assembly all going together without any problems. Lastly the brake assembly's were added again all fitted like a dream. Last pack will be next month and then its some weathering. More soon.

Regards

Awesome paint job Andy.Did you try to motor yet? it is really noisy.DOnt forget to move that boiler band screw out of the way when you fit the body onto the running gear or it will shred the silicone tubing when the motor runs (ask me how I know!!)

BigGrin Hi All

Well here she is the last pack done and the finish of a very enjoyable build, I was intending to do more to her on the weathering side but I think she looks great as she is to be honest. I may add the white stripe along the side but maybe not. at the moment to me she looks like an old workhorse that's loving cared for by her crew even though the years are catching up with her.

Regards
