Take care and stay safe.
Hi , Just seen this and as Grahame says ! Hope you find time to read some of the books we all seem to acquire, while sun out it is perhaps part of a modellers rainy day scenario at this time.
Thank you all, again! A mixture of sitting and standing seems to work at the moment.
I did some metal bending. The bunker rear plate was annealed what seems like months ago and conformed nicely. The side etches have to have the front of the tanks formed by bending, and that worked remarkably well. I think I will fit the support cages to the running plate tomorrow, and then sort out the overlays. There’ll be a fair amount of fettling required for the bunker, but I have a nice clear photo of a preserved loco's rump to work with.
I noticed the cab front plate on some locos, originally built with the circular spectacles above the firebox crown, shows where the holes were filled. I need to check whether the chosen loco for this build showed such a feature, or whether it was built with just the side spectacles from new. Photo picking is something I can do in relative comfort!
Get better soon Heather from a wet Spain.
Good to see you modelling again.
Hi Heather , I had a friend who has since passed away but he couldn't model sitting down . He for the most part scratch built everything in his workshop and reckoned he would waste too much time getting up and down to go from his bench to the lathe or the drill or the vice so remained standing .
I managed to get the support cages fitted. I also made up the little doodad that let the top lamp sit on top of the bunker and not be destroyed by coal being dropped on it.
I think I need to fit the cab floor and some other bits before I get too carried away.
A bit late to the party again, get well soon and I hope you don't have to wait to long for a hospital appointment. Glad to see you back modelling.
Let's rehab together - what do you want to compare?
Hmm, I'm not sure that would be good idea.
Nothing to report from the bench. Mrs Mojo wandered off yesterday, but I think I can hear her in the other room. I’ll try and entice her back for this afternoon.
