Welcome back to this weeks blog,
as announced last week, I’ll focus on the boiler back-head. Since this is a large scale model, the cab interior will be well visible and needs some decoration as well.
The parts are scratch-built from styrene, brass and wires. For hand wheels, I use brass-castings. The parts for the steam manifold are made on from brass on the lathe.
The steam regulator lever with link-rod was replaced as I didn’t like the first attempt.
For now, the boiler is complete. Let’s see how much of the details will be still visible once the cab is in place. Additional interior parts like Johnson bar, hand brake and more pipework will be added together with the cab floor.
