It has been slow progress mainly because detailing is like that.

 

 

Here are some of the parts. First off is the injectors. It helps to do a left and right instead of two lefts.

The next is the steam exhaust ejector. This I found is too long. It needs the pipe between the elbow and the ejector about half it's length.

Then it is the two small oil pots fro the front platform step. Also there is a pear shaped fitting for the smoke box, I think it is to do with the superheater, Not a very good photo of it.

I have put the pipes onto the platform oilers. I just need to make a representation of I think the atomiser that you will see later sat between the larger one and the smokebox.

The next are the tank front oil boxes.

The first to be added to the body were the tank front boxes mainly as they are easy to do. A bit of practice. The eagle eyed of you will of noticed the tank steps have been changed the originals were to small. They are now at the front step up.

The left and right platform oilers were next and took some time to do. I do not know if it is right but looks better than nothing. I want to get back to the Victorian locos without all this visible nonsense.

The final photos are of the tender rear with all but the vacuum pipe in place.

Hopefully some more progress tomorrow.

The lubricators and pipe runs on the Ivatt "2"s can drive you mad, but there are some very helpful photos of preserved examples on Flickr.

I have looked at many photos and the more I looked the worse it became. Most seem to disappear between the frames. A coat of black paint and no one will know they are there.

Brilliant - centre stage for certain!!

 

How does one learn to do this or does one just go at it ?

 

Thanks for the inspiration!

Thanks Christopher

 

When I started modifying Airfix kit and building balsa wood aircraft you had to learn by your mistakes, Now with places like RMweb it is so much easier to learn what to do.

 

The most important thing with model making is to follow what you see in the real world. Never copy models

I would rather be doing an Adam's loco. All the veins are on the inside. Your 02 is looking good.
