Finally finished all the constructional work. Well almost I have not added the covers to the firebox shoulders.

 

The jobs since the last update

 

First off was to add the firebox washout plugs, no holes or plugs were in the kit so I fortunately had some nice brass ones.

The rear buffers were the first of the white metal castings to be added.

The top feed was then soldered in place with some copper wire for the pipes. The smokebox door was next, the lamp irons handrail and dart were soldered on but I needed to use epoxy resin, as were the steam pipes. I needed something with a little filling capability.

The Back head was finished as far as this one goes. Not the best I have seen but once inside it will look the part I think. I may add a little more detail to the cab after painting, but we will see.

Here are the three main bits just resting together I wanted to get an overall picture to see if I had forgotten anything obvious. As you will see from above I had forgotten something. They will be added tomorrow and finish the the cleaning ready for the painting to start on Monday.

Lets hope the painting goes as well as the the V3. Then it's time to sit down and do lots of lining.
