DJH Duke of Gloucester - firebox and cab details



This was quite satisfying. Most of the external pipework for the firebox end was either missing, mullered or just plain wrong, so armed with my trusty copper stripped from bell wire and some bits from the Crownline detailing kit I have ended up with this






So to the next problem - no backhead was present on the model, so half an hour with a spare Hornby Evening Star bodyshell and a razor saw we have a passable representation of a backhead :)




Not much else to do now before paint - handrails to refit and one front footstep has come adrift (again!). The loco came with aftermarket sprung buffers, but they were round. So I've filled the bufferbeam holes with W/M solder and re-drilled smaller to take some Bachmann oval sprung buffers.


The tender body has already received a few coats of primer and awaits the loco body :)
