More pipework, a part of a build that I actually really enjoy and always end up doing more detail than I intended at the start. So here's the steam pipes to injectors with the control valves made out of fine wire and some old electical insulation. Note new Hornby pipework below the cab.

I've also fitted the safety valves from the donor bodyshell and some nice Bachmann sprung buffers. The reverser rod is some mains wiring cable I found lying around that was the right diameter.

The body fixing under the cab has been done, I gently prised out the threaded insert from the donor body and drilled the boss out on the resin kit 4mm. The insert was then very carefully pressed into place. I would have just drilled and tapped the casting but couldn't find my 6 BA tap blink.gif
