A Bird for Brent pt3

The Fatadder


Today the focus has been the tender, again with minor repairs and adding a scratch built step.   I think eventually I will replace these with the Mainly Trains etch. 

Bearings have been fitted to the sub chassis, which now runs very sweetly.  Finally the nameplates and numbers have been painted black.


I now need to place an order with Gibson for the washout plugs, Mud hole covers, boiler back head and superheater cover.

Also order some archers rivet transfers (plus of course fit the above)

Other than the fitting of the above, the other jobs are:

Fit lamp irons to tender rear 

Fit tender rear handrails

Refit handrails to loco

Rebuild the front bogie, it’s a bit crooked and not great detail and I am thinking the best thing to do is start from scratch. 


If I had the parts it would be finished this week.  Unfortunately a potential blown turbo in my wife’s Mercedes might cause something of a delay...
