A Bird for Brent pt5

The Fatadder


A little more progress today.


first up the smoke box step and lamp iron have been soldered into place.  


The next job was one that I’ve been dreading.  For some reason the cab windows were misshapen, with more of an L shape than the rectangular prototype.  The solution was to solder a backing piece into the from scrap etch and then flood the front with solder before filing to shape.   Much happier with the shape of the windows now.


Moving on to the tender, the rear handrails have been soldered into position as have the rear steps.  The lamp irons will be next which will finish the tender work.


tomorrow it’s back to the loco and adding the washout plugs to the other side.
