Finney 2251 pt2

A little more work on the 2251 

 

the smokebox was rolled and fitted to the boiler, before soldering to the firebox and footplate.  
 

Next up was the cab, adding the beading to the cutouts, followed by the handrails before soldering the sides into position on the footplate.  I much prefer Malcolm Mitchell’s design than Finneys in this area, the sub etch for the cab.  
 

finally the roof was added along with its formers.  
 

With that the core of the loco body is competed, the build will now enter the detailing stage.  There are still a lot of etched parts to solder on...
