Mock-up and Compare

Posted on January 23, 2018. Filed under: Project progress |

Today’s Scalefour Society Craven Area Group get-together gave me the incentive to see how it was all looking.

1649 180123 4701       1649 versus 1638

The boiler, cab and bunker sub-assemblies are individually bolted to the footplate, and the panniers are bolted to the cab. The masking tape around the tanks keeps the upper works reasonably tidy in the absence of solder and glue. I’m now adding more detail and, as luck would have it, Kevin Pile’s “The Pannier Papers No.5 16XX” is there to help me (thanks, Roger).

The next big job is to finish the chassis before I make the splashers and consider other footplate detail.
