The O gauge Jinty is coming along nicely. I have the footplate, side tanks boiler, firebox and nearly all of the smokebox completed, ready to put together, and hopefully I will start the cab and bunker tomorrow. Detailing will take considerably longer of course, adding boiler bands handrails, sand boxes and splashers gets fiddly, the smokebox door will also require a good deal of work.as it will have to be shaped by hand. I spent over an hour getting the curves on the top of the firebox sanded to the right profile.
Still need to find a source of boiler fittings (Chimney, dome and safety valves, also tank fillers) does anyone have some suitable 'O' gauge bits in their spares box?
Had a bit of a problem with the 'C' class repaint, the transfers I had were over 30 years old, and refused to stick. I have sent to Fox for new ones.
