Details complete and liquid lead added.  One last scrub to get rid of flux and glue residue and it will be ready to undercoat.

Back to watching paint drying again :D





One observation on the scale rivets created by half etching, they are wear points and on two occasions I have noticed silver spots on the paintwork where the paint on the rivets have worn off.  To get round this I'm letting the paint cure properly then a final coat and then a "hard" varnish over the transfers.

A bit of micro soldering to assemble the cylinders.  The cylinders are tube brass and they are also lined with a tube to ensure the piston runs straight and true.  The photos show long nickle silver shafts which are loose and will be cut to length at the next stage.  The final shape of the cylinder boxes will be shaped with Ispon filler.

Valve gear was built today and the final assembly of the 72XX done.  I still have to drill and tap a screw to hold the body, however, apart from this it is ready to paint.

These models will have DCC sound if I can get it to fit in the space I have allowed.
