oops, just remembered had this photo of all the etches, much better, as said previously I had to cut almost all the spring detail from the chassis as I could not get the pick ups around them ( could have possibly done it from above?)

Hi! got some more photos of the build, going well




Tanks and cab fitted



Fire box and boiler fitted, it was easier than I thought



Framing fitted, plus front of loco (can't remember what its called :doh:)



Started to roll the front of the boiler/smoke box - front bogie to one side that was made up also.



Started making this up that goes in front of the tanks, no idea what it is though  :(



Another view, added steps later also.



Boiler ready to be soldered to the formers, though I did not use them in the end, I used some brass tube I had bought previously.



Boiler ready to be soldered, all trussed up with locking wire.



General view with the unidentifiable part circled with steps added, you can also see the dome thing that goes on the front footplate, filed up from a white metal sprue



Here it is with boiler test fitted, chimney, etc



Well that's it for now, cab roof to be done, front footplate fittings, and steps for the cab which are going to have to be handmade  :worried:

I might add in the photos you can usually pick out other bits under construction, like the front bogie, the cylinders that have been slightly widened out for now.

Coming along really well.  Have you built an etched kit before?  You are making it look easy.

Hi Belstone, I made up several many moons ago in "OO", so a lot of it has been coming back to me. Something I will be posting soon here is an idea I have had to try a 2mm scale chassis kit re-guaged to N, running on code 55 track, I expect it not too work but who knows? thanks for the info about the can motors on your scratch-bodge thread, will be buying some also with a view to re-motor various locos .

Thanks for all the pics of your progress! I'm getting ready to start a WW Caledonian McIntosh 439 class, so it is good to see someone else's build and process! Looking great :)

Hi, been a while since I did anything with this, life just keeps getting in the way!



made up the cab roof, fitted the safety valve and dome thing at the front.



Boiler, ready for fitting smoke box door



fitting the buffers



The bits for the water tank filler caps, had to make these up as not available commercially



Tank fillers in place



Drilling the holes for the cab hand rails

Some excellent modelling...more than I would want to tackle. Thank you for sharing these photos of your skillful work.

The 42xx/72xx is a loco that I'm surprised has not been taken up by Farish or Dapol.

Another admirer here, having seen the work involved I'm glad I didn't attempt the "Schools" that Dapol have taken so long to turn out! way beyond my skills  :wonderfulmodelling:

Sods law says that they are just waiting for AJP to finish his before announcing one.

Some excellent modelling here - good to see the old skills of etched kit building are still alive and well.

Cheers,
Alan

Well after a very hot summer, with lots of work & home improvement mods, managed to get back to the 42xx this weekend.


Fitted cab hand rails, plus the single hand rail on the boiler


Buffer beam supports, smoke box door removed, as seemed a bit wonky.


Cab steps made up, after several attempts!


Side view


Smoke box hand rail fitted,plus a little filler


Front view, will need some filling around the smoke box saddle also. Just the tank vents to fit, then maybe the cab steps, then into the paint shop  :D :D

not meant as a criticism, but the chimney looks a little large for this type, I would suggest Nbrass locos 23001 chimney as a replacement. Otherwise, it looks great - what chassis will you use?

Regards,

Alex
