You wont believe this ,I primed the body and the bonnet plus the sprue with the buffers ,chimney covers and steps .
Cut of the buffers and fitted them them cut of the chimney covers and fitted them and guess what the sprue has vanished off  the planet along with the two little flat bits that I didnt know where to fit , the steps are not a problem I have some BHE ones in my spares box .but the carpet Dragon must have eaten the rest .   And I was using my modelers tray as well so its a mystery .
Val found the sprue somehow it was under the other settee now fitted the steps but still not sure where the other two bits go ,cant see anything on the drawing or on the photos ,but I guess I just cant see them .
Because its been warm today the top coat and transfers are done final varnish to do and it will be on the layout tommorow then just the shunters truck to wire up with the softer wire that Waz sent me to try.
Thats one benifit of being retired plenty of time to do what I want when I want
But we are still on standby to rush down to help Vals Mum if she needs us I would just move everything on to the table in the back room out of the way of our little dog Mitzy just incase she tried to help finish the Sentinal off

I'm looking forward to seeing all the photos. of the finished models.

May I, please, make two suggestions for the next models:
the London and South Western Railway B4 class 0-4-0T dock tank (as and the LSWR pattern water cranes (as used on the North Cornwall line; from photos. there seem to have been two designs) in both ground and platform mounted variants. (I don't know if there would be any copyright problems in buying an 00 LSWR water crane, scanning it and then 3D printing it in 2MM scale? I'd be happy to pay for an 00 one for that purpose.)

Back to the B4s, of the 25 built, two are preserved (BR no. 30096 "Normandy" and BR no. 30102 "Granville"), 30096 after industrial service, so they should have a wide appeal beyond LSWR, SR, and BR SR period modellers. (Plymouth Friary had a couple so, Cant Cove, will 'borrow' one for yard shunter, like at Winchester.) A B4 in industrial service or preserved could appear in almost any modelling time period. I'm guessing that fitting a 3D model onto a similar 0-4-0 chassis together with a resistor and DCC chip should be possible?

Big bad John which version have you got the SDJR has square windows and the steps are part of the body and Joyce has round windows and comes with a sprue with two steps four buffers two chimney covers and two other little flat thin  bits that I cant work out what they are and where they go. Perhaps someone on here or Alex if he sees this can tell me .

Bob it's the SDJR version but definitely no steps attached and none in the box. Alex has contacted me about it and is looking into getting some printed however I think this may be an expensive option for him just to replace two tiny steps so I think I will decline his offer and get the BHE ones you mentioned. Do you have a part number for them Bob so I can order some.

Just had a PM from Alex and he has already ordered the steps so I will be having those after all. He doesn't hang about does he and with customer service like this he should do well with his enterprise.
Top marks Alex  :thankyousign:

Hello all,,

I am glad to confirm the first drawings for etched plates have been sent to me:


I noticed the shed code is wrong (it should be 22c) but I have emailed to have this corrected:)

Cheers,

Alex

The number is small enough, but a shed plate. Honestly

Wow I didnt realise that the plates would have the smokebox number and shed code plates ,I have just spent ages putting smokebox numbers on but they are really too big so I can soon over paint them and stick the etched one on .
That will really make it a cracking model.
My one is happily pulling a shunters truck and three waggons but if you go to fast it tends to jump off on a bad joint as the loco is very light and although people have said there is plenty of room Im struggleing to see where I can add any weight ,I have as usual glued B H E white metal couplings front and rear and the shunter truck has pickups and permanetly coupled to the loco .
Well done Alex a great model , will look out for more from you in the future.

Hello,

I believe the triangular bits being referred to are the chimney covers:)

Cheers,

Alex

Hi Bob,
From what I can identify the parts are

Joyce kit

Buffers x 4, Steps x 2, sanders x 2, chimney covers x 2

I think that the (what I have called) sanders go in front of the engine - they look to be the part visible in the header photo on this site http://sentinel7109.blogspot.co.uk/p/what-is-sentinel-7109.html

SDJR Sentinel kit

Sander, chimney covers x 2, buffers x 4
this kit has a different version of the sander which still fits in the same place

That's how I'm attaching them anyway! :)

To be honest you could probably leave them off as they are so tiny, but now I've added the handrails I think I've committed myself (or should that be - I should be committed!)
