Just added bunker railings, fiddly but worth it.

I can only make some changes as others would require parts of the original model to be disassembled, however the bunker railings are so distinctive they had to be added.

Those coal rails look nice and fine, good job in their construction and fitting!

What are you planning to do about the missing cab steps?

Probably similar to the front steps as originally built. from sheet brass.  If i use a casting they may look too different.  They will have to be attached to the chassis.

@Snowwolflair
Im wondering what you are going to do re the doors? On the body you bought it looks like the doorway was painted in black? Is it possible to cut out the doorways? From the protype drawing it looks like the door is set back behind the main body? I maybe wrong, but its a distinctive feature imho.
The bunker railings look excellent btw.
Cheers

That's the modification too far due to the way it has been made.  Painting will be fine by the time I give it depth shadows with a lining pen, and the rest.

I wondered whether it might not be possible due to the original construction. Shame though. However, I'm sure it'll look fine judging from your other work. One thing is for sure; It'll be far better off coming from your workbench rather than mine!

Still needs speed adjusted and the steam synchronised.

Now the Crimson has cured I'm starting to block in the black. 

Only first coat and thin so still patchy but it gives a good impression of how it will look especially with white lining.

I'm modifying the Fairburn drivers steps with solid infill.  they are slightly different from the original but are there already and well rooted in the chassis so a few extra bits will improve their look whilst keeping their tolerance to being damaged.

The paint and patina are getting there.  All the detailing and transfers to add, again after the paint has time to harden.

Slow progress it cannot be rushed.

I'm using the transfers I have printed and they are looking the part.

One side done, just a few trims to do, then let it harden before tackling the other side.
