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.

Superb work. Real model engineering. I do wish there was an N Scale RTR 42xx.

Very nice, you have done a cracking job there, and not just one but two!

Thank you

actually making two is easier. One to figure out and the second as a clean build.

As you might expect the second is a marginally better runner, but both are as good as RTR or the DCC would just die.

One thought, the 2-8-2 runs better on curves than the 2-8-0 as the extra bogie stops it slewing and hunting in reverse.

A 42xx would be ideal for a Cornish layout but not a 72xx, although St Blazey did have 7209 from 1/51 to 10/52, so there is a (limited) precedent. I wonder what 7209 was transferred for?

Great work, nice to see others tackling impossible sound installs.  Don't forget the "howto" tutorial.   ;)

I have no interest in sound, but you've made a stonking job of the builds.
Any limitations as to curve radius, d'you think?

The limitation is my test track so about 10 inches.  Running pony first is fine but without the pony the leading flange can climb the track.  My guess would be 12 inch for reliable running.  The same applies to my P2.
