You're a star!

I think this is the only locomotive class I know of that started off with a Belpaire, and then was subsequently rebuilt with a round-top!

B12 and D16?

I have uploaded it.   It is not cheap but that's Shapeways for you. 

https://www.shapeways.com/product/8N7BJ29WV/rod-belpaire-firebox-conversion-or-for-similar?li=shops&optionId=163712055

Now as it has not been test printed, Shapeways will moan to me about the tapers on the side being too thin, and they will no doubt remove the feathered edge, however that where you would need to fill to blend to the boiler so should not present a problem.  The print is a bit longer than needed to allow the cab end to be adjusted to the spectacle glasses version you choose.  hope this helps.

In need of cab number plates (on order), some coal and to blacken wires and pickups, but substantially there.  Will now sit on my shelf to allow paint varnish and the rest to harden and there will be a final touch up when the plates arrive, with possibly a little weathering.




A quick aside, the plates I added either side of the worm and painted black look much better than a brass worm showing and I will do this again on other models.

Didn't know of them ...  :P
