Seeing @mk1gtstu 's post about his Project Pecketts underlined how much my latest bodyshell, the Peckett OQ , improved upon my first, the B3 I designed 9 months ago.

Although I have the B3's I originally wanted, some of their cludginess has been bugging me, so I've updated the designs on Shapeways to better match the OQ:

Thinner handrails, a better chimney and cab rainstrips added. The securing bolt fitting has been removed - it's a snug fit and the bolt is not really needed. The fitting wasted tank space and the bolt, if tightened, always threatened to bend the body.
