    the brakes...............

    Dear friends,

    after three weeks in the south of France, I start again with my model.
    Sadly the conditions for modeling were not good (40°C), so I spent my time at the beach :thumb::rolleyes:.
    Anyway..............here is the progress from todays afternoon.

    The compressed air vessel

    As mentioned before I use the laser-detail parts, although they have to be covered with the parts out of the kit

    the parts in overview

    the driving rods..............

    Hi folks,

    after finishing the steam cylinders, notice they are different in size, because of the function as a compound engine (woohw, do you understand what I mean??), I started with the driving linkage.
    First I made the main driving rods.

    detail view.....

    That`s all for today. I hope you enjoy the pics........

    Its looks like youve done quite a good job there.
    Do the connecting rods move?

    Sand dome and steam dome......

    Hi folks,

    because of the nice weather it was only a bit time for modeling.

    So I only made the steam- und sand dome. Just have a look

    @ Tjblundell: thanks for the kind comment. No, the driving linkage is not movable. In my experience the cardboard is to narrow abd the model becomes to fragile. In former locos I tried that but the success was only a small one :rolleyes:

    smoke stack and the vessels door........

    Hi Folks,

    just made the smoke stack and a part of the locos face....the vessels door.

    The convex shape of the door was not coated or finished in any other way, that`s pure cardmodeling. I`m astonished...........

    the door

    and the "face"

  19. This istruly a beautiful model. I love the colors as model itself. I would build it myself but I think you have set the bar too high.
