BigGrin Hi All
Just a couple of pics of the completed [well undercoated still waiting for paint to arrive] smoke box. I havent fixed the smoke stack as yet or anything else, the reason for not fixing the smoke stack is there will be a spark arrester assembly to be fixed below it and not fixing it will enable a better alignment of the parts

Looking good Andy, though try and keep paint off the rear boiler mount flange, as the next boiler ring is a tight fit without paint.

BigGrin Hi Alan
I know how you feel about trying to resist new models it can be hard, she certainly will be a talking point as there is a sound box that will have an original d51 engine recording on it and the drive train is moved by an electric motor so sound and movement bonusssssssssssssssssBigGrin Drool LOL Drool Drool

BigGrin Hi Andy
Thanks for the comments much appreciated, yes I have painted the inside of the smoke box area because there should be a plate at the rear of this area that will have the boiler pipes from the fire box area. So the area here will be smoke and ash blackened. Hope this explains it but I guess you may already know about this area on a steam train

BigGrin Hi All
Finally got the paint I sent for and have painted up the parts to see how it looks. The paint has a purpleish black look that in my opinion just about recreates the look of many weathered loco's I have seen and im quite happy with the results

That looks nice Andy and I agree about the colour, it has that nice faded/oily black appearance that you see on old steam locomotives? A few stain marks down the side of the boiler and that will look very realistic indeed!!

Looking good so far mate!! CoolThumpUp
