Today i picked the chassie from my local model shop & once i had primed a standard gaugr coach i started to chop the chassie

& i have now finish the chassie
heres a pic of it showing the cut at the front & cyinder covers fitted


& heres 2 of the chassie fitted to the loco body also today i have fitted the iner tanks from brass sheet & fixed the boiler onto the rest of the body



i have filled the smoke box with weight & once i have fitted the couplings i will add more under the foot plate as its still a littel back heavy to help with this i am replacing the cab roof for a brass one
