Hi, I thought I'd share a picture of the part built loco I'm finishing. It's named after a famous legendary coventry apparition. I think it was started in the 50's and I've finished the tender, cab, cylinders and the motion that wasn't there. In total there are probably 5 to 6 builders handiwork amongst it.

I normally spend my dinner times at work on it. Here I'm working on the casing for the smithees boiler. As to quality I think most purists would have a fit. Bodged bits here and non scale screws there. If it ends up looking like a pacific I'll be happy even if it looks like an austerity one.

Here's a couple more one with the boiler casing on for size and the tender.

Progress has been steady. Boiler casing bent and bashed into placed. Didn't have quite the length so I've made a joining piece that I'll hide behind a band.

Went to paint up the running boards only to find the paint frozen. Such are the joys of the weather in Scotland.

Snowbound now.
