Canley Phantom
« on: June 18, 2015, 09:43:34 PM »
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.

but your anti-grav device in the tender works really well Charley!

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.
