Frank

She looks really smart now much better than her RTR condition.

I presume you got most of the bits from mainly trains?

Did you use the dremel slitting saw to remove the old smokebox door.

Will they be a finer scale wheel Frank and what are you going to do about quartering?

I have to admit I wouldn't know where to start detailing a steam locomotive, but that looks great! Looking forward to more installments on this thread :)

Reminds me of Triggers broom in Only Fools and Horses. He said "I've had this broom for 17 years. It's had 12 new handles and 15 new heads!"

There cannot be much of the original loco left, but it looks great. And it's Great Western. To help Henry Parrot, there are several differences between this type and a King. If you look hard you should be able to spot most of them :twisted:

Looks terrific Frank. I wondered whether or not these detailing kits were actually worthwhile, now I know they are. I wouldn't know where to begin to fit new wheels though so are you going to include this in your thread, with pictures? :D :D :D :wink:

Not only is it a most impressive bit of weathering Frank, it's also a pretty good photo. I can feel the atmosphere there. Super job.

I had some trouble once with a similar model, ran with a jerking motion, so I took the connecting rods off to test the wheels individually and had one hell of a job getting the rods back on again. I thought it was a simple matter of fastening them back on when the holes lined up. Not so. They went back on easily enough but the wheels were locked solid. I played around with them for hours before they worked correctly.

Remember the Rubik's Cube Bob - a bit like loco wheels !!! :shock:

At the time I was struggling I didn't even know there was such a thing as a quartering tool. Who needs one anyway, it's simply a matter of connecting the rods back up again isn't it. Wrong, wrong, wrong, as I found out to my cost. :roll:

Frank, I've been watching this thread with interest, as detailing is something I haven't done, always taking the easy option on running my stock straight out of the box. :oops: :oops:

I'm sure there are others like me, so perhaps you could do a simple "how to" so that we have some idea about making a start :?:

A thread in the Hints & Tips section would be much appreciated and of tremendous use.
Also, is this sort of thing covered in any modelling books :?: Anything i can find seems to refer back to the days before we had such good models, when even I could find something that needed improving :!: :!: :!:
