Cab soldering internals now complete, boiler halves soldered and chimney and dome dressed up (castings are poor). Middle splashers soldered in place after much fiddling!

Picture shows dry fit of components, the only things soldered in place are the center splashers as referenced above.

Tacked the front splashers in and then tinned the brass handrail knobs (the smokebox one is simply put in a wider hole so that it drops flush) the knobs were then lined up with a piece of wire and then soldered from the rear with low melt solder (the smoke box knob has a little low melt from the front as well)

Smokebox door, chimney, dome and cab are still dry fitted for now.

After spending all morning fitting and fettling the dome and chimney, i was pretty happy....see first pic

I then went to look at the location of the whistles from some reference books when I found the dimensions were odd when i measured the boiler...the hole for the dome was in the wrong place! The dome should be above the splasher. I was in two minds to leave it but thought  better of it. I removed the dome, drilled a new locating hole and located in a new place as well as moving the handrail knob. Then had to fill all the holes left behiond by the dome and handrail knob move. Now i am happy. I also filed down the boiler bands at the front as they are now in the wrong place. Lots more filling and sanding left to do before I am happy.

Hello Darren,
Looking at the Photo in your Post(Pic 1) doesn't appear to correspond with the actual model. The hand-rail knob and dome were in-line on the Photo and the spacing between chimney, dome and whistle appeared equi-distant which made your 1st model picture appear correct. Having moved the dome and hand-rail knob back-wards(approx. over middle-splasher) would appear to have mis-balanced the distances between chimney, dome and whistle. So, Darren, the model did look-right and now doesn't. I hope I'm wrong, mate,
Kind Regards,
Michael Thornberry.

Thanks Michael, the picture you refer to is incorrect (link here : http://www.google.com.sg/imglanding?q=barney+0-6-0+17695&um=1&hl=en&rlz=1T4ADRA_enSG403SG404&biw=1899&bih=841&tbs=isch:1&tbnid=Igml2Zzv-7rhhM:&imgrefurl=http://www.vectis.co.uk/Page/ViewAuctionLots.aspx%253FAuctionId%253D20%2526DayNo%253D1%2526Section%253D402&imgurl=http://www.vectis.co.uk/AuctionImages/20/1412_l.jpg&ei=LcVKTZ7hJJGsrAeAzL2kDg&zoom=1&w=800&h=421&iact=hc&oei=LcVKTZ7hJJGsrAeAzL2kDg&esq=1&page=1&tbnh=108&tbnw=231&start=0&ved=1t:429,r:0,s:0 (ie it was built as per the instructions) in that it as well has the dome ahead of the splasher (its the same problem) although apparently equidistant is incorrect for prototype - the pictures I am referring to are those of the prototype which show the dome above the splasher. I couldnt live with it at the front of the splasher. The distances between cab and centre of dome and centre of dome to smoke box are now correct (the latter being one and half times longer than the former) which although apparently out of balance in terms of spacing are correct.

As I cant print the pics out of my books, I have linked here a model with the correct spacing (this appears to be a different model basis as this has the boiler washout plugs that this DJH hasnt) :

Hi Darren, Neat build job! The joy's of white metal. Dome and chimney bases can be tricky to get seated on the boiler/smoke box, Getting the base curve to match, An old trick curve and tape some emery cloth to the boiler.Then gently run the dome base back and forth, helps to get the profile right. Of course if there is a long fixing stub for a hole in the boiler this can be a problem!
I agree with your working off photo,s of the original loco in steam.Its suprising how many variations of one class there are.
Some kits were based of original factory drawings so there could have been design changes during the actual build. I believe this was quite a common occurance.
all the best,
Derek

Photobucket seems to no longer accept videos as the thing just sits and sits and does nothing. Youtube sucked up the video in a blink of an eye!

You're also a fim maker extraordinaire Darren. :thumbs

Nice little vid and she runs well.  Was that at full throttle ?  I wonder how she runs at slower speeds ?

All soldering now completed, now lots of filling, sanding and fettling before priming.

I have added additional lines for whistles as it didnt look right without them and also now fixed the whitemetal brake shoes on with epoxy resin to the brass chassis. Now going to dunk the whitemetal in bicarb of soda solution to neutralise any remaining traces of flux before filling/sanding and priming.

After working quite frankly some insane hours over the last few months, I decided to steal a few hours this afternoon by finishing work early and getting on with priming the loco.

After applying new boiler bands using insulating tape, I then sprayed the loco with Phoenix Precision HR Dark Green - this was my first attempt at using the airbrush and i am very pleased with how it it went on (its a matt finish - on the first coat i went too close and it went glossy but on the second coat I had the hang off it and now its matt again) - I applied two coats (the roof gets painted black)
