A little more to share. Pilot braces are in;

I was able to use Precision Scales's casting for C-16 braces.

Frank, Mike Thank you.

I'm now done with the front end.









I now move the back side of the engine to add a few details. A compressor goes into the notch in the running boards, a air tank under the cab and frame, glaze the windows and add a crew.

I might takes a little brake first.

On May 8, 2017, I shared my first drawing and announced my Mogul building project. Tonight With this picture I share what I am pretty sure are the last prints I need for the Two engines. That I think is a milestone that needs to be marked. Engine #5 needs very little, These parts, window glazing and a decoder. Engine #6 needs Total final assembly and painting. Both need decals. I'm debating whether to decal #5 now of after #6 is also ready.
Here's the last prints;



Oh! they are the main Air reservoir and a support bracket for the compressor (a PSC casting). I used material found in the 1888 Car Builders Encyclopedia to guild their design.

The Builders Plate looks particularly sharp. And the crosshead pump is a nice touch, seldom modeled.

Thank you Dave,
I'm really glad the pumps worked out. The plates are super nice but when you zoom in close enough to reed them you see the flaws in my painting. OH well, the whole picture is pleasing.

99.8% assembled;


Here's a close-up of the air brakes system;


I just need to add the cab steps and then more painting and decals.

Bob,

It's been great watching you build this engine. It's given me renewed hope of getting my projects done. All I need is a little more patients and take a bit longer to finish a project.

Job well done and very interesting process. Much enjoyed watching this project come to a completion even if there is .2% to be finished yet.
