Fantastic looking progress, and ideas Dave. Thanks for the added proto air filter picture for us to visualize. You are turning out a great looking loco there!

Your really adding the detail. Great job. Looking forward to the next post.

Be careful out there on the roads with the Holiday coming!

Thanks Louis and Jerry!

I spent a lot of time with my girlfriend and her son this weekend and didn't get a lot of modeling time.

I did get a few things done though.

I made an exhaust stack for it instead of the casting that came with it.

I built one for another critter I did that I made a heat shield for.

I'm a truck driver and like the look.

I also edited my drawing for the roof and made it 2mm wider, cut it out of thin brass sheet and worked it with my hands to get the shape closer to the curve of the roof and attached it with 2 part fast setting epoxy.

After it was set I rubbed my thumb over the side edges to get the bend on them.







I still need to make a small ring to clean up the bottom edge where I was nibbling at it to get the height I wanted and got into my drilled holes.

The other little bit of free time I had I used to download and install Autodesk Fusion 360 and go through the first lesson from a YouTube series for beginners on working with it.

I'd like to get a 3D printer but my simple cad program doesn't do 3D and I want to be sure I can handle the program before I spend any money on a printer.

Later
Have a great day everyone.

Air filter and stack look great! What is that plate with PO under the grill?

When making "critters" bumpy - bent - crooked look right in place. Leave smooth and clean for those other guys.

Itís part of the casting.
Maybe a joke by Yorke?
Look closer and itís not PO.
Itís POS.

Piece of sh?t.

Dave great looking critter and I like the details you've added. After doing Gn15 for awhile critters hold a special place for me.

LMAO!


It's killin me how slow I'm progressing with is.
Only so many hours in a day.

I'm still making detail bits.
One of the guys who did a test build added some weights to the rear of the cab.
I thought they looked interesting so I made a set just to have a go and maybe add them to mine.





I've also ordered some etchings of louvers so I'll wait to see what I can do with those before I commit to these.

On one of the photos I have found online that matches this very closely, there is a box on the left side near the front of the hood.

I decided to try and make one out of brass sheet.

I drew a rectangle with 3 sides and printed it on some card stock. Then I put some blue masking tape over the print and put the card through the printer again to get the cut out on the tape. Then I put the tape on some brass sheet and cut it out and bent it freehand with a ruler along the bent edges.




I removed the tape and soldered the open edges.
Then a used a bit of scrap brass channel to make a couple braces for the top and lower inside rear edges to strengthen them.




I'll make a louvered door on the front when those etchings get here.

Thanks Jerry and thanks for looking in Larry!

I really like the front and side railings on this critter. I found the photo on the web, it's a pretty close match to the colored pencil drawing of the loco T Yorke drew. As you can see its where I got the idea for that Electrical? box.



I used some bronze rod and some brass flat bar to get the shape as close as I could, although I made it narrower because there won't be side steps, but rather steps on the front I'll make out of angle stock.

I'm making side railings like the ones in the photo as well.

While I was at the Hobby shop ... Entry with appointment only... looking for some brass hex nuts I found these #00-90 brass washers.

I thought they would be good for railing mounts instead of making something on my own.

I think they look good!








Off to do the side Railings and some steps.

Wow! The extra details are fantastic. The idea for the railing mounts is a keeper as id making the pattern from painters tape. Loving what I am learning on this build. Thanks for posting the extra information.

Dave those are some very nice looking details. Great job on the construction of them. That's going to be quite the detailed Critter when your finished.
