Thanks everyone for looking in and all the nice comments.

I have a few more things done.

To complete the roof unit, there is a guard rail across the back, at least that's what it looks like to me.

I notched, bent and soldered a bit of 2mm brass tube, trimmed the end bits so the top rail set a little proud of the roof unit thingy, and soldered it in place.




Also made a quick set of hand rails for the rear door.






I added louvers to the front of that electrical box hoping they would also give it the look of being in a a door. Some thin diameter bronze wire as hinges should help pull off the look.





Finaly I made an air tank to add a little more interest to the engineers side of the side rails.





I want one on the roof too.


Need to pick up a couple pieces of brass tube to make it though.

Have a good day everyone!

Your critter is coming along very nicely, Dave. The handrails look terrific as does the roof "thingie" and the newly added details.

Dave the added details look great. You certainly are the "master" of metal; I see why you like using wire so much.

It's been a little while.
Since my last update I added some louvered vents on the side of the cab and a screened vent on the front left side.

Over the holidays I was painting and weathering.

It took me a while because I went all acrylic this time, I've used them before but not to this extent.

I also decided to paint my chips in rather than using the hairspray technique to have more control.

It's almost ready to get its mechanism and be wired for DCC and sound.

I changed up the stack to resemble the prototype and need to fade, weather and chip that as well as add the sander lines.















Not long now till its complete.

Have a great day everyone!

Dave, the Dog looks terrific. The weathering is convincing, and I can almost hear it clanking along. ~mike
