Rivet-counting…

Overall view, showing separated body/cab

For many years, I’ve been the sort of modeller to say “shoot me when I start counting the rivets”… unfortunately that attitude doesn’t seem to get one very far in the manufacturing business! Some progress has been made this evening on the water tank rivets on this, the “seamed” tank style loco body. I’ll most likely draw the non-seamed tank style up as a future option as well. A small change to the models’ intended construction has taken place, with the cab becoming a separate part to the body. This allows for far simpler assembly, and permits the different styles of bunker to be replicated. Yes, this is as mind-numbing as it looks…
