Starting the detailing
So, to make a start on the fine detail of the locomotive. The picture below shows my initial stage:
Thanks to Adrian Marks of the GERS, I have photos of the left and right sides of sequential locomotives from my intended production (1899) batch of the Y14. They are also in roughly the correct period. You'll see that I've printed them off at A4 size. I've then ringed each detail that I can see on the locomotive and that isn't already on the model.
Some of these fittings already come with the Alan Gibson kit. Some I will have to make from scratch. And so to the soldering iron...
