Having virtually completed the tender (including fitting the motor) i though i would take on the small task of creating extra details.
This includes brake detail, coal space, fireiron tool stowage and tools, and water transfer pipes.
This image shows the coal space i have created. The reason for doing this is because i don't believe in showing a tender always full of coal.
It was very difficult to create this around the motor and running gear and still maintain something that resembles the real thing.
I have also added the water tank breather vents and the access rail at the front of the space.
In this picture you can see the Water Transfer pipe from the Tender Sieve Box, also you can see more pipe detail just forward of the front axel spring.
If you look closely you can also see some brakes and brake rods behind the side frames. I am now very happy with what has been achieved on this model, all that is needed now is some paint.
