Hi Folks,

Thank you for all your encouraging remarks.
This Model Loco kit was purchased to fill a void in the RTR market, for a loco that was a very common sight in the area where I have based my layout.
Further progress on DB Neubaukessl 03.1073.
Its now scratchbuilding parts out of plastic card, Brass strip and chequer plate, with Weinert bits.
The front frames(plastic card) were built up as a sub assembly and painted before being attached.
I am finding it to be a rewarding exercise, only trouble, the eyes are not what they were.



And with Sister loco 03.1056.

Excellent progress David - I'm really looking forward to seeing the lok finished.

Thanks for the pics - the natural light makes all the difference.

Good Evening Folks!

Sorry for the delay in progress reports on the 03.10, but a friend passed on a homepage http://www.albertrain.be/ full of Roco Spare part sheets,

This has proved to be valuable in helping source parts for the project.
I ordered Roco part 105950 Gangway assembly/ under boiler plumbing unit for the 01.10/ 012, which arrived on Friday, this has so much fine detail incorporated including some very delicate pipework,
which will be used as a replacement unit for the one I was going to make by hand in Brass, saving me two weeks work with a soldering iron.

Looking at the spares sheet's also gave me a good excuse to discard the Liliput Drivers cab and replace it with the correct Roco 03.10 one, Part number 117458.
So once the parts arrive from Roco the project will be back on track.

Also just heard that the Weinert lost wax boiler plumbing is on its way.
