Looks good Zak.

I think your right about 'white' lettering. 'TLAR' to me.

Admire speed and detail in your work, our own Hussien Bolt in modelling terms........

I forgot to mention the track, this was OO rail removed from the plastic sleepers.
My sleepers are wood and the track is then pinned to this with cut down and bent staples.
I think the photos show this.
I did of course use a track gauge to get the correct gauge, well in this case the incorrect gauge.
In 1:1 the track gauge is 60cm, in 1/32 this should be 18.75 mm. Mine will be 16.5mm - i.e. OO gauge.
This is then ballasted.

You would not believe how much trouble you can cause with the odd millimetre!

The guns were quite a load for the small Simplex locos, guess I will have to build something bigger to cope with the artillery.
The WDLR used a number of different steam locos:
Hunslet 4-6-0T
Baldwin4-6-0T
Alco 2-6-2T
and others
The numbers are the wheel arrangements
So the Hunslet has 4 bogie wheels and 6 driving wheels, i.e. 2 pairs of bogie wheels and 3 pairs of driving wheels. So from the side the wheels would be oo-OOO-The T means it is a tank engine - the water is carried in tanks at the side of the boiler.
It will be 1/32 and follow all the usual techniques.
From 1916-1919 the Leeds Company supplied 155 of these locos.
The wheels were from an old OO locomotive, not quite correct but near enough to look the part.
These were inside frame locos - the wheels being outside the frames.
I think the photos show the buld and need little explaining, the balsa inner is to add a bit of rigidity.

After a walk from Flamborough to Sewerby and back I did get down to some modelling.
Cab and side tanks from plastic card.
Chassis and bogies cleaned up and altered.
Then some work on the cylinders done.

Chuffing along with this build Zak!

Quite an undertaking to build a full locomotive, I doff my hat to you Sir!

More bits added, boiler, and front.
The boiler is plastic card wrapped around a cardboard tube as a former.
It is all done by plastic card and filler.

Having read you post in HMS Warspite, I presume you are referring to me?
I only model myself on Guy Martin - I wish.

Another excellent model -- as we have come to expect.  Even the round tube for the boiler is ROUND.

Yes Zak,
I agree with Msea, another excellent build from virtually scratch.
I wish I had your skill and ability.
