Well its finnished so dont be disapointed as it is nothing clever just a LADDER, hear are two pictures showing it next to the picture I used to get some detail, and one where it will eventuly go when painted it will be bolted on with 12ba brass bolts , I tend to bolt as many fittings on as I can that way I can paint first then bolt on , or remove if there is a problem , and they dont fall off as I dont mind making one but get bored re making parts that I have lost.

thanks for taking part sorry it was not more interesting. :ddb:

Peter... It isn't boring. It is very interesting. We get to see your skill and talent PLUS we get to use our brains trying to figure it out! Very cool in my book.

Thanks

Very nice indeed Peter.

Just like yourself, I used to spend days getting fittings 'just so'. If it didn't look right, another one was made.

Yours looks spot on.

Here is a shot of a very young uncle Bogs with a 4ft clyde puffer I was building, unfortunately all my brasswork had been painted by then. Because of the scale, all fittings had to be hand made. So I know the labour of love you are putting into this model.

Nice one Peter. Should have reconized it since they use something similar in the model railroading hobby. A flat piece of brass forumed up and holes in it for the rungs. Again very nice fabrication job.

Bog's, I'm impressed. This must have been before you consumed all those jammy donuts and coffee, right.  :lol:
