Took a break from a couple larger projects. Thought this would be a nice simple build/finish, and it was. Just replaced the molded in hand rails. Cute little thing. As usual, with close up photos, I've noticed a couple things yet to tend to.

Cute indeed. What scale is this?

but I believe it's HO,

It would have been boxed by Airfix as OO/HO, but I am pretty sure it is 1/76th scale (4mm to 1ft) for OO gauge track (16.5mm gauge, or HO in other countries).

Very nicely done.  Have built several in my time as well as numerous conversions (Fairlie Pug, anyone?).  But you've got me thinking I might try another.

Can I ask where you got the knobs for the replacement handrails please?

Lovely! The more steam locomotives on these pages the better I think.

I have a few bits of the Airfix version of this I bought about 40 years ago (or more...).

Shame rally.

I think that you can still get this as a Dapol kit.

 

Cheers, Alan.

Completely Obsessed. The "knobs" are HO gauge model railroad detail parts called "eyelets" I believe. Got them from Tichy Trains. https://www.tichytraingroup.com/ They have all sorts of very useful bits and bobs. 

Many thanks.  Have just noticed you are in Ohio.  Might try for someone a little more local!

Can't believe that's OO/HO scale!

I thought I was looking at something much larger.

That surely testifies to some excellent building and finishing skills.

👍👍
