    Turning into another great build Ron. A couple of your pipe bends have suffered a bit but I'd think you'll can correct that. It looks excellent. Looking forward to the paint job. :thumbs:

    The real square ducting wouldn't have been bent, they'd have cut and shut to get the curve. Mind you I think you can buy it already done in resin, not sure but it might be A1 models. Still the whole things looking great! Well done mate :thumbs:.

    Pete.

    The buildings come up a treat Ron looking forward to seeing it progress with the weathering.
    Great reuse of materials etc to produce a really nice model.

    You could just make up some square overlays to cover the corners like junction boxes, as Pete said would have been cut and shut so in sections with Junction box style joins would be ok:thumbs:

    Ron it's looking the business around the yard now

    The driver of the Shunter was a bit rough on that hopper, you will have to show them the adjustment of CV 3 acc rate so they won't pull the couplers :avatar:
