So this is my entry offering for the 2020 Shelf Queen competition, it is a Scorpio Models Gauge O Britannia Pacific loco which I intend to complete in painted form as 70010 Owen Glendower in lined out BR Loco Green with nameplates fitted. Up to press I have completed the tender build with the exception of adding electrical pic ups, the loco frames are complete and effectively it is a free rolling chassis which needs pick ups and motor fitting, the bogie and rear truck are complete and some motion and rod sub assemblies have already been put together. The body requires the cab and footplate building up, the whole of the boiler and footplate dressing with parts, these include lubricators, smokebox door smoke deflectors, sanding gear, boiler / firebox attachments and all the plumbing including injectors and steam pipes plus other stuff which I shall have to look through. Basically in a nutshell there is still quite a lot to do and obviously the cylinder slide bars with piston crossheads need to be built up too. Now I have also started a new photo album called Yorkie's Britannia 2020 Shelf Queen Album for those who may wish to follow the picture reports when they happen, this also makes matters easier in distinguishing the Shelf Queen build work from the original build work of a couple of years ago. Finally this loco when finished will form a main exhibiting part of my collection, for now I shall only DC fit but at some other point in the foreseeable future this will go DCC, I really need to think long and hard before choosing the set up and I think this is outside the scope and remit of this competition. Anyway here is the first official competition picture of 70010 which shows my intent and the state of build currently, once the competition gets underway next week I shall start work with the motion and cylinder slidebar arrangement.
