Hi ho.

Nice seeing progress pictures and yes as I said before tablets and other handheld devices have a habit of cropping pictures.

Thanks Lynn, I suppose its just my lack of understanding when it comes to using this Tablet which is still pretty new to me,don't think that I would have ever got the photo's on here in the first place without your help.thanks again.

Just a quick update on Bertie,I have now put the front axle,wheels,smokebox and chimney together to me its quite impresive ,I know that the front wheels need painting but I am waiting until I recieve my rear wheels which have been delayed due to a problem with the hubs at stw,I will paint all four at the same time,at least that's the plan.

Here's a few photo's of the progress.

Great to see your progress. I've signed up for the 4" roller starting next year so currently reading everyones build threads to get ideas! Can I ask what paint you have used for the smokebox and chimney? Also how are you doing the lining as it looks great and probably the one thing I am most apprehensive about?!

Hi,congratulations on signing up for the 4" roller it looks to be quite an engine,
The paint that I have used on the chimney and smokebox is 'Plasticoat ' satin finish Barbeque Paint from B AND Q.in an aerosol,just give it light coats to build up the paint and you will get a lovely finsh after good preperation pre paint.

The lines are done by using finnesse lining tape and lining/signwriting enamel ,both of which I purchased from Craftmaster.
The lining was something that I was most concerned and aprehensive about too,having got a really good finish on the paint I was really concerned that I would mess everything up and have to start again but apart from actually removing the clear film from the tape I need't have worried everything went well and I was really pleased with the end result.
The problem with the removal of the clear film on the tape for me was overcome by leaving plenty of extra length (waste ) at the start or finish of the tape and a pair of square nosed tweezers advise that I obtained on here.

Enjoy your build .........John

Glad you are back and hopefully on the mend. Backlog of kits to build hopefully equates to lots of pictures of progress.
