Hi Dalem9 and group, Thanks for your so prompt reply,
I've often thought that 1/2 and 3/4 scales were harder to work on than the larger. You certainly have a great finish and sizing in your parts,
Have done one 1" scale and some 1.1/2 locos. Here is a photo of my last. The loco is an enlarged to 1.1/5 scale version of Kozo's Heisler.
Bot obviously the boiler had to be done from scratch,

Thanks Dale. I do have a million questions but will search out Utube as well before bothering you.
