Again a beautiful pilot.

One of the things id like to do before kicking the bucket is to build a steam locomotive. Unfortunately my efforts are currently focused on issues with the house.

Here are the frames and doors I made for the headlight on my K27. There will be a light in it so you can see the number board numbers . Hope you guys like them they were a lot of work making .

It has been awhile since dropping in on this thread, it is great to see the master class work being done here!

As for the lights are you making them out of LEDs? It is pretty amazing what can be done with LEDs these days.

Excellent workmanship in every Piece,
Two questions please
1 what scale or gauge is your Lokomotive?
2 how did you derive your frame parts? Are they laser or water cut? for example.

Just stumbled across this. These look amazing! Dale, do you have anything telling how you cast these? Tried searching but couldn't find anything.

Thanks,

Hi rad45 it is 3/4 scale and the frame was cut on a bench top mill by hand .It is 3 piece that are bolted together. Parry I build a furnace and made a model of the wheel and then casted them .They were the first casting I ever made . If you have other questions I will be glad to answer them .I did a lot of reading and them watched a lot on u tube .
