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,

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

More picture of the head light and marker lights .Parts for the steam dome . I am going to try casting the other parts for the steam and sand domes when the weather get warmer . Cost way to much to buy the brass to make them . So far no luck in making the number boards .

Nice work, did you have a drawing or dimensions for your headlight. I need to make one, but have only a couple photos and know they were 19 inch full scale. Any info you could share, would be appreciated.
Tom
