Growler 1 update

Progress on Growler 1 is slow but steady. After considering my options (ie: putting it off) for a while I finished the radiators last night. They aren’t an exact copy of the real thing, and maybe when I'm building locos in brass I'll redo it, but until then I'm satisfied with how it looks.

The model under construction is shown next to the mock-up. I balanced the radiators on the frames for the photo, but I'll wait until the bonnet is ready before I glue the lot together.

If you click on the picture you'll find a couple more pictures including a closeup...
