I truly admire someone who can put so much time and effort into such tiny details that will eventually mostly be covered up by other parts... you really do raise the bar every time you add to this thing, your talents and dedication are amazing!

Merry Christmas to you too.

Hi there
Finished driving units. With the experience at front engine , I could assembly with less error.
I tried doing oil dirty to the side rods and all aluminium colored parts. I found a picture of Challenger (restored 3985) which is a good source for weathering Big Boy. Oil dirty performs aluminium parts looked better solidity than the plain aluminium surface. I will do to the front engine's too when final weathering.

Cheers

Possibly the most extensive project I have ever seen anywhere, plastic or otherwise.

I knew this thing was big, but that pic with the man next to it! It's immense! How about a picture of the model with your hand to give an idea of its size?

Hi alfadoc
At the beginning of the the back engine , I've ever measured the whole model length. Here is the pictures.
