Hehe, ok I quit pondering and just took the plunge

Ok, now I know those LC parts were meant to be used without the colored parts, however I did use two of them, because the LC parts showed the lines only at one side.

But without further words... the pictures (keep in mind this is only my first steam engine) :














Well that's about it for today, I don't know if I'll be able to work on it tomorrow since I need some supplies while of course all shops are closed on sunday. Monday won't be much better either, because I will be in hospital (hopefully only for one day if nothing goes wrong).

Good start, looking forward to a clean build. Is the Duilio on permanent hold due to issues? Guess I will have to get that scratchbuild book out of storage after all :(

Yeeesss, you hit the road! Well done so far. (Construction of steam engines doesn't differ from other kinds of paper models. :-)

The prototype was a nice-looking locomotive, and you are off to a good start with the frame.

Well, it took a while, but here's a little update.

What was on the programm today, was the suspension... well at least I was able to install half of it anyway

Starting with the attachment things for the springs :

As you may be able to see ; I have replaced the paper rolled things by alu tube.

Then, I found out I had lost a piece of paper, containing a few parts, luckily they were simple parts that are easy to copy.


And finally, I got to make and install the springs themselves :

Off from work yesterday, so, finally I had some time to work on this little machine ("machine" is the slang we use at work (I'm a train engineer) for "locomotive" (we never ever use that word)).

Ok, where did I log off ? Oh, ok, found it, let's move on...

Next move is to place the second side of the suspension on.

Next, came the attachements for the brakeworks :


Placed (at least at one side to check) :


Then came the wheels... now, according to the kit it was going to be fracking complicated, but I had ordered the LC parts, that also contained the parts for the wheels...

And in a matter of a few hours, all six wheels were completed :

Hello again.
After a while of inactivity, I worked a bit on this machine yesterday. The progress isn't that spectacular, but at least it kept me away from the pub

Ok, a locomotive needs to be able to brake and in order for the brakes to work it needs a brakecilinder :


And together :



Then there were nuts...


So, that's it for today, at the moment it's drying from a layer of primer.

Soon to be continued
