It's a nifty little locomotive, and your Autocad rendering shows excellent detail.

The Frame

This model was designed to accommodate the novice while not excluding all of the fine details that a more experienced modeler would appreciate.

A novice can assemble the bulk of the model using only the first 50 parts or so but that leaves an additional 350 parts for the rest of us, there is more than enough 2mm tubing and detail to keep even the most ardent modeler busy for awhile, there are a total of 398 parts on eight part sheets.

So, this model starts out pretty simple, just a series of rectangles but as it progresses, it gets increasingly more challenging.

Okay, letís see if I can still do this, it starts out by assembling the two, side rails and three cross members, care has to be taken as there are two sets of receiving marks on the front and back ends of the rails, the front cross member has to be set on the second set of marks and the back cross member has to be set on the final set of marks to properly accommodate the corresponding bumper staves.

Care also has to be taken to assure that the proper staves are secured to the bumpers as the front and back bumper configurations differ.

Since time is a critical factor, Iíve made no attempt to color the edges.

At this stage, the model really is a lot of fun and goes together rather quickly.

As a, "point of clarification", the reason that, "time is a critical factor", is because my primary objective is NOT to see how, "well" I can assemble these models but rather, my primary objective is to see how FAST I can assemble them! (as I really have other things that I'm supposed to be doing)... I'm certain that someone with more time and patience could easily build a much better model than I can...

History and modeling all wrapped up together, cool.

Frame bracing

From this point forward the frame is inverted so all of the below frame details can be added, first, the axle blocks are formed and added to the frame, then the frame bracing is doubled and cut out, note the 90 degree bend at the end of the diagonal bracing, these are then attached to the frame and axle blocks, this is where the yellow pin striping first becomes prevalent, the last two images show how the bracing attaches to the inside of the front and back bumpers.

Final touches

Next, the couplers are constructed, they are basically, "drop-pin" couplings, the strapping and hinges are added to the cinder hopper and both are then added to the frame.
