It's a wet drizzly day so i managed to do a bit more on the B4.
She;s a fiddly little bugger but were getting there.
Here she is parked outside Pine Road signal box
A side on view
The front end, bearing in mind that this is an old kit it's gone together fairly well.
I don't like to use cast buffers but i can't find anyone that do an LSWR pattern sprung buffer of this type.
The next Two photos show that there is not a lot of room for the valve gear behind the front steps. Not one to be beaten, i cut the steps down and made a small brass bracket just enough to move them out a touch.
Yeah! no room there at all

There a bit missing, it's not in the kit.
It's this bit.
Not entirely sure what this is for or where to get one from other than ringing Southeastern Finecast
A few jobs to go and then a good clean up ready for paint.
Do i really have to paint her black!

Off for a cup of tea, the back is beginning to ache.
It's an age thing, don't you know.
