Almost there!

The final stages of building the 57xx pannier are now within sight as this view of the bunker rear shows. Much extra detail has been added including the fire-iron and lamp brackets. I intend to make a set of fire-irons and the inevitable bucket to hang on the back!

These views were taken a couple of weeks ago and since then I have added the injectors and top-feed pipes. The cab roof will be fitted after all the painting has been completed and a crew added. The smokebox door handles are 4mm items cut down in length and thinned down a tad. Much better than anything I could cobble together and I don't care for moulded-on ones.
