Sorry for the delay posting more pictures, lots of little bits of work going on but I've not had the right conditions for photography. However, it has given me time to master the settings on my new camera....
Detail around the coupling unit and ballast weight. Boltheads are slices of Plastruct hex rod.
LISTER lettering is Slaters 1.5mm letters (thanks Dad!) whilst the axleboxes are, after much thought, hair-pulling, and trial, from the Knightwing 4mm scale Deutz diesel loco kit, carefully cut from the sideframes and shaped. Better than anything I could make myself! I did however add the oiling points from plastic rod.
Much of the recent work has been in the cab interior, adding the gearbox, clutch, gear lever, seat etc All made from plastic sheet, strip and section wih a sliver of brass tube and a dressmaking pin (thanks Mum!)
The other side of the cab. Pedal is from brass strip and plastic, with the foot rest from plastic section. The brake column is a Sidelines casting with a new base.
Our driver. As Brian found with his kit Lister, I had to get the driver to rest his foot on the pedal. The body and limbs are from the Italari 1/24th truck pack whilt the head is a Preiser one from a pack of seated figures. Much Milliput and filler later he sits comfortably in the cab.
Progress so far. All the body detailing is still to be done, more bolt heads and those catches on the bonnet front.
