7mm scale 101 - a tribute to Richard Chown

 What I hope will be the penultimate update on this project.

 The tender now has coal and the buffer beam has its number, while the boiler bands have been improved and additional, inner, red lines put in on the tender and cab. All that remains now is to wire up the tender pick ups to the loco, then give the model a coat of satin varnish. 

 For comparison, have included a couple of pictures with Richard's own first broad gauge loco - WLWR Shannon, scratch built in the early 1970s. Hopefully, 101 number 241 sits well alongside it. This has not been a project to outdo the maestro, but to build what was his own unstarted kit as something that sits well alongside Shannon as I attempt to move my modelling back to the early 1900s. After so many years doing everything in plain black [with errors easily covered by weathering], the learning curve has been, and remains, steep.
