Looks great, Arno!

What are the white things with the ends curving down, over two of the axles? Are they part of the equalization system?

Thanks Ray.  Smiley
Yes, they are part of the spring gear. Called equalizing levers. Because the boiler, there is no clearance for the springs on the 3th and 4th drivers >The driving-wheel springs are inside the frame. Note: The first and 2nd driving-wheels springs will be over the driving boxes (see the spring saddles).

A couple of years ago I watched a guy build a 1:24 scale loco from paper and he did it much as you are doing it, piece by piece. I couldn't wait for each new post and feel the same way now. -- Russ

When I see so nice assemblies, made out of styrene or metal, I'm always pondering between the will to leave them unpainted to better show the assembly work or to complete the process. We should make two models, the didactic one and the realistic one...
In some cases, it would be the shortest path to madness, though...

 Smiley Working on the "Driver Brake Fulcrum Bracket".

Styrene, Epoxy Duro (aka Green Stuff). Then a thick coat of Mr.Surfacer1000


A thin coat of primer


About the foundry marks. I have no visual references for these Brakets, but I know there are always symbols on casting pieces...
I found similar pieces with marks from the same locomotive builder and did the same ones  Smiley

Cheers guys

Splendid. So, do I understand you sculpted the symbols from the green stuff?

Hat's off. Not only does it seem impressive as Ray says, but I'd say it looks beyond my capacities.
