Thanks guys for your comments. Here's two photos of my progress.

The next jig is a flat board with graph paper and two strips of basswood glued to the top. The two strips are spaced out to the track gauge. To this I added  wood assembly blocks to hold the boiler cab and rear frame assembly in place. With the help of this jig the rest of the loco can be added.



 Out of styrene I finished the rear frame with coupler pocket and the two rear cab braces. The ash-pan is build out of wood and styrene. The tri-cock valves are castings from Precision Scale Co. The injectors are scratch-built. And all of the valves and valves handles are from Trackside Detail



I will finish all of the pipe detail and other cab detail before adding the roof.

Beautiful work, Gordon. 

I model in 1:13.7 scale (7/8ths of an inch equals one foot).  There are very few detail castings available in this scale so scratchbuilding items such as injectors is just a necessity.  I'd love to see a close-up or two of your injectors so I can go to school on how you made them.

Its a while since I have seen any updates on the Glover. I was wondering what driving wheels will you be using as trawling through suppliers there is little or non in the way of G scale or 16mm loco driving wheels available, its all wagon/coach wheels.  The only way I could think of having any would be 3d printing (for a static model).

Thanks guys for your comments. I've been working on 1:1 projects on my home all summer long. Now it's time to get back to modeling full time.

Bill... I copied castings from Trackside Detail for my injectors. I'm working on the rest of the cab details, before moving on to the running gear,
Les...I will build up the drivers the same way I did on my little Baldwin loco.
