Most impressive, as always!

What are those two brass parts? They look like some kind of cylinders?

Thanks guys for your comments. Here's two photos of my progress. The frame is now finished and painted.

Ray ...The brass parts are the brake cylinders.

Yeah, what Marty said. Did you use those Testors "Metalizer" paints that you buff when they dry? -- Russ

 Thanks guys for your comments. Marty, l used a graphite pencil over the Engine Black paint and then a light coat of Dull-Cote. The Dull-Cote washes the pencil out so I may take the wheel off one more time and do the pencil thing with out the Dull-Cote. If that don't look good I will do another coat of dull-Cote. BTW I got this trick from you.

Now that's funny Gordon!

I have been using the mig dark steel powder as of late and honestly forgotten the pencil trick.

 Thank guys for your comments. Here's some photos of my finished loco.

This photo showing the loco on it's base and this sitting on a carrying cradle

The base... 3/4” x 6” x 23”. board. I added a layer of Matt-board to the top with wood rails to sit the loco on. The entire base is painted white to match the back-drop. I don't want anything to distract from the model.

The carrying cradle...1/4”x 8 x 26” tempered hard board with plywood handles.
