Les - Domed ends don't seem to be excessive on this little trammer more of a chamfer on the edges on other versions like the Porter or Eimco they do cause a bit of a problem being very domed  either a Lathe job or one of the many sizes from the plastruct range they do Hemispherical domes ranging from 9.5mm dia to 38.1 mm dia supplied by EMA Model Supplies in the Uk email - sales@ema-models.com - www.plastruct.co.uk  these domes fit there range of Acrylic Rod and Tubes -LEGO also do a few domes but the sizes are limited and Grandt Line Products do a couple of domed ends for there tank cars a 72in( no'11) and 77in (no'12 ) thats in 1/4scale best option I would think is the Plastruct version they cover more sizes - but for my little beast its a quick chamfer or the edges

Thank you for the two references. Grandt Line used to have some nice molded rivets and nut-bolt-washers but their tooling wore out, quality declined, and many parts have disappeared from the catalog.

The model looks beautiful (as usual).

I've been away from the forum for a few days so just getting caught up. Marvelous work as usual, very sharp! 

I've never heard of that square piston Dake engine before. What an odd contraption!
