16mm scale scratch built 2ft gauge Ruston loco, based on a photo of one I saw on Flikr. Mostly styrene construction, lots of rust (salt technique plus Bragdon powders). The couplers and control levers were 3D printed - lots of sanding and filling required on the gearbox cover.

A photo during construction plus one completed (which gives the impression the loco is on a lean!)

Nice. I take it this is supposed to be an out-of-service loco?

Looks good. Do you have a place for it to retire ?

It will "rest in peace" among other (still to be built) locos. I have a half built Kerr Stuart "Wren" chassis to rust up, a lathe (which is what I am working on now) and drill press kits, the odd old wagon, perhaps a stationary steam engine. In other words whatever I fancy making. Then it will all be placed in front of a Marcel Ackle type building.
